Below is a preview of five must-see District playoff championshipgames taking place this weekend in southeastern Pennsylvania.
Bethlehem Catholic (4) vs. Allentown Central Catholic (2): The District 11-4A championship is on the line when these bitter rivals take the court on Friday night. BC will look for talented point guard(19 ppg.) to carry the scoring load. The Alvernia University (D3) commit posted 28 points on the strength of 5 threes in his last District tourney game. He will get support from freshman sensation (10 ppg.). ACC will counter with sophomore phenoms and Lucas Mushrush. Vigo (12 ppg.) is a high-flying wing player who is a 2025 stock riser to watch. Mushrush is a 3-point sniper with ridiculous range. For ACC also keep an eye on NaSean Davis. Tipoff is at 7:30PM at Easton MS.
West Catholic (2) vs. Match, Civics & Sciences (1): West Catholic’s electric backcourt of Adam “Budd” Clark (Coppin State commit) and(Temple commit) are looking to bring the District 12-3A hardware back to Chestnut Street. Running with WC’s stellar guards is 3-level scoring wing . 2022-23 was supposed to be a rebuilding year for MCS, but the outstanding play of seniors and as well as junior Naseem Wright has flipped that script on this season. After their 16-win regular season, a District 12-3A title would bring a story book ending to a tremendous year for MCS. The game will be played at 6:00PM at West Philly HS.
Plymouth Whitemarsh (3) vs. Spring Ford (1): Fans should expect an entertaining and high scoring District 1-6A title affair between two teams that push the pace and drain threes. PW (Suburban One League champions) will lean on stretch-4, scoring combo guard and floor general to provide most of their point production. Slasher wing and power forward Lincoln Sharpe(6’5”)will also contribute. Spring Ford’s up-tempo, 3-point happy offense won them 21 games this season and the PAC tournament title. SF is led bythe fantastic backcourt ofshooting guard (16 ppg.; 61 3PM) and combo guard (12.5 ppg.). 6’4” sophomore Tommy Kelly is an underrated 3rd option for SF. Tipoff is at 6PM at Temple University.
Unionville (3) vs. Radnor (1): The District 1-5A championship game will once again feature the Radnor Raptors and their decorated 2023 group. In the 2022 ‘chip game Radnor suffered a gut-wrenching loss to Chester. This year shooting guard(Princeton commit), point guard (Rochester commit), wing (11 ppg.) and combo guard Cooper Miller are determined to return from Temple’s Liacouras Center with the 5A trophy. If Radnor’s 23s ae going to fulfill their destiny, 6’6” shooting guard will also need to have a big game. Standing in Radnor’s path is an extremely talented Unionville squad led by juniors Ryan Brown and JT Anderson as well as freshman star . Radnor should also be aware of Unionville’s three-point sniper, senior Robbie Logan. Tipoff is at 2PM at Temple University.
Saucon Valley (3) vs. Executive Education ACS (1): Experience will be on the side of EEACS on Saturday as this District 11-3A championship game is their sixth straight appearance in a District title contest. Versatile and skilled power(Rider commit) will control the lane at both ends for EEACS. Meanwhile crafty floor general Rylan Muniz and shooting guard will provide the perimeter scoring. On the flip side, Saucon Valley’s offense relies heavily on scoring points in the paint. If Saucon is going to pull off the upset, 6’5” forward and 6’3” wing must bully their way to buckets and control the boards. Tipoff is at 4:30PM at Easton MS.
