Ben Slepian had a night to remember to spark Salem's boys basketball team to an impressive 73-51 victory over Bishop Guertin and the No. 2 seed in next week's Division 1 tournament, which begins Tuesday. Slepian hit eight 3-pointers (one off the school record) and was 7 for 7 in the first half when he scored 27 of his game-high 32 points and outscored BG by himself. Jonny Klecan had six assists in the first half and 11 for the game for the Blue Devils (15-6).
"It was quite a performance," said Salem coach Rob McLaughlin of Slepian.
