"We don't always win, but when we lose a basketball game, they're the most surprised people in the world. They play with a lot of confidence."
Of course, having two NCAA Division I recruits on the team - Louin (Villanova) and Monzo (Loyola of Maryland) - doesn't hurt, either.
The duo combined for 21 points in the first half and helped the Magic (18-1 overall, 12-1 league) establish a 29-14 advantage at the break.
"I shot the ball pretty well today," Louin said. "It's always good when your shots are going down like that."
The Panthers (16-3, 10-3) fared no better in the second half as Mount St. Joseph dominated with smooth transition play and a stifling defense that held all St. Basil scorers to single-digit point totals.
"We were very flat," Panthers coach Terry Mancini said. "I think what showed was the talent level of [Mount St. Joseph].
"We're a scrappy team, and they took away what we do well, which is to shoot the three-pointer. They played a great defensive game, and they didn't miss a shot. They played really well in our gym."
Both teams have games looming on Saturday, as Mount St. Joseph will visit St. Hubert and St. Basil will host Hallahan.
