PARMA, Ohio — In an early-season showdown between North Coast League unbeatens, Holy Name turned to senior forward Brad Karn right from the start. And he did not disappoint.
Karn scored a game-high 29 points Tuesday despite playing with four fouls in leading the Green Wave to a 56-41 win against Walsh Jesuit.
Karn’s versatility in the paint proved too much for the Warriors, beating their defense with jumpers, layups and a couple of dunks to give Holy Name its third straight win to open the season.
“I can shoot it pretty well,” Karn said. “I used to be a three-point shooter, but recently I’ve been closer to the hoop. And my shot has been better.”
Karn scored 13 of his 29 points in the first quarter. The Green Wave (3-0) led from the start and never trailed due in large part to a stifling half-court defense. The Warriors (2-1), ranked No. 21 in the cleveland.com Top 25 poll, were limited to just 16 first-half points and committed 23 turnovers.
“What we try to do is mix up our defenses,” Holy Name coach Jeff Huber said. “They have some very skilled players. (Sophomore Mitch) Peterson is going to be a heck of a player. So I thought maybe if we could keep changing up some different zone looks, some press, some man, that we would be able to take them out of some rhythm. And I think for the most part we were able to do that.”
The Green Wave has started strong in each of its three wins. Although the 56 points was a season low for Holy Name, Huber said the starts have been critical.
“I hope that we can maintain that, especially against a good team like this because they’re so talented that if they get rolling, things can snowball against you,” Huber said. “So we gave ourselves a little cushion from the start, and we were able to sustain it the rest of the way.”
Holy Name led 27-16 at halftime, and Walsh Jesuit only got within nine points of the Green Wave the rest of the way.
“We were outplayed, outcoached,” Walsh Jesuit coach John Norris said. “Just overall, a very good team in Holy Name played much better than we did. They were able to do what they wanted to do and execute what they wanted to execute. And we were not.”
Lawrynce Johnson added 10 points, including a pair of three-pointers, to join Karn as the only Holy Name players in double figures. But the night belonged to Karn, who battled foul trouble for most of the night and still played well enough to lead his team.
“He’s so active and he’s so athletic,” Huber said. “He’s a really hard guy to guard because he can step out and shoot the ball. He can put the ball on the floor. He gets offensive rebounds. He gets fast break points. So he’s a really tough matchup for other people, and a kid who’s gotten so much better from year to year.”
Peterson led Walsh Jesuit with 11 points.

Can Police Search Your Cell Phone? UVA Law Students Tackle Emerging Legal Questions with Independent Study Projects
By Brian McNeill | University of Virginia School of Law
University of Virginia law student Aaron Gober-Sims is working on an independent research project that will result in a paper, “From Cigarette Cartons to Cell Phones: Technology Continues to Advance, but the Search Incident to Arrest Doctrine Remains Dormant.”
Third-year University of Virginia law student Aaron Gober-Sims was surprised to read in a newspaper not long ago that police officers might have the authority to search the cell phone of anyone they arrest — without the need for a warrant or justification.
“I was like, ‘Wow, that doesn’t sound right,’” Gober-Sims said. “Cell phones often contain an infinite amount of personal information, and I imagine that most citizens would be surprised to learn that being arrested allows police officers to search through their cell phones without a warrant.”
Gober-Sims decided to take a closer look at the topic through an independent research project under the supervision of Professor Anne Coughlin, which will culminate in a paper, “From Cigarette Cartons to Cell Phones: Technology Continues to Advance, but the Search Incident to Arrest Doctrine Remains Dormant.”
In the paper, Gober-Sims examines whether the “search incident to arrest doctrine” — which allows police officers to perform a warrantless search of the arrestee, the area immediately around the arrestee, and any items found on the arrestee — should apply to an arrestee’s cell phone.
Gober-Sims’ effort is one of a number of independent research projects undertaken by UVA Law students each year, providing them with an opportunity to explore a cutting-edge legal topic with real-world implications, often resulting in a published article.
“Our independent study program allows students to work side by side with professors on a detailed topic of personal interest,” said UVA Law Vice Dean George Geis. “It is a wonderful way to customize your legal education while also building close professional relationships with the UVA faculty.”
Independent research projects at UVA Law involve a substantial amount of research under the supervision of faculty members and are available to second- and third-year law students. Students may earn one, two or three credits for their projects, depending on the length of the paper produced.
In the process of working on his paper, Gober-Sims found that the question over cell phone searches has split the circuit courts and two appeals are pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.
“State and federal courts dealing with this issue are applying different rationales and reaching different conclusions, which is at odds with the Supreme Court’s history of creating bright-line rules in the context of the Fourth Amendment,” Gober-Sims said.
Some courts, he said, have held that U.S. v. Robinson allows cell phones to be searched, without further justification, as long as the cell phone is taken from the arrestee’s person.
Other courts, even after considering Robinson, require police to show that the search was necessary to preserve evidence or protect officers because Robinson, which dealt with the searching of a crumpled-up cigarette carton found on the arrestee, cannot be applied to searching cell phones, he said.
Yet another court went further and held that cell phones can never be searched without a warrant under the search incident to arrest doctrine because it ruled that the government can never show an adequate justification for officer safety or evidence preservation.
In his paper, Gober-Sims concludes that police officers should have to justify warrantless cell phone searches under a theory of officer safety or evidence preservation, as the Supreme Court has recently reaffirmed the need for officers to meet one of these rationales. This justification might be hard to formulate, he said, which would protect the rights of people who are arrested.
“First, searching the data of a cell phone can never be justified under a theory of officer safety,” Gober-Sims said. “Second, when police officers search a cell phone after a lawful arrest, they are often searching for evidence, not preserving it.”
