Tri-State Sports & News Service writer Joe Koch profiles the Vincentian boys basketball team. Click here to read his story.
"For Vincentian Academy boys basketball coach George Yokitis, the most gratifying aspect of a season that has vaulted the Royals to the No. 4 spot in the statewide Class A rankings and a 13-0 record has been his team's work ethic.
Following Saturday's heart-stopping, 95-92 Section 2-A victory against Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic before a standing-room crowd at Avonworth High School and a 115-88 decision against Sewickley Academy Tuesday, the Royals' scoring average lifted to 94.8 points per game, while the Royals are surrendering 67.2 points per contest.
High school basketball games are 32 minutes in length, divided in four eight-minute quarters. If taken to the level of a college game, which has a length of 40 minutes over two 20-minute halves, the Royals' average is equivalent to 118 points a game. If the NBA length of 48 minutes were in place, Vincentian would be equal to an average of 142.2 points a game."
