Bother Rice guard Josh Niego saw his team struggling early in Friday night’s game against Providence. He knew he had to do something to provide a spark.
“Being a senior leader, it’s my job to get the guys going,” Niego said. “Me and Mike (Shepski), we had to hit some shots for us, but it all starts with defense. We had to turn up the defense.”
Niego ignited the Crusaders late in the second quarter, converting two three-point plays during a 12-3 surge that turned a seven-point deficit into a four-point halftime lead.
Host Brother Rice rolled from there, topping the Celtics 50-27 in the Catholic League South opener for both teams.
