East boys’ basketball: Game of the Week (for week of Jan. 28, 2013)

Written by Cara De Carlo on .

Jeannette at Serra Catholic, January 29, 2013.

Flash back to January 4 when the Jayhawks (14-2, 7-1) hosted (and beat) the Eagles 77-62. The win was a triumphant one – Serra (12-3, 5-2) had been coming off of a nine-game unbeaten streak to start the season.

Nonetheless, the Jayhawks’ Damone Morton shot for 21 points in the January 4 win over Serra. Jordan Edmunds and Julian Batts added 14, and Seth Miller scored 13.

Serra, however, still had prolific shooters against Jeannette. Tyler Grebur shot for 17 points for the Eagles, and George Prota had 15. Max Kaminsky had 13 points and Joe Satira had 11.

Tonight’s rematch is a Section 3-AA game, and this time Serra is hosting. The Eagles will be motivated to take section wins from Jeannette as playoffs approach. Jeannette will be motivated to further secure its place in Section 3-AA. It’s the time of year when good teams vye for their seed.

Following tonight, Jeannette will play West Mifflin on Thursday. Serra will play at Springdale tomorrow night.
