SFIC Basketball Festival has a Great History

T

he first Scholarship Fund for Inner-City Children (SFIC) Basketball Festival took place on January 4, 2004 at St. Peters College’s Yanitelli Center. When legendary coaches Kevin Boyle of St. Patrick’s and Bob Hurley of St. Anthony HS were the first to accept invites, area basketball fans were very excited about a new showcase on the high school calendar. The games came about because of the vision of SFIC Trustee Bill Fitzpatrick, who felt great high school basketball could benefit Inner-City children who wanted to receive a quality, valuebased education. The initial festival came just days after Coach Hurley had notched his 800th career victory in California. A packed house at Yanitelli welcomed home the Friars and they narrowly defeated a tough Ed Wicelinski-coached CBA team in a defensive classic. St. Anthony went on to an undefeated season and a Non-Public B and TOC title, the season becoming the subject of the book, ‘The Miracle of St. Anthony – A Season with Coach Bob Hurley and Basketball’s

Page 4

Most Improbable Dynasty. St. Pat’s, coming off a 2003 Tournament of Champion title, lost its first and only SFIC game to a veteran Seton Hall Prep team led by Andrew Pusar and Brandon Costner and coached by Bob Farrell. In the third game, Danny Hurley’s St. Benedict’s Prep team wowed the crowd with its above the rim game led by future NBA player J.R. Smith in an easy victory over Hudson Catholic. The SFIC Festival has showcased many future college and professional players such as Dan Werner, Alex Galindo, Corey Fisher, Jeff Robinson, Derek Mercer, Samardo Samuels, Derrick Caracter, Lance Thomas, Mike Rosario, Tyshawn Taylor, Jio Fontan, Dominick Cheek, Jordan Theodore, Dexter Strickland, Kyrie Irving, Ronald Roberts, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Myles Mack, among many others. Among numerous top individual performances, two stand out. In 2006, St. Anthony survived pesky CBA with a 40-37 win that ended with a missed Dan Werner 3-pointer at the final buzzer that would have sent the game into

overtime. Afterwards, Bob Hurley called Dan Werner’s 30-plus point, 10-plus rebound, multisteal effort one of the top high school performances he has ever witnessed. Werner went on to star at the University of Florida. In 2010 at Kean University, the Trenton Catholic/St. Patrick’s match-up resulted in a sell-out. After an even first quarter, the Dukecommit Kyrie Irving gave a remarkable performance, breaking the game open by halftime en route to a 24-point victory. For the live and TV audience, Irving’s exemplary allaround brilliance that day convinced them of the very bright future that awaits Kyrie who became New Jersey’s first-ever number one pick in last June’s NBA draft.

Sources of Funding

SFIC is funded by contributions from individual donors, corporations and foundations. SFIC sponsors two annual fund raising events – a dinner and a high school basketball tournament.

Why support Catholic Schools? The National Catholic Educational Association released a report (2010) indicating that: • Students who attend Catholic high schools are more likely to graduate and attend college than those attending other schools • Catholic high schools report a graduation rate of 99.1 percent, a higher rate than reported by other religious schools (97.7 percent), nonsectarian schools (95.7 percent) and public schools (73.2 percent) • According to Diane Ravitch, author of NY Times bestseller, ‘The Death and Life of the Great American Schools System’: - Catholic schools are particularly successful at serving lowincome black and Hispanic students. - They should serve as a model because they “never gave over to the obsession with standardized tests” and “never conceded their curriculum to progressive trends like whole language, constructivist math and relativistic history.” - Catholic school students were far more likely to take rigorous classes, graduate on time and attend college.
