Just in time for March Madness, the Seneca Valley boys basketball team is heading to the final four.
The Raiders defeated the no.4 seeded Upper St. Clair Panthers by a score of 44-34 in the WPIAL Class AAAA quarterfinal game played Saturday at North Allegheny.
Upper St. Clair was scoreless until the 4:44 mark of the second quarter, according to the Post-Gazette. In fact, only six points were scored in the first quarter—all by Seneca Valley.
By that time, students in the Raiders section already were chanting, "It's a shutout," the P-G reports.
Seneca Valley’s high scorers for Saturday’s game were R.J. McCauley with 13 points and Easton Bazzoli with 10 points.
Up next, the no. 12 seeded Raiders will take on no. 1 New Castle in the semifinals at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Ambridge High School.
