Perhaps it's a measure of Camden's progress that Byrd can find faults in a victory over an 11-4 Bishop Eustace team that had won four in a row, and 10 of 11.
Paul VI and Camden Catholic couldn't beat the Crusaders on their home court. Camden found a way.
"This is a huge win for us," said Camden junior guard Tavaris Headen, who sparked his team with 20 points, including five in a flurry in the final eight seconds of the third quarter. "This can get us on a run, and we need to stay on a run."
That's what happened last season. Camden was 2-5 at one point and 8-9 on Feb. 1. But the Panthers got healthy and hot and won the South Jersey Group 3 title.
Byrd could see it happening again. Camden was 4-4 at the start of the new year and 7-6 at the start of this week.
But after beating Cherry Hill West and Bishop Eustace on consecutive afternoons, the Panthers are 9-6 and thinking big.
"We're finally healthy," said Byrd, who thinks his team likely will be the No. 4 seed in the South Jersey Group 3 tournament. "No more flu bug. No more [injured] ankles and legs. We can establish a starting five and a rotation, and see where we can go from there.
"I like where we're at. That [Bishop Eustace] is a very good team. To come in here and beat them on their court, I like what that says about us."
