Trio make all-state
Three area players earned spots on the Associated Press Pennsylvania boys all-state high school basketball teams, which were released Monday afternoon.
Nick Wilcox, the Observer-Reporter Boys Player of the Year, made Class AAAA third team and became the first local player to make the all-state team in the largest classification in over a decade. Wilcox, a senior, was also honored as an all-state soccer selection.
Nick Bryant, the leading scorer on Wash High's PIAA Class AA semifinal team, was a Class AA second-team selection and narrowly missed making the first team.
Mike Lamberti, the leading scorer and rebounder for South Fayette's WPIAL Class AA semifinal squad, was third team.
