New state basketball rankings

Written by Mike White on .

The latest state boys basketball rankings are below. But first, one piece of WPIAL football coaching news.

As expected, Seton-LaSalle has hired Damon Rosol as its new coach. Rosol has been the offensive coordinator at Montour the past nine seasons. Previous to that, he was an assistant at Seton-LaSalle and also played at Seton-LaSalle.

Rosol takes over for Greg Perry, who could be named Keystone Oaks' new coach next week.

Here are the state boys basketball rankings, courtesy of Pennlive.com and the Harrisburg Patriot-News.

Perry top candidate at KO .... Seton-LaSalle might hire Montour assistant

Written by Mike White on .

Greg Perry resigned last week as Seton-LaSalle's football coach. But it looks like he won't have to go far for his next coaching job.

Just across the street.

Greg PerryPerry (pictured) has emerged as the leading candidate to be the next head coach at Keystone Oaks. Seton-LaSalle and Keystone Oaks are across the street from each other.

Keystone Oaks has not finalized things. The school board won't do that until next week. And you never know about coaching hires until the school board approves the hiring. Perry knows. He resigned at Seton-LaSalle last year and the Baldwin administration recommended that Perry be hired. But the Baldwin school board voted, 5-4, against hiring Perry and instead hired Pete Wagner. Perry eventually returned to Seton-LaSalle.

So nothing is official yet but Perry is most certainly the favorite to be the next Keystone Oaks coach.

Perry was Seton-LaSalle's coach for nine seasons. He was successful and became known for developing top passing quarterbacks.

Meanwhile, it is likely that Perry's successor at Seton-LaSalle will be Damon Rosol, the offensive coordinator at Montour. Seton-LaSalle's administration also hasn't finalized things, but Rosol is the top candidate. Seton-LaSalle might make a hire this week.

Rosol is a 1993 graduate of Seton-LaSalle and a former lineman for the Rebels. He was an assistant coach at Seton-LaSalle under Lou Cerro for eight seasons (1997-2004). When Cerro left to go to Montour, Rosol went with him and spent the past nine years as a Montour assistant.

No. 1 teams meet tonight

Written by Mike White on .

In what might be the most interesting game of the WPIAL basketball season so far, two No. 1 teams meet tonight in one of the championship games of the C.J. Betters tournament at the Beaver Dome.

New Castle, the Post-Gazette's No. 1-ranked WPIAL Class AAAA team, meets Lincoln Park, the No. 1 Class A team, in the Gray Division championship at 8:30.

Lincoln Park is only Class A, but don't think they can't play with top Class AAAA teams. Lincoln Park already owns a 19-point win against Central Catholic and has a load of talent.

New Castle's 53-game winning streak is on the line. I've seen New Castle play this year. I had said the Red Hurricanes wouldn't be as good as last year, because of the graduation of Shawn Anderson and a few others. I'm not sure of that now. They are still very good.

I haven't seen Lincoln Park, but I'll still take New Castle.

Malik Hooker**** And after watching New Castle once, Malik Hooker has to be one of the best athletes in the state. He has that "wow" factor. Every once in a while in a basketball game, he'll do something with his athletic ability that just makes you go "Wow."

Hooker (pictured) is an Ohio State football recruit. The Buckeyes recruited him as a defensive back. If he "gets it" as a football player, he could go real far. I'm not sure how far he will go. But he has the body and the athletic ability to play after college.

**** How about Vincentian? The Royals were averaging 91 points a game and they scored 101 against Serra last night.

State basketball rankings

Written by Mike White on .

Before we get to the rankings, a couple pieces of small football recruiting news:

First, Neshannock lineman Steven Jeffries (6-5, 265) committed to Youngstown State.

Secondly, I'm not sure this has been reported much in the Pittsburgh area and it's somewhat old news, but if you hadn't heard, former Chartiers Wayne CapersValley standout Wayne Capers has left the University of Arizona football program. A story in the Arizona Daily Star last month said Capers left for medical reasons and might transfer to a school closer to home.

Capers (pictured) showed promise as a true freshman in 2012, playing in 11 games. But he played in only three this season.

Capers is the second WPIAL player to leave the Arizona program because of medical issues. Former Upper St. Clair star Dakota Conwell had to quit before this season because of concussions.

Now, here are the state boys basketball rankings from Pennlive.com and the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
