Cardinal Newman, RVX grab high seeds

Rincon Valley Christian's Zacchaeus Dance goes up for a shot as St. Vincent de Paul's Zach Pierson defends on Feb. 8. Rincon Valley Christian is the top seed in the Division 6 bracket in the North Coast Section tournament

Cardinal Newman, the best boys basketball team in the Redwood Empire, was assigned the No. 2 seed in Division 4 of the North Coast Section Tournament and will begin play Wednesday night hosting No. 15 Cloverdale.

"No complaints from me," quipped coach Tom Bonfigli after the pairings were announced Sunday. "I penciled in a bracket beforehand and it was nearly the same as what NCS came up with.

"Once the tourney begins, the numbers don't mean a thing. You have to play hard every game because there are no second chances.

"In a single-elimination tournament, you can't overlook anyone."
