NCAA Tournament: NC State upsets Georgetown

PSR Logo
Ohio edges South Florida; Michigan State and Kansas survice scares


Lorenzo Brown hit three free throws in the final 11 seconds and North Carolina State advanced to the Sweet 16 with a 66-63 upset of third-seeded Georgetown in a Midwest Regional on Sunday.


The Wolfpack (24-12) advance to play the Purdue-Kansas winner on Friday in St. Louis.


An 11th seed coming in, NC STate survived a furious comeback by the Hoyas (24-9) and only were assured of the win when Jason Clark's hurried 3-point attempt from the right wing was off the mark at the buzzer.


C.J. Williams, Scott Wood and C.J. Leslie each had 14 points, and Brown added 12 for the Wolfpack, who earned their first trip to the round of 16 since 2005.


Hollis Thompson led the Hoyas with 23 points.

I spent three days late last month visiting 18 high schools across the WPIAL. I drove 533 miles, took hundreds of photographs, shook hands with dozens of coaches, athletic directors and principals and climbed way too many stadium steps. I loved every minute of it, of course.

The Pittsburgh Riverhounds 2014 season ended last Saturday much the same way their season started in the spring. With lots of promise, with much anticipation, but in the end, in a disappointing finish.

Several of the most coveted recruits throughout the WPIAL have already made their college decisions, most notably Sterling Jenkins of Baldwin. Others, like Central Valley's Jordan Whitehead, are still being recruited.

Bill Cherpak misses the way it used to be. Back in the 80’s, when the current Thomas Jefferson High School coach was a player at Steel Valley, the recruiting process wasn’t publicized. It was low-key compared to the present.

The Mon-Valley has put plenty of athletes on Division 1 football teams over the years, including several who made it to the NFL. There are a few Mon-Valley natives playing D-1 ball this season.
