Junior guard Robbie Anderson scored a game-high 23 points and was named MVP of the Holy Angels Basketball Classic after leading Charlotte Catholic to an 80-53 win over Marvin Ridge in the championship game on Saturday night.

The Cougars led just 18-16 after the first quarter and 34-28 at halftime before dominating the second half.

Anderson and Pollack were joined by teammate David Belfied on the all-tournament team.
Senior wing Taylor Neal had 13 points and 10 rebounds for Marvin Ridge, senior forward David Kelcy contributed 14 points and five rebounds for the Mavericks. Junior forward Jon Emezie was also productive with eight points, nine boards, five assists and three blocks, and senior guard Logan Jackson scored nine.
Neal and Emezie were named all-tournament, and so was Porter Ridge senior wing Dallas Austin.
Catholic, which improved to 7-2, reached the finals by beating Queen’s Grant in the first round (63-57) and Porter Ridge (69-46) in the semifinal.
Marvin Ridge (6-5) downed Forsyth Country Day (52-44) in the opening round on Thursday, and edged Charlotte Latin (56-53) in the semis.
