Boys Basketball: District XI Playoffs Start Tonight
Allentown Central Catholic, seeded at #7, had to crawl its way into the playoffs this year, but I am predicting right now that they will upset #2 seed Blue Mountain tonight at magnificent Martz Hall in Pottsville.(7 pm) They came together at the end of the season and had some clutch wins against Becahi and Whitehall in he final two weeks.
There will be two other 5A games tonight.
Pottsville, always a threat, will face Southern Lehigh at Blue Mountain. (7 pm)
Mikey Esquilin and the Whitehall Zephyrs will say Hi to East Stroudsburg North at Allen gym. (7:30 pm).
The #1 seed Bangor, gets a bye. My second prediction is that if they eventually face either Central or Whitehall, it will be bye-bye.
The 1A is playing, too.
Notre Dame East Stroudsburg faces Tri-Valley at Minersville (7 pm)
Salem Christian will take on Susquehanna Community at Allen (6 pm)
Top-seeded Lincoln Leadership gets a bye.
