VASJ wrapped up the regular season with a 109-62 loss to Division I power St. Edward on Feb. 22 at Viking Village.
Junior guard Jaden Hameed scored 34 points for the Vikings and passed Simon Texidor on the school’s all-time 3-point field goals list. Hameed hit seven 3s and now has 161 in his career.
“I think we just played the D1 state champs – I hope so,” VASJ coach Babe Kwasniak said. “Coach (Eric) Flannery held the ball for the last 2 minutes – he probably could have scored 150 on us. He’s a class act. I mean, they have three studs that have been playing varsity for four years, I just don’t see a weakness with that team. They made 20 3-point field goals.
“The real season starts Tuesday. I’m looking forward to blocking out the distractions and focusing on trying to win our 8th straight district title.”
VASJ (8-14) opens postseason play on Feb. 25 at home vs. Edgewood in a Division II sectional semi.
