EXPLORERS CHARGE PAST CLEVELAND — The Marquette Catholic Explorers did what they needed to do in pool play at the Metro East Lutheran Turkey Tip-Off Classic — win.
The Explorers downed Cleveland Junior Naval Academy 52-34 Wednesday in the final Pool B contest to move to 2-0.
Marquette's Shandon Boone led the offensive charge with 22 points. Ben Sebacher chipped in with 15 points, while Trey Aguirre had 8, Nick Messinger netted 4, Bryce Pettiford scored 2 and Reagan Snider had 1 point.
The Explorers now await the winner of Gibault and Gillespie Friday afternoon in gold bracket play at MELHS. That winner will face Marquette at 8:30 p.m. at Thomas Hooks Gym.
