There were only three games last season when Irish point guard Andrew Crawford scored in double digits. But there were eight times when he went double digits in assists.
The true definition of a facilitator, it was never about Crawford, the head coach’s son. It was always about doing whatever it takes to win. All those things that don’t show up in a box score, like diving for loose balls, coming up with a steal at just the right time, hitting the front end of a 1-and-1 to extend a lead. Crawford was a master at all of those types of things.
And it’s no surprise Camden Catholic won 22 games last year and made it to the semifinals of both the Camden County and Non-Public A state tourneys. Crawford had an eye-popping 224 assists as a senior and helped solidify the Irish as one of the best teams in South Jersey.
