Early in the basketball season teams love to test themselves. Reading and Berks Catholic have done that the last couple of years against Philadelphia area teams.
Friday was this year's showcase at Albright College's Bollman Center. Reading's boys (2-2) faced perennial power Neumann-Goretti (2-0) and the Saints showed why they have that status.
Neumann-Goretti pulled away for a 64-41 win over the Red Knights. Johnny Davis led all scorers with 22 points for the Saints.
Berks Catholic (2-2) faced Roman Catholic (2-3) to tip-off the evening. These Saints owned the night as well.
BC notched a 55-48 win over Roman Catholic. The Saints' Mike Miller was the game's top scorer with 21 points. Nana Foulland had 13 while Chris Warren added ten.
