On the game from

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Neumann-Goretti (Philadelphia) has played one of the toughest schedules in the country, with games against four teams that have spent time in the Super 25 high school boys basketball rankings. All four of those games were losses, however, but on Sunday, the Saints defeated regionally ranked Greensboro Day (Greensboro, N.C.) 72-69 in the Spalding Hoophall Classic.

The difference is a healthy Quade Green. The speedy 6-1 guard, a Kentucky signee, has been slowed at times this season with a back and ankle injury. At full strength Sunday, he had 29 points, five rebounds and 10 assists.

Neumann-Goretti (9-5) needed nearly every one of Green’s points because J.P. Moorman, a Temple signee, had 26 points for the Bengals (22-3).
