Boys Basketball: Tappe pouring in the points for Aquinas Academy

Written by Brad Everett on .

It would be unfair to call Aquinas Academy a "one-man team," but the Crusaders do have a player who has accounted for half of the team's points.

Mike Tappe, a 5-9 junior guard, has poured in 21 points per game. The Crusaders have scored 472 points. Tappe has 237 of them.

Tappe's biggest outing came last week against Vincentian, when he went off for 39 points. That tied a school record, one Tappe set a season ago.

Tappe has been one of the few bright spots for Aquinas, which is 0-11. The Crusaders went 1-20 last season.
