Girls Basketball: Ringgold upset could tighten Section 4-AAA race

Written by Joe Koch on .

Elizabeth Forward enters tonight's game with visiting Ringgold with an overall record of 9-2, a Section 4-AAA record of 3-0 and the No. 4 ranking in the Post-Gazette's Class AAA girls basketball rankings.

That could give the Rams plenty of incentive heading into the game. With an overall record of 4-6 and a section mark of 2-2, a Ringgold victory could put the Rams in the playoff hunt.

It's not out of the question. Ringgold has the best defensive average in the section, giving up an average of 43 points a game. But the Rams also have the lowest scoring average in the section at 41.2 points per game. Elizabeth Forward is second in the section offensively at 55.5 points per game, and the Warriors are giving up 47.5 points per game.

Three teams -- Belle Vernon, West Mifflin and South Park -- are all tied for second place in the section at 2-1. Two of those teams -- South Park and West Mifflin -- meet at 7:30 p.m. today on the Titans' floor.
