Red Rams return to boys hoops sectional final

J-D tops Cortland, to face Bishop Ludden for Class A title

— The growth of those youngsters was evident against Cortland, as J-D benefited from its most well-balanced offensive game of the season.

Seven Red Rams put in at least seven points, and five of those players were the very same who toiled away on the team that lost in the Class A quarterfinals one season ago. Now, they’re seeing the rewards.

Chief among those rewards is their opponent in the Class A final next Saturday night at the Carrier Dome - Bishop Ludden, who knocked them out in that sectional quarterfinal a season ago and also beat J-D early in January. The Rams haven't lost since.

“We’ve been waiting all season to get back at them,” said Kinsey. “We can win it.”

“We know they (Ludden) are the team to beat in our league,” McKenney said. “It’s kind of contrasting styles - size against small and quick, and a little bit of craziness. It’ll be a fun game.”
