Second straight setback for Montini
Dec 30, 2014 10:29 PM - Losses don't happen very often to the Montini girls basketball program. Consecutive losses never occur, even against strong competition. The Broncos certainly had their chances to pull out Tuesday's third-place game of the sixth annual Montini Christmas Tournament, but instead the defending Class 3A state champions suffered the sting of a 60-55 overtime loss to Marian Catholic. Coupled with Monday's 58-42 semifinal loss to Benet, it's the first time Montini (13-3) has lost back-to-back games since 2004. Marian Catholic (12-2) was third in Class 4A last year after winning the 2012 4A state title.
