The official article:




"Wildwood Catholic (21-8) will play national power St. Patrick's of Elizabeth for the state title on Saturday at Ritacco Center in Toms River."



How he performs in this game will go a long way to showing us what he will be capable of.

Something tells me that St. Patrick's scouting reports will tell them to focus on Raffa, so yes, it should be interesting to see the result.


As for the game, it should be almost a foregone conclusion that Raffa's team will be a major underdog, but I guess that is why they play the games.

Slightly off-topic with all of the excitement surrounding the current players for the UAlbany basketball team, but Raffa's team lost to national powerhouse St. Patrick's on Sunday. Raffa managed to score 27 points, keeping his season average above 30ppg.





It will be fun to watch how this team responds to a new crop of players next year.
