Bishop McGuinness wins their first round playoff matchup at Hiwassee Dam. The Villains are headlined by CJ Cappuccio’s game high 30 points but it was the teams defensive effort and intent of being unselfish that led to the big lead. Ryan Moon, Johnny Pagano, and Ben Babcock shared the ball extremely well in the half court and on the break. The Villains will travel to #2 seed North Stanley on Thursday night for the second round of state playoffs.
