I was laughed at on here when I said that Monessen would go farther than Wash High.

I know gas is expensive and all, but how could the OR not have a report on the Peters Twp. games at NA yesterday? 2 local teams in the quarters and not a word about the game?

Very surprising.

There was some great basketball on display at NA yesterday, especially by Destiney Brown and the Gateway girls. PT boys also impressed me as this was the first time I've seen them pray. Their point guard #3 was great, I think he could be a D1 talent.
