Basketball bounces in as our local Boys and Girls hit the court with their 2022-23 entries for the upcoming season. Tip-Off Tournaments are over and pre-season nonconference games are in full swing heading toward the annual host of upcoming Holiday Tournaments. Next stop will be regular season play and a quest for a WPIAL Championship, every team’s dream.
Join us as Gazette 2.0 brings you start-to-finish coverage, Girls and Boys action, all season long as our local teams chase their dreams of WPIALGold.
Our staff has compiled a watch list of what we feel will be some of the best and brightest stars our area has to offer. Players to watch that will assuredly be a fan’s delight.
