Rollers heading over the mountain to visit old football rival Millersburg.  I see if the Roller boys and girls both win, they'll be playing back to back in the Giant Center in the finals.

In boys 6A  Hoping for a Wilson/Chambersburg final. Not sure Wilson will be healthy enough

That wouldn't make me mad. Heck I might even be able to make those games weather pending.

I can probably drive that far now with my new Forester.

You just might be right Ryan, but never count out Reading.

Myself, I would love to see Wilson Reading at the Santander

That would be another classic '75!

Roller, with all due respect,  your Rollers are a mess, offensive skills everywhere, but all one on one. Defensively a nightmare, gamble, gamble...could be the worst fundamental Roller team in a long time. Think they had 10 TOs in first qtr. against McD.  I realize you are young at spots but oh my.

Definitely not one of our better teams KingRice. Depends on which team shows up on any given night.

It will be Reading or Chambersburg I think  Before the season I liked Township but so inconsistent  The two reasons I want Chambersburg is 1) I will be watching Reading/Wilson on Wednesday and 2) I don't think Reading should be in a District Final in the city of Reading. A court they may play once or twice on before. Its tough adjusting to the Santander Arena(outside shooting)

Reading, Wilson, and BC all can have perceived home court advantage at the Santander. But really no different then the Giant in that you have the arena depth perception. Experience counts from here on.

75, but Rdg at the Santander would be a super home court advantage!  Even more than Hersey/Milton Hershey at the Giant Center.  The simple fact is the Santander only holds 7,000 +.  Reading fans travel well, so imagine the game being literally downtown.  I mean 90% of the kids live within 1 mile of the Santander.  The other team I'm sure will get an allocation of tickets, but the rest of the arena will be Reading fans. 

Not complaining about it, but it is an advantage either way you look at it. But Reading has to get there first...

Sw, you are correct about the home court advantage with the fans, but I was only thinking of the game itself. step 1 handled nicely tonight  8)

Wildcat I agree  You always had common sense   I guess if Reading goes to Chambersburg ( I don't agree with that either) and wins I can live with it  Post season should be a neutral court

In 4A the bracket is very one sided.  You have Bishop McDevitt and Berks catholic on one side.  Those are probably the best two team in the district.  The other side in my opinion is pretty wide open with any of the four being able to go to the title game.  SV/ST winner, Eastern York, Littlestown or lancaster catholic.
