Boys Basketball: Fox Chapel prepares for big showdown with Penn Hills

Written by Brad Everett on .

It's been 10 years since Fox Chapel last won a section title.

The Foxes can take a giant step towards ending that drought Friday.

Fox Chapel (14-1) will try to avenge its only loss of the season when it hosts Penn Hills (14-1) in a Class 6A Section 3 showdown. It's safe to say Fox Chapel hasn't hosted a game of this magnitude in quite some time. No. 2-ranked Penn Hills leads the section with an 8-0 record and No. 3 Fox Chapel is second with a 7-1 mark. Latrobe is just behind the Foxes at 6-2.

Payback. That's what Fox Chapel is hoping to serve Penn Hills. This is a rematch of a game played Jan. 3 at Penn Hills. The Indians raced to an 18-point lead in the first half of that game. Fox Chapel rallied, but in the end fell short as Penn Hills grabbed a 62-59 win. Penn Hills got 17 points from Daivon Stephens and 16 from Sherron Schifino. Jake Livingston paced Fox Chapel with 24.
