I'm sure Goretti and St. Francis feeling the effects of the game Tuesday.  Good bit of road time for both teams in the last couple days. Due to prior commitments, I will be unable to attend tonight's game in Chambersburg. I always try to see any state playoff games when they are in C-burg. Have a hunch Yepper will be in the area tonight.

Day 3 Championship Day

forget the bracket other than the championship game. coaches got together Fri. evening and reshuffled in order to avoid playing a team they may have already played 3-4-5 times. makes sense.

Game 1   St. John's - Mt. St. Joe's won by St. John's 75 - 62 despite 36 points from L.S.U. bound James Bishop. Casey Morsell (U.Va.) had 27 for St. John's.

Game 2  St. Francis 72 Gonzaga 67. St.  Francis best played Baldwin hurt in celebration following his last second game winning shot in the BCL tournament. Still got 24 from Ra Ra Jones & 19 from Jamal West. Gonzaga 3 point shooting deserted them going about 3 for 15. Anwar Gill with 19.

Game 3  Bishop Walsh - Maria Goretti   Walsh has acquired a large local following with their new coach and 11 transfers. It showed tonight with perhaps 3,000 vocal fans packing the place. Coach of a local public team told me that he didn't mind getting beat (badly) earlier in the year as they packed the place and made a ton of $$$. Walsh running ahead all game, 1Q 21 - 12, 2Q 35-28, 3Q 47-37. Fourth quarter different. Goretti comes from 10 down to win 59-55. Big # Tsimbila (Penn State) scores 20 and #23 Blackney come alive late to score  14. Nkamhoua #3 led Walsh with 24.

Championship game DeMatha - Paul VI   Two very familiar foes. Paul lost perhaps it's best player (Roach) preseason and another good one early on in the year. Led by 6 at half but DeMatha with a 13 - 2 run to start 3Q. DeMatha wins 60 - 51. I believe that's their 29 title in 59 years, all of which they didn't participate in. Justin Moore (Nova)with 24. He made some formidable contested 3 point shots at the end of the game to seal the win. For Paul freshman little man #11 McDaniel had 18. He's not Muggsy Bogues yet but he may be the best little man to come out of the WCAC since Chris Lykes from Gonzaga a few years back.

Another nice thing was watching a lot of quality players playing their last high school game. Coaches subbing them out at the end to a well deserved round of applause. When Moore from DeMatha subbed out Coach Farello from Paul met him on the way and game him a well deserved hug. Quality players, quality coaches and an all around quality event.

How is the 7-footer from DeMatha looking this year?

I believe he's only a Jr.

can shoot the 3, good touch around the basket, on O and D.

doesn't have any crazy moves, just a very good solid player.
