Malachi Richardson had just dropped 26 points in Trenton Catholic Academy’s comfortable victory Saturday night against Lakewood, but he allowed his mind to wander afterward to just about the only thing out of his control these days. On Wednesday, the 6-foot-7 Syracuse commit was selected to the McDonald’s All-American game. It was once in doubt for Richardson, who said he had suffered a knee injury before arriving at TCA as a freshman in 2011.

Tyus Battle made his much-anticipated return on Saturday night to help guide Gill St. Bernard’s past Ridge High School, 70-37.

Gill St. Bernard’s currently sit at 8-7 on the season, which is towards the bottom-half of the Skyland Conference Delaware Division.
