Basketball: Barons' Radosevich is 5-of-7 from 3-point range in private school all-star game

CLEARWATER — While a 3-point contest was held during the halftime of the Pinellas County Private School All-Star Game at Calvary Christian on Thursday, the contest itself became a long-distance shooting affair as both teams drained a combined 24 3-pointers.

St. Petersburg Catholic's Luke Radosevich went 5-for-7 from long range to score a game-high 22 to lead the home team, comprised of players from Admiral Farragut, Canterbury, Indian Rocks Christian and St. Petersburg Catholic, to a 92-60 win over the visiting team. The visiting team included players from Calvary, Clearwater Central Catholic, Oldsmar Christian and Lakeside Christian.

"This was probably the best I've ever played," Radosevich said. "It was a great experience to play with these guys for my last game. I'll always remember this."

Oldsmar Christian's Antonio Rodriguez led the visiting team with 15 points, and Calvary Christian's Tyler Daniel went 4-for-4 from behind the 3-point line to add 12.

Radosevich hit a 3-pointer to start the scoring and the home team never trailed as it opened up an 11-2 lead on the way to a 20-12 advantage at the end of the first quarter. After the home team went up 24-14 on a follow dunk by Admiral Farragut's Daniel Salomon, the visiting team went on a 12-3 run to close the gap to 27-26.

But the home team's lead continued to grow after it outscored the visiting team 16-3 to end the half for a 41-29 lead.

"It was a great way to end my high school career," said Salomon, who finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds. "It's amazing to think about where I was my sophomore year and after putting in all the hard work with (AFA coach Sylvio Brutus). I've been able to improve to a point where I could play in a game like this. I'm just grateful for all the people that helped me."

Salomon's teammate at Admiral Farragut, Chris Myrick, won the 3-point contest at halftime with 17 makes in a minute. He did not make a 3-pointer in the game, but finished with six points on 3-of-7 shooting.
