Maura Buckley and her Arlington Catholic teammates huddled in front of their bench as the cramped gymnasium at Archbishop Williams shook with noise before tip-off. The senior captain shouted over the din.
“I don’t even remember what I said,” she said.
Whatever it was, it worked.
The 5-foot-10 small forward scored 20 points and pulled down six rebounds in a 64-43 win over the Bishops, moving Arlington Catholic’s record to 11-3.
Buckley was forced to miss her team’s first 10 games of the season while she recovered from knee surgery, making the Catholic Central rivalry game just her fourth of the season.
While the two-year captain could not play early in the season, she was a constant presence around the team, not missing a single practice or game.
