Senior Colin Kenney took the reins Saturday afternoon as the Marquette Catholic boys’ basketball scoring leader following a 22-point performance versus Andrean.

Kenney, who went into halftime with 10 points, surpassed Ryan Fazekas’ previous mark of 1,562 points scored early in the third quarter with an all-too-familiar baseline floater that vaulted him into school history.

The Furman commit has made Blazer basketball must-see entertainment since 2016. Saturday, he dazzled with his usual athleticism and dazed with his court vision.

Andrean, which worked its way out of a 15-13 first-quarter hole, led 34-29 at halftime.

The 59ers went ahead for good following a third quarter that saw the visitors outscore the Blazers 17-9.

Kenney and junior Jake Tarnow spearheaded a fourth-period charge, guiding Marquette to within seven points with four minutes to play, but Andrean held off to hang on by a score of 69-55.

Saturday represented Kenney’s third 22-point outpouring in his last four tilts. He has scored 20 or more points in all but one game this season. Marquette’s new all-time scoring champion is averaging 27.8 points per game in his final campaign with the Blazers.

Marquette (8-4) continues its homestand Tuesday evening when it welcomes Washington Township to the Scholl Center. The Blazers and Senators are set to meet at 7 pm.
