When Paterson (N.J.) Catholic closed its doors last June due to financial struggles, it set in motion a mad scramble for all the talented players on the school’s basketball team.
The team’s two best returning players, point guards Myles Mack and Kyle Anderson, landed at St. Anthony under Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley.
Two other young Paterson Catholic standouts, Reggie Cameron and Kavon Stewart, took their talents to St. Anthony’s crosstown rival, Hudson Catholic.
