Mike White's Xtra Points (Feb. 15, 2013)

"NA plays trifectas often" - by Mike White.

"These aren't the Tigers on Noah's Ark. They are the Tigers who live behind the arc.

The North Allegheny Tigers boys basketball team has a penchant for the 3-point shot like few WPIAL teams have had in the past decade. But it's not just that these Tigers shoot a lot of 3-pointers. They make a lot.

North Allegheny heads into the WPIAL playoffs averaging 10.2 3-pointers a game. The Tigers average 30 3-point attempts per game, which means they make 34 percent.

If you listen to North Allegheny coach Dave DeGregorio, he didn't intend for his team to shoot so many 3-pointers this season."
