Mike White previews WPIAL Class A in boys' basketball:
Lincoln Park: The defending WPIAL champion Leopards no longer have Devontae Watson swatting shots in the middle. He is now at Temple University. But Lincoln Park still is a championship-caliber team and ranked No. 1 in Class A. Ryan Skovranko is a 6-6 junior who averaged 16 points a game last season. Senior forward Jaylyn Cottrill and sophomore guard Antonio Kellam also return while freshman Maverick Rowan is a player to watch.
Union: After the Scotties had one of the best football seasons at the school in the past decade, the basketball team might follow suit. All five starters return from last season. Senior forward Markel Peace averaged 14 points while junior guard Ben Young and senior Joe Salmen averaged 12. The other two returning starters from a 12-12 team are senior guard Drew Robinson and senior forward Tre Major.
OLSH: The Chargers have 6-2 senior guard Stefan Arch, who averaged 11 points and 7 rebounds a game last season. But they will also be bolstered by 6-3 junior guard Cameron Johnson, who transferred from Moon."
