John D'Abruzzo profiles the Beaver Falls boys basketball team.
"At the beginning of this season, Javon Turner wasn't all that impressed with Beaver Falls' boys basketball team.
"I knew we needed to be better," said Turner, a senior guard. "We were just a basic team, but we worked hard in practice and started to get better and better.
"With each game, we started to see the improvements and wanted to keep getting better."
Those early-season adjustments helped propel Beaver Falls (22-2) back into the WPIAL semifinals as well as earning a berth into the PIAA Class AAA playoffs. The Tigers edged New Castle, 52-49, in the WPIAL Class AAA tournament Tuesday night at Geneva College."
