Head Coach Mr. Jason Delaney’s men’s varsity basketball team enters the annual City tournament as the top seed and will play the winner of the Arsenal Tech-Covenant Christian game at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 17 in the Welch Activity Center.

If the Irish win that game, they will play in the tournament semifinals on Jan. 19 at Arsenal Tech. The City championship game will be played Jan. 21 at 7:30, also at Tech.

About his team’s chances of winning the tournament for the third straight year, Delaney wrote in an email, “We had the goal of taking control of the City tournament when we came together three years ago because it had been a couple of years since Cathedral had won it. We know how good the other programs are in the City tournament, even though they may not all be 4A programs, (with) two State champions two years ago. We know that we are the school that all of the other schools and fan bases want to beat, so we must have the mentality of a champion.”

Because this is a tournament and not a regular season game, student IDs will not provide admission to any of the games, either at Cathedral or Tech. Students may buy tickets at the door for $3, Delaney said.

Other teams in the tournament include second-seeded Attucks as well as Arsenal Tech, Bishop Chatard, Cardinal Ritter, Covenant Christian, Heritage Christian, Herron, Howe, Manual, Scecina Memorial, Shortridge, Tindley and Washington.
