BOYS BASKETBALL: Abington falls to St. Joseph's Prep

Montgomery Media / BOB RAINES Abington's Khalid Gibson lofts a shot over St. Joseph Prep's Miles Overton during Saturday's PIAA Class AAAA playoff game at William Tennent.
After a regular season good enough to give Abington its first conference title in 10 years, followed by a district playoff run which helped the Ghosts to their highest win total since 1997, it wasn’t an ideal start to the state tournament for coach Charles Grasty and his team.

Already with star senior Jordan Simmons out of the lineup due to off-the-court problems, Abington was forced to play from behind from the very start against a tough St. Joseph’s Prep team which finished second overall in a talented Philadelphia Catholic League.

In the end, the combination of missing one of their best players and a size disadvantage down low was enough to do in the Ghosts, whose season ended following a 48-33 loss to the Hawks in a PIAA Class AAAA first round playoff at William Tennent High on Saturday afternoon.
