Camden Catholic coach Matt Crawford says Courtney Cubbage has "it."
In this case, "it" was Cubbage's unique ability to raise his play at key moments, especially in big games.
The 6-foot-1 Cubbage's season averages of 16.9 points and 7.7 rebounds only hint at his impact for the Irish. He was the team's go-to player at both ends of the floor during a 25-4 season that included a perfect 8-0 mark in the Olympic Conference National Division.
Cubbage scored the winning basket in an overtime victory over South Jersey Group 3 champion Winslow Township. He made a buzzer-beater in a two-point win over South Jersey Group 2 champion Camden.
And in the Non-Public South A state tournament, Cubbage picked up his level of play in the final games of his career, averaging 20.6 points and leading the Irish to the sectional semifinals.
