Drew Karpen profiles the West Mifflin boys basketball team.
"High school basketball teams across the WPIAL are starting to form their identities after the first two weeks of the season, including some interesting matchups in tipoff tournaments.
"I thought we did a decent job of implementing what we want," West Mifflin coach Lance Maha said. "We are trying to play up-tempo. We definitely have a long way to go. Hopefully with a week of practice, we will continue to get better next week."
Record-wise, the Titans couldn't have asked for a better start after going 2-0 in the Serra Catholic tournament. West Mifflin won its first game against Shady Side Academy, 74-63, before defeating East Allegheny, 74-39, the second night of competition in the predetermined format.
"For us it benefits us that you play a game and then you talk about your mistakes and get back at it the next day," said Maha, who is in his 17th season as the Titans coach. "We played better the second day.""
