It was business as usual this winter for Vincentian (24-4), which kept the scoreboard busy and racked up win after win. A fourth consecutive 20-win season came to an end last Friday when the Royals lost to WPIAL champion Lincoln Park, 99-64, in a PIAA Class A quarterfinal game. The Royals finished 24-4.
This team will likely most be remembered for a super-charged offense that poured in a whopping 90.5 points per game. Lincoln Park was the only other WPIAL team to average more than 75 a game. Vincentian broke the century mark five times, scoring 115 against Sewickley Academy, the most by any WPIAL team this season.
"We were as short as we've ever been, so we sort of thought before the year that we didn't want to get caught in half-court games," coach George Yokitis said. "We worked diligently on our transition game and our half-court trapping."
