The local basketball scene is down to one - the Bentworth boys. Congratulations to the Bearcats on advancing to the PIAA Class A quarterfinals for the first time in school history.
Now, Bentworth faces the unenviable task of playing mighty Serra Catholic Friday night at Chartiers Valley. Serra Catholic, the state's top-ranked team in Class A according to the Harrisburg Patriot-News, already beat Bentworth twice this year. The two play in Section 3.
The Varsity Letters went 2-2 with its second-round picks and is now 9-2 in the state playoffs. None of the previous 11 picks will be as astonishing as this:
Bentworth over Serra Catholic.
Call it a hunch, but Jon Kennedy is playing as well as any local player has in the state playoffs over in the past 10 years. Got to ride the hot hand.
