The surprise Cokey Robertson received Tuesday night was one he neither wanted nor expected.
"They just completely intimidated our kids," said the St. Maria Goretti boys basketball coach after watching Towson Catholic's resounding 97-58 win in a Baltimore Catholic League game. "I thought we would do a better job."
The short-handed Gaels (9-12, 2-6) watched Towson reel off 15 unanswered points to open the contest and roll to the easy win.
"We don't have the luxury of a lot of depth," said Robertson. "We had a couple kids - starters - out tonight, but it wouldn't have mattered who was here."
