Boys basketball, Week in review

Team of the Week – Trinity
The Hillers took care of crosstown rival Washington last Tuesday in convincing fashion then won a non-section game at Albert Gallatin Saturday.
Trinity's win against Wash High firmly put the Hillers into the top four among teams in Section 5-AAA. Josh Valentic scored 23 points and was honored pre-game for becoming Trinity's all-time scoring leader.
Trinity's win was as much about contributions from players like Charlie McCaffrey and Corey Hunsberger and team rebounding as it was Valentic's offensive brilliance.
At 3-2 in section play, Trinity faces, arguably, its biggest week of the season starting tonight at South Fayette. The Hillers follow with a home game Friday against second-place Montour.

Runner-up – South Fayette
The Lions scored an impressive win and clearly established themselves as the team to beat in Section 5-AAA with a win at Montour. South Fayette owns a 17-game win streak.

Starting five
John Barker, Bentworth
Mike Lamberti, South Fayette
Ty Negley, Waynesburg
Gabe Prtiz, Peters Township
Josh Valentic, Trinity
Off the bench
Tanner Huffman, California

congrats mr. Stine,mr. Valencic, and Mr. Belhy, and also the young man from burgettstown(who we don't hear much about, but is a heck of a player).
And I can't forget to say GO PREXIES.
HEy mike how about the highlands kid scoring 64 points in a game. missed two shots from the field and one foul shot i think.
Check him out on utube practicing when he was younger.

You are right Pavin from burgettstown is with out question one of the 5 best players in the district but gets no respect from the O-R. he has 30 points in 7-8 games and has yet to get any ink. One week he ave 33 points pg for the week and does not get player of the week?

No one give Negley any love either...the kid is only a Junior and is avg like 15.4 a game! He stepped up when some of the seniors were out with injurys...he was a huge key piece to Waynesburg's team this year.
