Quadri Moore Leads Linden to Come-From-Behind Victory over CBA

In a game of conflicting styles, Linden with size on the inside and guards who like to work in transition, and Christian Brothers Academy that likes to work on the outside and manufacture points, the fourth game of the Hoop Group Tip Off Classic had the makings of a good one.

But it was the three-ball, that which CBA thrives or struggles by, that was the deciding factor Saturday evening, as the Colts shot just 4/18 from distance and Linden pulled away, winning 51-41.

“We went with a smaller lineup and we put a little more pressure on them,” said head coach Danny Robertozzi. “We went to a quicker lineup and we switched the high screen at the foul line, which helped us.”

Big man Quadri Moore brought home MVP honors with 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting from the floor.

Christian Brothers seemed to be in control moving into the latter part of the second half, but Linden was able to speed up the pace, making CBA uncomfortable and converting on opportunities.

“That gives a very young team, we start a freshman, two sophomores, and two seniors who have never played, gives them confidence that we can win tight games and we can come from behind to win games,” said Robertozzi.

Eric Shaw had 14 points for Christian Brothers, in the losing effort.
