No. 9 Trenton Catholic proved yesterday in its 66-57 win over No. 7 Hudson Catholic that the Iron Mikes have top five potential. Led by volume scorer Myles Powell, jitterbug point guard Marcus Floyd, and McDonald’s All-American sharp shooter Malachi Richardson. At the core of it all is Richardson. Aside from sinking shot after shot via a quick release and picture perfect form, Richardson’s mere presence opens up driving lanes and open shots for other Trenton Catholic players.
