Cardinals advance to tourney final

(Continued)

Tony Vails scored 22 points and grabbed seven rebounds as the York Cardinals knocked off Norwich in the first game of the Cardinal Classic.

Donald Rodriguez added 15 points, including three 3-pointers, and six rebounds.

“This will be a completely different game,” Curle said of today’s contest with York. “They like to push the ball and are a very good passing team. They have kids who can shoot it and also can get to the rim.

“This will be a challenge for us. We will have to keep them in front of us one-on-one and help less from the perimeter. We can’t help too early and give up open perimeter shots.”

Evan Tullar tossed in 22 points and pulled down six rebounds for the Cadets. Jimmy Warden added 14 points and five boards
