Here are a few games to keep an eye on this week:
Tuesday – Mt. Lebanon at North Allegheny, 7:30 p.m. – A solid non-section game before each team begins section play Friday. North Allegheny (2-0) averaged 85.5 points per game in beating two non-WPIAL teams (La Salle College High School and Norristown) at the State College tournament. Senior David Haus scored 22 against La Salle. Mt. Lebanon's Jonny David posted one of the top individual efforts of the opening weekend by scoring 42 points against Johnstown. The Blue Devils (1-1) beat Johnstown, but lost the following night to Central Catholic.
Friday – North Hills at Hampton, 7:30 p.m. – Few would have thought North Hills (2-1) would be one of the highest scoring teams in the WPIAL after the opening weekend, but the Indians were after scoring 84 and 85 points in their first two games. Sophomore Shawndale Jones got off to a hot start, averaging 26 points over the first two games. However, the Indians were hammered by Fox Chapel, 101-71, on Monday. Class AAAA No. 2 Hampton (2-0) is the favorite in this Section 3 opener. The Talbots are coming off a pair of wins in the Penn-Trafford tournament, with senior Ryan Luther scoring 17 and 30 points.
