Fisher Sparkles In St. Patrick Victory

Reporter Brian Towey details a big effort by Corey Fisher and the St. Patrick basketball program ...

Providing a crucial second half spark, Corey Fisher willed St Patrick's to a dramatic 49-46 win over Norcross High School of Georgia at the Academy National Invitational in Houston, Texas on Friday.

Fisher (21 points, six assists) wanted the ball with the game on the line, and delivered in the clutch. With :17 seconds to play, Fisher set up teammate Jeff Robinson for the game-deciding three-pointer, driving and kicking to Robinson (23 points) for the shot that would provide the difference.

Fisher's playmaking, perimeter shooting, and ability to improvise and break down defenders helped push St. Pat's to the win.

A pair of three-pointers by Fisher and a lefthanded floater along the baseline had pushed St. Patrick's lead to 42-29 with 7:03 to play in the fourth quarter before it withered away in the final minutes.

Fisher proved very difficult to contain off of the bounce, showing the body control and superlative finishing ability that are his trademark.

Corey has already committed to Villanova and will play for Jay Wright's basketball program starting next season. He is considered among the best players in the country.
