Neumann-Goretti Basketball

The Saint look forwarf to the upcoming season

Many local hoops pundits were shocked to learn that Neumann-Goretti boys’ basketball was ranked 11th in the preseason by MaxPreps.Com. But others were not. Neumann has been in the national rankings for several years running. The Saints bring back junior Ja’Quan Newton and senior John Davis (Towson).

“We’re looking forward to another good season,” said Neumann-Goretti assistant coach John Mosco.

Neumann-Goretti is playing Lower Merion at Lower Merion on December 7.

“Can’t wait for that game and the whole season,” said Newton, who is a top-25 talent in his class. “We’ll be ready.” The team will be scrimmaging Imhotep Charter, which it could see in the AAA playoffs this season.
