John D'Abruzzo profiles the Sewickley Academy boys basketball team.
"This high school basketball season presented a bit of a challenge for the Sewickley Academy boys basketball team.
Besides moving into a new section within Class A, the Panthers also had to look toward a lot of different players after losing a veteran presence from last year.
"We graduated a really strong class last year with eight seniors who played major minutes," longtime coach Win Palmer said. "We brought only a few guys back this year who had some game experience, so our expectations were that we were going to have to make a lot of adjustments and let our guys get their feet wet."
Palmer's group actually dived head first into its schedule this season. The Panthers entered the holiday break with a 6-0 overall record and appeared to be an early season threat in Section 1-A after winning their first two section games."
