St. Rita Pulls Off Upset Over Marist in Regional Semi-Final

All season, St. Rita coach Gary DeCesare has asked senior Chris Williams to step up and take ownership of the team.

Williams did just that Wednesday night. The 6-foot-5 swingman scored a team-high 18 points, including 12 in a pivotal second half, to lead St. Rita to a 62-56 upset of Marist in a Class 4A Marian Catholic Regional semifinal.

The 12th-seeded Mustangs (13-18) will play fourth-seeded Marian Catholic at 7 p.m. Friday in the championship game.
