QUINCY — With Chaminade playing the third of nine games Saturday in the Quincy Shootout, freshman forward Jamison White wasn’t sure what to expect.

“I walked in and was like, ‘Wow, a lot of people here,’” White said.

The Red Devils and the freshman marksman gave the Blue Devil Gym crowd a reason to be there.

White, the son of former Georgetown standout and NBA player Jahidi White, buried four 3-pointers and scored 20 points while teammate Nilayan Daniels made six 3-pointers and scored 24 points in a 72-53 victory over Chicago Curie.

“I like how everyone was moving, cutting and looking up the whole time,” White said.

It’s how the Red Devils got off to such a strong start. Chaminade took advantage of three 3-pointers in the first quarter to build a 20-9 edge, and Daniels knocked down three treys in the second quarter as the lead reached 38-20.

“We’re really big on moving the ball and moving bodies,” Chaminade coach Frank Bennett II said. “When we did that, we were very good. We had a couple hockey assists where we had guys passing up good shots for great shots, and we happened to hit them, too.”

Jeremy Harrington Jr. led Curie with 12 points, while Chikasi Ofoma added 11 points.
