Basketball: Pitt-Johnstown has a nice combo with Seton-LaSalle grads

Written by Bill Brink on .

Bill Brink profiles Seton-LaSalle graduates Dale Clancy and Levi Masua, who are now standout basketball players at Pitt-Johnstown.

"This wasn't the plan, not exactly anyway. Dale Clancy and Levi Masua didn't huddle up and pick a school. That's just how it went down.

They were close friends after their basketball career at Seton-LaSalle culminated in a WPIAL title and an appearance in the PIAA title game in 2014. They took their official visit together, too, but even then they made their decisions separately.

"It just kind of happened," Masua said of their decision to play for Pitt-Johnstown.

Two players from Class 2A (which was Seton-LaSalle's classification when Clancy and Masua won the WPIAL championship in 2014) going to the same competitive Division II school isn't all that common. Now both juniors, Clancy is the point guard for the team that was averaging the second-most assists per game in Division II and Masua has worked his way into a productive player off the bench."
