After going for 25 points when Ranney beat Roselle Catholic, 61-49, on Jan. 30, Antoine went for 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting and 5 rebounds in the rematch despite battling a right shoulder ailment that kept him on the bench for part of the game. Lewis finished with 8 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Senior guard Ahmadu Sarnor scored 15 points with 7 rebounds. “This is only 75 percent of what we want to do, win our third championship,” Lewis said, referring to county, state sectional and state titles. “Sunday we’re going to get a fourth one [in the TOC] and we’re determined to do so.” Ranney figures to be the No. 1 seed in the TOC and Antoine said the ultimate was to win the school’s first. “Yeah, it is,” Antoine said. The game was stopped for several minutes with Ranney leading 54-47 and 24 seconds left as Pierre-Louis lay on the floor with an apparent concussion. He appeared to suffer a seizure and was throwing up. Tournament organizers asked over the microphone for a doctor. He was eventually brought off the court on a stretcher and was apparently wearing a neck brace.
