BOYS BASKETBALL: Susquehanna Township explodes past shorthanded Upper Moreland

Montgomery Media / BOB RAINES Upper Moreland's Mark Williams goes up for a shot between two Susquehanna Township defenders during Friday's PIAA Class AAA playoff action.
Susquehanna Township’s Joseph Marshall took a shot toward the end of the first quarter Friday night and missed everything.

In the tradition of student sections from all over the country, he was promptly serenaded with chants of “airball” every time he touched the ball.

Well, not every time. The chant didn’t last long. Marshall barely touched the rim on his next six shots, but they all got a lot of net as the sophomore scored 13 of his game-high 17 points to spark a 23-4, second-quarter run that left shorthanded Upper Moreland reeling.

The Indians then cruised to a 62-42 win in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs at Colonial Middle School.
