Every year preseason predictions are always being made ranking the area's teams, players and sometimes coaches. With everyone's opinion about this year's high school basketball season, no wonder the fans are ready to see which player or players would be advancing to the college ranks as a highly recruited division one player. Julius Ingram would be one of many high school players that have a chance of making South Jersey proud of his accomplishments both on and off the court. In the Moorestown Invitational against West Windsor South, Ingram would help lead Bishop Eustace to a 65-43 victory and advance to the finals of this tournament.
The beginning of this game watched the shots from the perimeter come up short leaving both teams choosing to take the ball inside. The Crusaders would begin to dominate inside and were rewarded with a 32-14 halftime lead. Ingram began to aggressively drive hard to the basket with success to help open up the double digit lead. The second would be a chance for other bench players to get into the game. A total of ten Crusaders would score at least two points during the game. West Windsor would find success during the third quarter, but the Crusaders would maintain that lead they established during the first half. Julius Ingram finished the game with 23 points for Bishop Eustace and Kyle Miller added 14 points. West Windsor South was led by Matt Howell who dropped in 15 points.
