Chuzie out coached again! Calls time out with 9 seconds left and gets the ball stolen instead of a shot off- way to go coach. Top 50 team in the country then what does that make Dan Perfetto and Mercyhurst? 49th??

Let's see, defending state champs face off against state runner-up in a sold out college gym with an epic OT battle and our local paper had nothing the next morning?

Whoever called curfew on that report should be fired. ETN galloping towards extinction.

Had front row seats, was a great game played by two great teams in an electric atmosphere. Both schools showed great school spirit and sportsmanship. As a parent of a VMA student (not a b-ball player) I was disappointing with the outcome, but not with the commitment that the players gave and their intensity. They left it all on the court, as did the MPS players. All should be proud, they are great kids, athletes and made all of their parents, coaches and their respective schools proud. As ETN Fails stated, too bad the paper is published in Butler and they had to send their copy south, otherwise it would have been 1st page news with nice photos.

I wonder if anything was in the paper today about the Super Bowl. How about Franklin losing to AAAA Oakland Catholic and dropping one spot in AAA and Mercyhurst beating AA Villa and moving up in AAA. I can't wait for the Franklin - Mercyhurst showdown in the playoffs.
