"Nick Aloi didn't play basketball this season because of a knee injury. The WPIAL has said Aloi can't play next season, either, because he allegedly transferred schools for athletic reasons.

Aloi, a talented player who averaged 15 points a game as a freshman in the 2012-13 season, transferred on Jan. 21 from Ellwood City High School to Lincoln Park, a charter school in Beaver County that has become a basketball power. The WPIAL Board of Control had a hearing Wednesday with Aloi, his parents and administrators and coaches from both schools.

The WPIAL then voted, 16-0, to make Aloi ineligible for one year from the date of the hearing. Transferring for athletic reasons is against WPIAL and PIAA rules."
