Boys' Basketball: South Weekly Watch

Written by Brad Everett on .

Here are some of the top games of the week.

Tuesday – Chartiers Valley at Montour, 7:30 p.m. – When was the last time a WPIAL team scored 100 points in back-to-back games, let alone the entire season? Well, Class AAA No. 2 Chartiers Valley recently did it against Keystone Oaks (100 points) and Waynesburg (104). The Colts, who average 76.4 points per game, defeated Montour, 75-62, on Jan. 4 behind Spencer Casson’s triple-double. Montour has won five games in a row and needs this one to stay alive in the Section 5 title race.

Tuesday – Jeannette at Serra Catholic, 7:30 p.m. – The only blemishes on Serra’s section record are defeats at Jeannette and Greensburg Central Catholic. The Eagles get a chance for payback against both teams at home, where they are 19-1. Jeannette’s Damone Morton scored 21 points to lead his team to the win in the first meeting. Jeannette, ranked No. 4 in Class AA, has just one loss in Section 2, putting the Jayhawks behind only first-place Greensburg Central Catholic.
