WPIAL championship rematch week

PIAA Class AAA semifinalists South Fayette and Montour meet for the fourth time this season. This time, a place in the state championship game goes to the winner.

South Fayette (25-2) faces Montour (22-7) Tuesday night at Chartiers Valley High School. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

The Lions and Spartans met twice during the regular season. South Fayette won both games, 65-58 at Montour and 58-38 in the final Section 5 game for both teams. The third meeting took place for the WPIAL championship and Montour's slowdown game worked to near perfection as the Spartans won their first title with a 45-34 win.

In a rematch of the WPIAL Class AA championship, Monessen plays Greensburg Central Catholic Wednesday at Gateway High School in Monroeville. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The balanced Greyhounds (26-2), bolstered by the return of Jaisen Irwin and spurred by the strong play of Cam Johnson, have won 21 consecutive games. Among that streak was an outstanding 20-point win over Greensburg Central Catholic (26-3) in the WPIAL championship game.

Hounds are about to gain their respect again because 20 points wasn't enough to pass them in the rankings
