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.
