The Chartiers Valley boys basketball team had a successful outing at the 2012 KSA Classic Basketball Tournament —held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. — as it went 3-0.

The Colts made short work of New York's Tottenville in a 81-59 victory. Chartiers Valley outscored the Pirates, 36-19, in the first quarter to coast to the win. Matty McConnell led the team with 24 points, and Michael Boulos added 19. Jerrad Tuite added 14, Dom Castello had 12 and Spencer Casson finished with 10.

Strong defense led the Colts to an 80-61 win over Alaska' Anchorage Christian. The Colts outscored the Lions, 22-5, in the first quarter. Boulos led the team with 31 points. McConnell added 25 and Tuite 11. Castello finished with 10.
