I'm thinking about catching the LD-Chambersburg game Wednesday.  Should be a good game and with the C-burg people having to drive 50 miles, should be easier to get a seat than the Trinity-Northern game.

Trinity is a different team without the kid they call Chance (bad knee). They're very vulnerable as evidenced by the Rollers taking them to OT.
Northern losing to them by only 2 points is also evidence.

Agree Steamers.  He was their freshman superstar and the entire offense ran through him.  Without him, I doubt they'll be able to stay with Chambersburg tonight.

According to box scores on Pennlive Chance Westry did play against Northern scoring 9 points. So I can't say he is playing tonight because I did see him get hurt against Steel High and did not play in the second half of that game. Rumor has it he will be moving on to a prep school next year or year after. He is the real deal for a freshman.

How does Chambersburg look overall this year? They are coming in at #2 seed in the Lower half of bracket with Reading and I have not seen them play.

'75 DownRiver and I were just talking about your game with Chambersburg. It's always tough to play down there. For some reason even their worst teams can give you fits.
You might be able to get some info from their local newspaper... https://www.publicopiniononline.com/

They're good 75 and they present matchup nightmares.  They have a 6-9 kid named Collier that can handle the ball and actually play the point.  They rotate him to the top of the key and if a big guy follows him, he takes him to the basket.  If they don't he stays out there and bombs 3's.   If Reading plays them, they'd be wise to put one of their athletic big men on him and try to limit his production.  If you try to double team him, C-burg has guys cutting all over the place and the kid is a good passer.

Trinity won 47-38.  All the bigs on both teams were in foul trouble 3 minutes into the game.  The game ended up basically guards against guards.  The few, and I mean few-minutes Chambersburg had their 3 big guys in they dominated.  Unfortunately, the foul trouble screwed it up for both teams.  Trinity had one run late and put it away.

If a team has their big(s) in foul trouble so early (even if the first half is over) their opponent should take the ball right to them and try to get them fouled out or at least in deeper foul trouble.
