Coming off a championship season Ryan Fazekas returned to Marquette Catholic for his senior season after Brewster Academy coach Jason Smith reached out to try and scoop up the 6’8 wing forward from Michigan City, IN a few games into his junior season.
Marquette Catholic head coach Donovan Garletts is happy he did as the Blazers went on to win the Indiana High School Athletic Association State Finals in their first ever appearance. Fazekas scored 34 points in the overtime win including 7/11 from beyond the arc which broke a Class A State Finals record of 6 made 3-pointers. The State Championship rings will be given out before Friday’s home opener against Hanover Central.

Providence went 2-1 since the last release of the national polls on December 8th but that loss was to Brown at home. After the loss to Boston College on December 5th the Friars were only receiving 4 votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll and 0 votes in the AP Poll so it’s no real surprise that the Brown loss would be enough to stop all votes for Providence. The Friars only have 1 game this week which is on Saturday at home against UMass. A win there likely wouldn’t do much for their vote-getting appeal so I expect the Friars to be outside the national spotlight as they head to the Barclays Center on December 22nd to take on the 18th (AP)/19th (USA Today Coaches Poll) ranked Miami Hurricanes.
