Call him Cool Hand Schadrac. The Trinity Catholic boys basketball roster lists Schadrac Casimir as a 5-foot-8 sophomore. But the point guard's heart, guts and character proved to be as big as all outdoors Tuesday night. Casimir picked the best evening to send a game into overtime, draining a 3-pointer with 7.7 seconds left in regulation while calmly sinking 13 of 15 free throws in the second half and overtime. It all added up to yet another magnificent victory for Trinity Catholic, 62-59 in overtime over No. 3 Notre Dame of Fairfield in the Class M semifinals before a raucous, overflow crowd at Masuk's David Strong gym. And, by the way, Casimir performed all these heroics after being sick at halftime.It all means that No. 18 Trinity Catholic will have to make one more long bus ride this 2010-11 season. However, the Crusaders won't mind because the destination is Mohegan Sun Arena, where they will battle No. 1 Career Magnet (23-1) for the Class M boys basketball title on Saturday morning at 11:30 a.m. It has been an improbable journey for Trinity Catholic (16-9), which won all four Class M clashes on the road to reach the promised land of the state final. Notre Dame (23-4), the SWC regular season and tournament champion, roared out to a 35-26 halftime advantage behind 18 points and a trio of 3-pointers from sophomore Daniel Upchurch. Trinity Catholic's defense identified Upchurch's No. 11 jersey at intermission and went to work in the third quarter. Trinity held Upchurch scoreless, fashioning a 14-2 surge and ultimately led 43-42 going to the fourth quarter. Upchurch finished with a team-high 24 points including five 3-pointers. Aaron Spence (eight points) was also a force on the boards after Pascal's 2 \u00bd minute stint as Trinity began limiting ND-Fairfield to one shot each trip. "Trinity stole the tempo from us in the second half," Notre Dame head coach Vin Laczkoski said. The fourth quarter seesawed at the crowd's heartstrings. Miles made one of two free throws with 21.4 seconds left, giving Trinity Catholic one chance to tie. Trinity's lone senior Jonathan Boykin (nine points) penetrated the lane and drawing a host of Lancers to him, leaving Casimir open on the right side of the arc for the 3-pointer and 53-53. The battle continued in overtime. Kevin Lemeune (eight points) put in an offensive rebound for 57-56. And Casimir took care of the rest, nailing seven of eight free throws for 62-59 Trinity lead with 9.5 seconds left. Upchurch fought through a tenacious double-team at the top of the arc but his attempt missed. Earl Coleman added 12 points while Tre McPherson chipped in 10 for Notre Dame. "We missed free throws (8 of 15 compared to 19 of 25 for Trinity). It came back to hurt us," said Laczkoski, whose Lancers almost lost possession in the final 11 seconds of overtime when a screener was pushed out-of-bounds on the baseline. "Give Trinity and Casimir credit for making the big shots and the big plays. "We had a great, great season. We won 10 straight games before tonight," Laczkoski continued. "I told the kids they can't hang their heads after a season like this. We fought like warriors but sometimes the knights in shining armor don't win."
