Chaz Dazzles At Crotty Memorial Event

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story on Chaz Williams and the Bishop Ford victory ...

For the first 16 minutes of play, Bishop Ford struggled to find its offense. But when you have a creative guard like junior Chaz Williams, anything is possible for the second half. And Chaz didn't disappoint.

Williams scored 32 points to lead Bishop Ford past a tough Massapequa High School team, 60-54, in an event held at Hofstra to raise money for the charities that are involved with Tom Crotty's Hope through Hoops. Crotty passed away on September 11th during the tragic terrorist attacks.

Williams scored 15 points in the first half to keep Bishop Ford close in a 32-27 deficit.

The reasons why Bishop Ford trailed was because of Sean Hehir, the 6-foot-7 senior from Massapequa High School. Sean scored 16 of his team-high 24 points in the first half to help forge the advantage.

But Williams continued to zip past the Massapequa defense, opening up either passing lanes for his teammates or chances to drop in layups. He hit six key free throws in the final few minutes to help seal the victory.

Samuel Haigler was also a key player for Bishop Ford. He scored 14 points, including three three-pointers.

For the Chiefs in a losing cause, James Altadonna had a solid second half, scoring 11 points.

But in both halves, the Hofstra recruit Williams was simply terrific.
