GIRLS BASKETBALL: York Catholic out-muscles St. Basil

It was a great PIAA tournament run for St. Basil, but in the end size is important for winning championships and the Lady Panthers just didn’t have enough of it against York Catholic.

St. Basil fought its heart out and made things interesting with the three-pointer, but a bad first half foreshadowed an even worse second stanza as the Lady Panthers lost 45-28 in the semifinal round of the PIAA Class AA tournament at Reading High School. Unable to cope with a very physical York Catholic team, St. Basil was out-rebounded and out-muscled all night in what would be the final game of a great season.

“What can you do, they were the better team,” St. Basil coach Terry Mancini said. “I’m disappointed for our seniors. Obviously we got the experience to make a run like this. We had two student fan buses come out tonight, which was great. I’m proud to be a part of the Basil community and I’m proud of the 15 girls in that locker room.”
