Although the Catholic Youth Organization season has ended for them, the St. Helen’s Bantam girls’ basketball team had the opportunity to play at half time during an NCAA women’s playoff game between the Dayton Flyers and Kentucky Wildcats at Carnesca Arena at St. John’s University on March 26.

The girls scrimmaged for eight minutes on the court after tip-off, which was tossed by the Wildcats’ mascot.

The girls from St. Helen had originally been scheduled to play at a half-time game at the arena on Nov. 3, but that was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy and they finally got their chance to hit the court in March.

Gathering after the game here are Lizzie Cotov, standing left, Nicole Russo, Sabrina Vitale, Caitlin Miller, Grace Sinclair and Jessica Spiteri; and kneeling are Abigal Sinclair, left, Megan Kessler, Gia D’Andrea and Bianca Parrinello.
