RAHWAY, N.J. -- Eight days ago, Nate Pierre-Louis and his Roselle Catholic teammates lost a brutal double-overtime matchup to St. Patrick's in the Union County championship game at Kean University.

But Pierre-Louis said the Lions came out of that game feeling positive about the future -- not full of dread at the heartbreaking defeat that dropped Roselle Catholic to 0-4 in Union County title games.

"We were proud," said Pierre Louis, a 6-foot-3 junior guard. "It wasn't like one of those losses that we were mad about because we really played our hearts out that game."

UNION, N.J. -- Many high-majors have already reached out to Roselle Catholic's Nate Pierre-Louis, with his list of suitors only growing larger as the Class of 2017, 6-foot-3 point guard continues to play like he did Wednesday night in the Union County Tournament semifinals.

Pierre-Louis, who said postgame that Kansas is the latest to express interest, scored 10 of his team-high 13 points after halftime in Roselle Catholic's 56-46 win over Linden, advancing the Lions to the Union County final against The Patrick School on Saturday night back at Kean University.

It will be the third meeting this season between the two Non-Public B powerhouses, who have already split a pair of games and could meet a fourth time in the South Non-Public B semifinals in March. The Patrick School is ranked No. 2 in New Jersey by NJ.com, while Roselle Catholic is No. 4.

ROSELLE, N.J. -- It didn't take long for Naz Reid to flex his muscles on Saturday.

Just moments after the tip-off, the 6-foot-9 Reid threw home a cock-back dunk for the first basket of the game. Moments later, he was at it again with a steal and another slam dunk, setting the crowd into a frenzy.

It also didn't take long for Roselle Catholic to dominate, as they took an early nine-point lead and never looked back. The Lions went on to beat Raritan 75-48 behind Reid's 19 points at the Hoops for Troops showcase.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- One afternoon early last week, Georgetown assistant coach Kevin Broadus pulled his rental car into the parking lot at the Community Education and Recreation Center in Jersey City -- the St. Anthony's High School practice facility known as the CERC.

Once inside the gym, Broadus was one of several Division 1 assistant coaches watching an open gym featuring the Friars, the program run during the season by legendary Naismith Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley.

Georgetown already has one player committed from St. Anthony's in senior guard Jagan Mosely. And the Hoyas probably wouldn't mind adding a few more, either.
