Girls’ basketball: No. 1 St. John’s maintains its edge over No. 2 Bishop McNamara

Sophomore Azzi Fudd (shown in and earlier game) leads St. John's to victory over Bishop McNamara.
Sophomore Azzi Fudd (shown in and earlier game) leads St. John's to victory over Bishop McNamara.

Azzi Fudd emerged from the chaos of defensive pressure and burst into the frontcourt alone.

With her team leading No. 2 Bishop McNamara by four with under a minute left Saturday, a layup would seal the outcome and hand No. 1 St. John's another victory over the Mustangs.

McNamara, hungry for an upset, had pressured the Cadets all game. But now, in the final moments, the best player on the floor had no one near her as she streaked past the raucous student section and laid the ball in. 

St. John's would go on to win, 64-58, holding off McNamara in another tight meeting of the area's best teams. 

"I had confidence that we were going to keep our lead, but that layup was like: 'Yes, it's over. We got this,' " Fudd said.
