No. 4 St. Anthony ends N.J. state title drought -- for them -- at three years

By

Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley Jr. and St. Anthony of Jersey City, N.J., are state champions again.

St. Anthony, ranked No. 4 in the Super 25, beat Roselle Catholic 53-37 in the state Non-Public B championship game after losing to the Lions in each of the last three title games.

It’s only been three years since the 2012 title, but that is an eternity when you consider the history of St. Anthony, which has now won 28 state titles. Next up is the Tournament of Champions, which St. Anthony has won 11 times.

St. Anthony (30-0) , with five Division I signees, took the lead in the second quarter and then had to hold off Roselle Catholic (22-8) in the fourth, when the Lions cut it to four. Point guard Jagan Mosely, a Georgetown signee, had nine of his 16 points in the final quarter, including a pair of clutch threes.
