Boys’ basketball notebook: Paul VI’s crazy week featured a major injury and a huge comeback

Paul VI boys' basketball had quite the week. On Monday, the team learned that senior combo guard Anthony Harris, a Virginia Tech commit, was lost for the season with an ACL injury. He's the second major player the Panthers have lost this season, following five-star junior Jeremy Roach, who also tore his ACL.

"The first thing it does is deflate," Coach Glenn Farello said of those injuries. "It's very deflating for the team because this is a brotherhood and these guys love each other."

But on Tuesday night, Paul VI perked up at the right time, pulling off the season's first great comeback. Trailing O'Connell by 22 points with four minutes left in the third quarter, the Panthers made a furious rally and picked up a 56-53 victory on the road.
