Bishop Canevin likely felt a little bit down last Friday night, this after a loss to Seton-LaSalle ruined what would have been a perfect record in section play.
Settling for one of the best regular seasons in school history wasn't a bad consolation prize, though.
For the second time in school history, Bishop Canevin can call itself a section champion. The Crusaders captured the Class AA Section 3 title with a 13-1 record. They finished one game ahead of Washington and two games ahead of Seton-LaSalle. The only other time the school has won a section title in boys basketball was in 2006. That season, the Crusaders advanced to the WPIAL Class AA title game and finished the season 26-5.
This season's team will enter the WPIAL playoffs with a 17-5 record. The Crusaders have won 10 of their last 12 games. Four of their losses have come by a combined six points.
