The Monessen boys basketball team, in just its second season in Section 5-AA after years of Class A dominance, can clinch an outright section championship tonight with a win at Washington. Monessen already has won a share of the title.
If the Greyhounds win, they can send a thank you note to Burgettstown, who upended the Prexies Friday night without point guard Sean Tunno.
Here's an interesting note on Monessen, whose only loss since Dec. 4 is to Upper St. Clair: the Greyhounds won their first three section games by a combined 10 points over Beth-Center, Chartiers-Houston and Burgettstown. Since, their closest section game was an eight-point win over the Bucs.
