No. 4 St. Anthony (N.J.) finishes season a perfect 32-0 with resounding wins

Seniors at St. Anthony (Jersey City, N.J.) High School entered the season in danger of becoming the first class to go through four years at the national basketball powerhouse without a state championship.

They dodged that distinction in style.

The Friars, ranked fourth nationally in the latest Super 25 rankings, first dispatched Roselle Catholic 53-37 for the state title, then stomped Linden Monday night 55-38 to win the New Jersey Tournament of Champions and finish the season a perfect 32-0.

“It means the world to me and my teammates. After losing three straight years to the same team (Roselle) in the state championship, us seniors set a goal for ourselves to go out as T of C champions and it feels great to say that we did that,” St. Anthony senior guard Jagan Mosely, a Georgetown-commit, told “We weren’t focused on having a perfect season, but to be able to say that we’re the eighth team at St. Anthony’s to go undefeated? That’s special.”

His coach, the legendary Bob Hurley, echoed those sentiments.

“I’m happy for this group of seniors. I live in the now more than I live in previous accomplishments,” Hurley told the paper after winning his record 13 T of C title. “I’m near the end of my coaching career. I should be living in the present all the time.”
