Ryan Riordan, on the Serra basketball team:
"While Serra Catholic was making fewer than 25 percent of its shots in the first half of a WPIAL Class A semifinal game Wednesday, coach Bill Creasy was kept calm by his son.
"[My son] said, 'Dad, the ball is going to go in eventually.' "
His son was right, as No. 2 Serra Catholic (23-2) outscored No. 3 North Catholic (15-10) by 19 points in the second half to rally for a 56-45 victory at Keystone Oaks.
The Eagles will play No. 1 Vincentian in the championship game at 11 a.m. Saturday at Palumbo Center."
