BOYS BASKETBALL: GA edges AFS in overtime

Montgomery Media / BOB RAINES Germantown Academy's Julian Moore drives past Abington Friends' Tony Carr during Wednesday's PAISSA tournament action.
The Abington Friends and Germantown Academy boys’ basketball teams had a lot in common before facing each other on Wednesday night.

Both squads recently won their respective league titles and both rode winning streaks this season that went into double digits. The two teams entered their playoff matchup with each other with identical 20-6 overall records and both teams are run by a head coach who took over for his respective program before a single player on either side was even born.

But as is the case in any other state playoff game, one team had to come out victorious and one team had to watch its season end in disappointment.

In this particular instance, it was the Patriots who came out on top, defeating the Kangaroos 67-63 in a PA Independent Schools (PAISAA) semifinal in front of a packed house at Germantown Academy.
