Point guard Ayan Teel led four Knights in double figures en route to a Bishop O’Connell victory over Springbrook at Morgan and Kathy Wootten Gymnasium.

“They are a good team,” said Springbrook head coach Darnell Myers, “and they’re well-coached and they got good players.”

Teel, who finished with 14 points, helped Bishop O’Connell jump out to a 32-30 advantage in the first half before the Knights blew the game open in the second half.

“I’m going to embrace this new role as the leader of the team and I hope it takes us far in this summer league,” said Tarke.
