Marquette Catholic Blazers

Life has thrown a lot at Nate Flores.
BOURBON | The numbers speak for themselves. It’s simple Basketball 101. If you win the battle on the boards and win the turnover battle, you win the game — usually by a lot.
BOURBON | Following two quarters of the Class 1A Triton Regional semifinal between Marquette Catholic and Fort Wayne Blackhawk, it was all tied up.
