Villanova men's basketball coach Jay Wright has seen the pride that one of his top recruits, Mount St. Joseph star Phil Booth, shows when it comes to playing basketball in the Baltimore Catholic League. "Phil knows it's not about him, it's about Mount St. Joseph and it's about the BCL," said Wright, the keynote speaker at the BCL Hall of Fame ceremony at Rolling Road Golf Club in Catonsville. "That's the message - cherish that and never forget where you came from. " Eight former BCL standouts won't soon forget after being honored as the newest members of the league's Hall of Fame on Thursday, a group that included former Maryland star and current assistant coach Juan Dixon.

Last year, Mount St. Joseph guard Kameron Williams opened eyes with a breakthrough sophomore season that earned him first-team All-Baltimore Catholic League honors. This season, he has done even more in leading the No. 5 Gaels (24-6) to a first-place finish in the BCL and the top seed in the upcoming playoffs. Averaging 18 points, four rebounds and two assists in his second year on varsity, the 6-foot-2 Williams was named the BCL Player of the Year at the league's annual banquet Monday night at Snyder's Restaurant in Linthicum.

Mount St. Joseph senior guard Jordan McNeil sank two free throws with less than one second left in the fourth quarter to tie Calvert Hall in an epic Baltimore Catholic League championship game Monday night at UMBC's RAC Arena. But McNeil was far from finished. With the No. 2 Gaels still needing points to separate themselves from the No. 4 Cardinals, who wouldn't budge all game, McNeil had an answer with the game tied for the final time. He nailed a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 13 seconds left in overtime and when Nico Clareth's 3-point try at the other end missed at the buzzer, Mount St. Joseph secured a third straight BCL championship with a classic 72-69 win over Calvert Hall.

The 42nd Baltimore Catholic League tournament opened Thursday night with an absolute stunner -- eighth-seeded Mount Carmel, who only won one league game in 14 during the regular season, claimed a 59-50 win at No. 1 and top-seeded St. Frances. It was the same St. Frances team that dominated the regular season -- going 13-1 in league play with its only hiccup a one-point loss to John Carroll in the final seconds. The same Panthers continued to separate themselves from the rest of the pack when they won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A championship on Sunday -- comfortably handling then-No.

It was late in the third quarter of Sunday's Baltimore Catholic League semifinal game when John Carroll coach Tony Martin barked from across the court, seeking out the attention of his senior captain, Malcolm McMillan. Mount St. Joseph was giving the No. 2 Patriots all they could handle, but McMillan, who earned BCL co-Player of the Year honors earlier in the week, provided a quick, reassuring nod. In the final quarter, he did even more, and his teammates followed his lead. McMillan scored seven of his team-high 21 points, added two blocks in a key late defensive possession and iced the game with two free throws with two seconds left to help John Carroll reach Tuesday night's BCL title game with a 56-52 win over No. 9 Mount St. Joseph at Loyola University.

Mount St. Joseph senior guard Jaylen Adams said he was a little nervous when the Gaels' big lead against St. Frances was cut to six points in the third quarter of Sunday's Baltimore Catholic League semifinal game. It didn't look like it. Adams responded with two free throws, a driving layup and then a 3-pointer - answering the Panthers with his own 7-1 run. He scored 22 of his game-high 28 points in the second half with six 3's as No. 2 Mount St. Joseph secured an 88-59 win over No. 8 St. Frances at UMBC's RAC Arena.

Of all the traits Mount St. Joseph senior guard Phil Booth has brought to the basketball court in his fourth varsity season, his consistency on offense and defense may stand out the most. He scores from everywhere, is a gifted passer and grabs big rebounds. He plays defense with the same skills, smarts and determination. Averaging 18 points, six rebounds and three assists a game, the Villanova-bound Booth was named the Baltimore Catholic League's Jerry Savage Player of the Year Monday night at Snyder's Willow Grove Restaurant in Linthicum.

Trailing by nine points to St. Frances after a jittery first half, the Calvert Hall boys basketball team didn't discuss strategy or adjustments at halftime. The message from the coaches was simple and direct: Go harder. The No. 2 Cardinals responded with a 15-3 run to open the third quarter and finished strong to pull away for a 69-62 home win over the No. 7 Panthers in the regular-season finale for both teams. The win ended a run of eight straight wins by St. Frances over Calvert Hall, dating back to the 2010-11 season.

A day after former St. Frances basketball star Devin Gray died of a heart attack in Atlanta, longtime Panthers coach William Wells talked about the 1991 Baltimore Catholic League Player of the Year's dedication to the sport. "When I first met Devin, he couldn't hold a ball. By the time he was a senior, I knew he could have been a pro," Wells said Sunday. "He had special talents from the 10th grade on because he could go up and get it. " Gray died in Atlanta on Saturday after suffering a heart attack, according to his cousin Zeke Marshall (St. Paul's)

The second-ranked John Carroll Patriots were frustrated heading into halftime Sunday at Mount St. Joseph. After leading most of the first half, the Patriots found themselves on the receiving end of two technical fouls and on the wrong end of a three-point game. After the half, they decided to get defensive. Real defensive. The visiting Patriots used a tight man-to-man defense — and the offense created off of the pressure — to turn their halftime deficit into a 63-47 win in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and Baltimore Catholic League game.

John Carroll's Malcolm McMillan and St. Frances' R.J. Williams share plenty of the same fine qualities on the basketball court. Both are senior point guards headed to Division I college programs, and both like the ball in their hands when their teams need something positive to happen. At the Baltimore Catholic League's awards banquet at Snyder's Restaurant on Monday night, the two standouts shared something else -- the podium, as they were named the co-BCL Players of the Year. McMillan, headed for Central Connecticut State, has led the No. 2 Patriots to a 29-2 mark this season that includes Sunday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship, a 70-58 win over No. 7 St. Frances.

There's no question that the No. 3 Mount St. Joseph boys basketball team has revolved around the All-Metro guard tandem of Kameron Williams and Phil Booth the past two seasons. But behind them has been a steady group of contributors. In Monday's 42nd Baltimore Catholic League championship game against No. 6 Archbishop Spalding, Mount St. Joseph's contributors stepped up in an even bigger way. Senior forward Charlie Jones, junior forward Kyle Doran and junior guard Jaylen Adams all made big baskets and other important plays.
