Catholic Conference Championship
These Dons were definitely the kings of the court as they roared to a 21-4 record (14-2 in conference), taking home Catholic Conference honors for the first time in a dozen years. Gary Sager’s 22-footer with just two ticks left copped the regional crown for Bosco with a 67-66 win over Marquette’s Hilltoppers. Led by senior guard Gary Grzesk, this squad made up for its lack of height with a fast-breaking style that opponents had trouble keeping up with. Grzesk was also named a First Team All-Conference selection. He went on to play at Marquette University for legendary coach Al McGuire. Playmaker Sager, Tom Mihm, Steve Lazewski, and hook shot artist Mark Scholz rounded out the starting five.
