Final Four: Seneca Valley Boys Basketball Team Heads to Semi Finals

The Raiders will take on no. 1 New Castle after a commanding win over Upper St. Clair in the quarterfinals.

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.
