Immanuel Quickley's breakthrough sophomore year was highlighted by clutch postseason performances that led the No. 2 Patriots (27-11) to the Baltimore Catholic League championship and a trip to the prestigious Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament title game.

The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 17.7 points, 3.9rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game, and was able to respond in some of the season's biggest moments.

His 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds left gave John Carroll a 51-50 win over Mount Saint Joseph for the BCL title, and then he sent the Patriots to the Alhambra final with a shot at the buzzer to beat Washington, D.C., power St.John's, 54-52.

He was named the BCL's co-Player of the Year and then chosen the tournament's Most Valuable Player. He also was named to Alhambra's second team.

"A couple times earlier in the season, he had a couple [potential] game-winning shots that didn't go, so it goes to show the importance of his willingness to do that and his confidence that grew in hitting those two game-winning shots. It's a testament to him sticking with it. He's the kind of kid that lives for those moments," John Carroll coach Tony Martin said.

After averaging 7.5 points as a freshman, Quickley has 911 career points, which puts him on pace to break alumnus Isaiah Philmore's career mark of 1,776.
