Boys Basketball: Fox Chapel wins thriller, claims share of section title

Written by Brad Everett on .

Fox Chapel went into Friday needing a win and some help to claim of the Class 6A Section 3 title.

The Foxes got both.

In a thriller, Fox Chapel rallied from 10 points down in the fourth quarter to win at Plum, 66-63, in overtime. But to win its first section title in 10 years, the Foxes needed Latrobe to beat Penn Hills. That happened, too. In another nail-biter, Latrobe topped Penn Hills, 76-75. Those outcomes created three co-champions. Fox Chapel, Latrobe and Penn Hills all finished with 12-2 records.

Carson Cohen had a big night for Fox Chapel. Cohen hit the tying 3-pointer to force overtime and then scored six of his game-high 28 points in the extra period. Jake Livingston and Ben Kelly added 18 points apiece.
