Here are two games to keep an eye on this week.
Friday – New Castle at Seneca Valley, 7:30 p.m. – Seneca Valley (6-2) jumped to a 2-0 start in Class AAAA Section 3, before dropping a 55-49 decision at North Allegheny. Now the Raiders must face New Castle (9-0), which is 3-0 in the section and is one of the favorites to win the WPIAL title. New Castle averages 81.7 points per game.
Friday – Kittanning at Mars, 7:30 p.m. – This is an interesting matchup, to say the least. Kittanning (9-0) is a bit of an unknown. The Wildcats are one of eight unbeaten teams in the WPIAL, but their schedule hasn’t been all that impressive. Meanwhile, Mars (7-1) has already beaten Seneca Valley and Montour, and lost to Hampton on a last-second shot.
