"The SFIC Basketball Festival will again host a number of the state's top high school basketball
teams," said Bill Fitzpatrick, the Director of the SFIC Basketball Festival. "Our festival will
offer exciting action for fans and support the Scholarship Fund's work to raise money for tuition
assistance so children from low income families can attend Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese
of Newark. With the enthusiastic support of the coaches and their schools we are able to create
the best spectacle of high school basketball in the state."
St. Anthony's High School (Boys) Basketball team and legendary Coach, Bob Hurley, will be
participating in the SFIC Basketball Festival for the 12th straight year. Coach Hurley,
enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, won his 1,000th
game and led his team to back-to-back undefeated seasons in 2010-11 and 2011-12.
