Charleston Catholic led for all but the opening basket and cruised to an 83-to-40 win over Bishop Donahue today for its second straight boys Class Single-A basketball championship.

It was the largest margin of victory in a Single-A title game since the state moved to the three-class system in 1959. The previous mark was Bramwell's 37-point win over Bethany in 1967.

The Irish were solid on St. Patrick's Day, jumping to a 33-to-9 lead midway through the second quarter at the Charleston Civic Center.

Bishop Donahue couldn't keep up with Charleston Catholic's fast break, was constantly out-muscled for rebounds, and was held to its lowest point total of the season.

Bo King led second-seeded Charleston Catholic with 20 points and eleven rebounds. Graham Warren added 14 points and Joe Sassler had 12.

L-A Hampton had ten points for Bishop Donahue. The Bishops were in the championship game for the first time since losing to Burch in 1989.
