Tri-State Sports & News Service writer Joe Koch profiles North Catholic basketball standout Dom Robb. Click here to read his story.
"Halfway through this past Friday's WPIAL Class A first-round game against Winchester Thurston, Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic boys basketball coach Dave Long realized something was quite wrong with his team's offensive approach.
"Winchester Thurton was still in the game, but Dom hadn't shown up for the first half," said the veteran Trojans coach.
He was referring, of course, to Dom Robb, his 6-foot-6 senior center.
His tone and the team's effort quickly changed, though, as Robb scored all 13 of his points in the second half as the Trojans turned a 14-point halftime lead into an easy 75-45 victory and a berth in Friday's quarterfinals against Our Lady of the Sacred Heart at 8 p.m. at Cornell High School."
