Joey Galvis scored 16 points, had four blocks and three steals to lead the Jesuit Tigers to a 79-58 win over American Heritage in the Class 5A state title game on Saturday morning.
Galvis also earned tournament MVP honors as the Tigers claimed their first state title in basketball since 1984.
"The thing that makes it so special is the group of seniors we have," Galvis said after the Tigers win. Galvis combined with fellow senior Jack Flemming for 10 three-pointers as Jesuit shot a scorching 54 percent from beyond the arc.
"Honestly, my biggest goal at Jesuit is that our teams always represent playing hard and playing together," Jesuit head coach Neal Goldman said. "But when you have a team this talented you do want to take it to the limit and we were able to do that with this group."
The win caps a dream season for the Tigers, one that saw them go undefeated against Florida competition, including beating 30 of 31 opponents by double digits.
