What to watch out for in WPIAL sports on December 27, 2021: Holiday hoops galore




Sunday December 26, 2021 | 6:21 p.m.

It is the season of the holiday hoops around the WPIAL.

The long tradition of basketball tournaments played between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day returns after a one-year hiatus.

Around the same time last year, all high school sports were on a month-long hiatus that began on December 11 and lasted until the second week of January.

This year, some local teams are even leaving town for the holidays.

The March boys’ basketball team participates in the Pensacola Beach tournament starting Monday. They are expected to play three games, starting with one against Princeton, Ohio.

The central Catholic basketball team is located in the eastern part of the state and participates in the LaSalle College Holiday tournament. The Vikings face off against the Host Explorers on Monday.

Boys and girls tournaments

Several district schools are having holiday tournaments for boys and girls this week.

Three of them announced on Monday.

A full day of basketball with two boys and two girls is scheduled for the Bentworth Holiday Tournament, Bethel Park Holiday Tournament and Carmichaels King Coal Lions Tournament.

WPIAL vs D-10
