FINAL SCORE: Montour 52, South Fayette 43

Devin Wilson finishes with triple double. 24 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists. Hate to keep writing about the kid, but what a winner. Made just about every play in final five minutes - in front of Jay Wright and Phil Martelli. Justin Hill added 11.

C.J. Rudisill finishes with 15 for South Fayette. Evan Bonnaure 13, son of coach Rich Bonnaure who had an excellent year. Nice player.

8:33 p.m. - Things unraveling for South Fayette. SF had ball, but turned it over, violation. I think Evan Bonnaure went out of bounds off a screen and then was first to touch coming in. And then a technial on coach Rich Bonnaure. 

8:27 p.m. - Timeout 2:27. If you're Montour, you have advantage now. Up 2 with ball. Devin Wilson time to put it in fridge. South Fayette turned it over after Wilson put Montour ahead.

8:25 p.m. Is Devin Wilson going to make every play down stretch again? Basket, blocked shot at other end, nifty pass to Justin Hill for layup. Montour leads, 43-41, with 3:12 left.

8:22 p.m. - 4:41 left in game. Timeout. We're all tied, 39-39. Dustin Sleva hit a 3 for Montour. Lucas Russell hit one for South Fayette.

END OF THIRD QUARTER: South Fayette 34, Montour 33

Pace of the game definitely deliberate. But that's sort of what Montour likes. Devin Wilson only three points that quarter. Montour now 5 of 16 from 3.

8:12 p.m. - Zach Challingsworth three point play. Pitt football recruit. SF on top, 34-31.

8:10 p.m. - Two 3's for C.J. Rudisill this half. SF leads, 31-29 with four minutes left in third.

Vincentian boys lead Clarion, 11-4, early on.

HALFTIME: South Fayette 22, Montour 21

Villanova coach Jay Wright also in house. He and St. Joseph's Phil Martelli. To see Devin Wilson. They can't comment on Wilson, but I know St. Joe's likes Wilson a lot.

South Fayette played triangle-and-two entire half on Montour's Kevin Scuilli and Rob Julian, or another shooter if one of them was out. Devin Wilson with 10 points for Montour. SF letting him shoot, but Wilson has attempted only few outside shots.

Someone from Montour is going to have to hit some outside shots. Justin Hill hit two 3's but he is 2 of 6 overall from 3.

Montour 4 of 11 from 3. South Fayette 4 of 6. Evan Bonnaure doing very nice job. Has 11 points. Two 3's.

7:47 p.m. - Timeout and Montour leads, 21-17.

7:46 p.m. - Wilson hits a 3 and Montour goes on top, 19-17.

 END FIRST QUARTER: Montour 13, South Fayette 13

Four-point play by SF's C.J. Rudisill tied it.

7:38 p.m. - Montour leads, 13-8, with one minute left in half.

7:34 p.m - South Fayette giving Devin Wilson any outside shot he wants, but Justin Hill hits 3. Wilson not real good shooter but always finds ways to score. Already has five points.

7:32 p.m. - South Fayette opens in triangle-and-two on Montour shooters - Kevin Scuilli and Robbie Julian.

7:25 p.m. - Great to see Montour Maniacs out in full force. Doing the "Red Out" for Ryan, for an 8th grade Montour student who passed away last week. 


7:15 p.m. - College interest in Devin Wilson keeps growing. Just saw St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli here. 

Supposedly Villanova coach Jay Wright might be coming, too.

FINAL: Seton-LaSalle girls 67, Kane 16

Natalie Piaggesi and Naje Gibson 16 points each.

General McLane girls leading Jeannette, 37-31.

Mt. Lebanon girls now leading Bethel Park, 34-32, with a little more than two minutes left.

More from PIAA girls. Burrell leads Bellwood-Antis, 41-36, after third quarter in Class AA.


The WPIAL Quad-A champ could be going down. P-G colleague Brad Everett reports that Bethel Park is losing to Mt. Lebanon, 32-27, with 6 minutes left in the game. Really, it wouldn't be a big upset. The two teams split two games during the season.

Meanwhile, here at North Allegheny it's a little absurd. Seton-LaSalle girls are leading Kane, 65-12. with five minutes left.

Seriously, I said Sixty-give to twelve. State playoff game. NOT.
