12. Carmichaels

I'd of probably dropped Springdale down below Sto & Summit.  Sto beat them by 22, plus they have losses to Bishop Canevin and St. Josephs

Summit beat Sto by 27 so I'd have them as the section leader.

Sto while only 6-5 had a 3 loss stretch to Ambridge, Quaker Valley, Cornell.

Here's my run at it after the 1st round of section play is completed.  I bumped Cal into the 5 seed over Sto-Rox to set up the bottom half of the bracket.  I supposed you could always switch them and have the same opponent. 

1.  OLSH
8.  South Side Beaver vs. 9.  Winchester Thurston
4.  Summit vs. 13. Shenango
5.  California vs. 12. Springdale
2.  Sewickley Academy
7.  Jeannette vs. 10. Riverview
3.  Serra Catholic
6.  Sto-Rox vs. 11. Chartiers-Houston

How many teams move on to States for 2A?  The WPIAL site is useless at this point.

I'm pretty sure it is 6.

It is:

6A - 5
5A - 6
4A - 5
3A - 7
2A - 6
1A - 6

Sto-Rox loses to Springdale 65-56.  We had 4 guys foul out and another had 4 fouls.  I don't want to cry home cooking but Springdale shot 50 free throws to our 6.

Here's my January 23rd update:


1. OLSH

8. Jeannette
9. Winchester-Thurston

4. Summit Academy
13. Brentwood

5. Sto-Rox
12. Shenango

2. Sewickley Academy

7. California
10. Springdale

3. Serra Catholic

6. South Side Beaver
11. Apollo-Ridge

I had

1 OLSH
8 Winchester Thurston vs. 9 Jeannette
4 Summit vs 13 Shenango
5 California vs. 12 Apollo-Ridge
2 Sewickley
7 Sto-Rox vs. 10 Brentwood
3 Serra Catholic
6 South Side Beaver vs. 11 Springdale

-  for the #4 slot, Summit & Cal have 1 game in common; Yough.  Summit won by 20, Cal lost by 3.  Not much to go with but i'll let the section title be the deciding nod as well.
-  Sto-Rox recent slide moved them to 7.   The only thing stopping me from dropping them further is the win over Winchester Thurston.
-  8/9 matchup seems the easiest to figure out.  We both had the same, just swap the teams.
-  From there it was about avoiding 1st round section rematches.  Shenango was an easy #13 with their record.  Apollo lost to Springdale so that made 12 & 11 simple.  Brentwood at 10 fell into perfect sense.

Tomorrow's bracket games really only include Section 1 with #4 Summit Academy at #7 Sto-Rox and #8 Winchester Thurston at #11 Springdale.  Riverview and Apollo-Ridge should come out with victories to really tighten the race for 4th place.  Theres a chance we may see 5 or 6 teams coming out of that section

Jeannette should be able to get off the 4 game losing streak with a home game against Bentworth.   Brentwood will look to avoid a season sweep at the hands of Carmichaels.

Sto beat Summit 83-58.  Lost by 30 last time to them and won by 25 this time. I have no idea what to make of anything

UPSET SPECIAL - Shenango 81, Sewickley 77

Summit has kids come and go depending on their sentence. Did they have a roster additions/subtrations since Sto played them the first time?

Not sure. I didnít go to the first game at Summit. Friday we beat them with good aggressive defense, fast break points, and rebounds. That plus shooting 55% from the field usually results in a nice win

Looks like Summit Academy at Serra was hustnadded for this upcoming Thursday night. Interesting bracket game.  Our section as a whole really needs a Summit win for some credibility
