Image

The Windsor Warriors rolled through the 2011 CCC Tournament, knocking off two undefeated teams to claim the championship. Windsor scored an 85-70 win over Imagepreviously unbeaten Maloney in the championship game after handing Northwest Catholic its first loss of the season in the semi finals.

The Warriors opened a 23-point lead midway through the third period of the final game. Although Maloney closed to within 12 several times down the stretch, the Warriors were able to hold off every attempt by the Spartans to get back into the game.

The Warriors used pressure defense to take an early lead, then pulledImage away in the third period before Maloney settled down and was able to break the pressure. Windsor led 37-26 at the half after a late three pointer by George Curry. The Warriors expanded the lead to 56-33 before Maloney cut into the lead behind senior Ryan Belote who hit four three's and forward Darrius Edwards who pulled the Spartans to within 11. But Maloney could get no closer.


Belote was the game's leading scorer with 24 points. Edwards added 23 Imagefor the Spartans. But the balanced Windsor attack saw 13 different players score led by Na Sean Banks and freshman Jarred Wilson Frame who had 13 each. The Warriors, who suffered their only loss at the hands of Galstonbury in the second game of the season, extended ther winning streak to 22 as they improved their record to 23-1 with the victory. Maloney saw its 23-game win streak come to an end and fell to 23-1 on the year.
