Reaves sparks Paul VI past Benedictine

6-foot-4 junior has five dunks in 69-58 victory


FROSTBURG — Joshua Reaves scored 22 points, grabbed six rebounds and led four double-figure scorers as Paul VI made a living from the free-throw line in Game IV of the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament late Thursday evening in defeating Benedictine, 69-58.
Reaves, a 6-foot-4 junior, had five dunks, including back-to-back slams to end the third quarter, and finished 7 for 8 from the field and 8 of 9 from the foul line to lead all scorers for the Panthers (29-6), of Fairfax, Va., who will play defending champion O’Connell in another battle of Virginia teams on Friday at 9:15.
Evan Taylor had 12 points and seven rebounds, Marcus Derrickson 12 points and Kevin Dorsey 10 points for Paul VI, which hit 12 of 13 foul shots in the second quarter and 35 of 45 for the game. Dorsey was 10 for 10, Taylor 8 of 14, Tyler Scanlon 7 of 10.
Reaves had three dunks in the first quarter, the last one a one-handed one after grabbing a rebound just before the buzzer. It gave Paul VI the lead for good at 19-18.
“Josh brings so much energy and athleticism to the game,” said Panthers coach Glenn Farello. “He brings a lot of things to the table. It’s obvious what kind of game he has and what he can do with the ball and above the rim, but he’s also so good without the ball, and that’s very important and such a big key.”
Indiana-bound Robert Johnson, a 6-3 guard, had 20 points, 13 in the fourth quarter, for Benedictine (24-6), of Richmond, Va., which made only 14 trips to the foul line, making seven.
The fouls piled up on Benedictine early, putting Paul VI into the one-and-one with 6:51 left in the first half. Reaves began the 12 for 13 second-quarter team showing from the line by making all three tries after being fouled on a three-pointer to open the second quarter, which ended 35-30.
