Ryan Wolf has played a key role in Vincentian's success the past few years, leading the Royals in scoring each of the last three seasons. What's great for the Royals is that Wolf has produced some of his biggest scoring performances of this season over the past few games.
Wolf, a senior guard, has guided Vincentian to the semifinals for the fifth year in a row. The No. 3 seeded Royals (16-8) play No. 2 Monessen (18-6) tonight at Baldwin.
Wolf – who averages 18.4 points a game – scored 29 points in an 87-73 win against Cornell in the quarterfinals. Two games earlier, he scored 30 in the regular-season finale against rival Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic. Those represented two of Wolf's three highest scoring outputs of the season.
There's a good chance Wolf will have another big scoring effort tonight, as there should be plenty of points scored in the game. Vincentian leads Class A and the WPIAL in scoring with 84.3 points per game. Monessen is second in Class A with 76.7 points a game.
