"A lot of people might have been surprised by the win," the 6-foot-5 swingman said. "But we just went out there playing like we were going to win."Landesberg had just four field goals, but finished with a game-high 26 points, going 17-of-19 from the foul line. His free throws with 4:42 left in the fourth quarter gave Holy Cross (9-1, 1-0 CHSAA AA) a 57-56 lead, its first since 16-15 late in the first quarter.Kayvon Roberts, who was saddled with early foul trouble, buried a three-pointer to open the third quarter and had 12 of his 15 points in the third, especially critical because Landesberg was held scoreless in the stanza."After the first shot I was feeling it," Roberts said. "So I just kept on going."While Christ the King's guards Malik Boothe (12 points) and Erving Walker (19 points) scored their points, Holy Cross's tandem of Blaise Ffrench, Shameel Carty and Roberts made them work for their shots.Andrew Gabriel scored 17 points and Sean Johnson added 11 for Christ the King (8-2, 2-1), which was hampered by Ryan Pearson fouling out with just 5 points midway through the fourth quarter. It was Holy Cross' first victory over Christ the King since a 77-60 win at Cross Dec. 23, 2003."I don't think you can make statements on Jan. 9," Gilvary said. "We may have opened some people's eyes tonight, but I don't think we were surprised."Reach reporter Dylan Butler by e-mail at news@timesledger.com or call 718-229-0300, Ext. 143.
