But it wasn’t enough.

The Battling Bishops got the lead down to 3 late in the 4th quarter but couldn’t complete the miracle story as they fell 62-55.

Keenan sophomore guard MiLaysia Fulwiley was the difference scoring 29 points.

“Hats off to Keenan, they’re a really good team.” Bishop England head coach Paul Runey said. “We just dug ourselves too much of a hole early. I thought the girls really gave a fantastic effort. We were able to cut it down to three, but stopping Fulwiley just was next to impossible tonight. She’s a difference maker.”

Lily Woods had 21 points to lead BE while Ally Dominiak had 18.
