For most of the season, boys basketball teams in Section 2-AAAA jockeyed for playoff positions.

At times, there were six teams that showed signs of greatness. But only four will continue their season in the WPIAL playoffs, which start this week.

Fox Chapel (9-5) used a 56-50 win over Central Catholic on Friday to earn a playoff berth, joining Plum (11-3), Franklin Regional (10-4) and Gateway (9-5).

The Vikings (8-6), who started the season 5-1 but lost three of their final four, as well as McKeesport (7-7), which won five of seven section games down the stretch, were left out.

All-American boy

Baldwin junior lineman Sterling Jenkins, a four-star recruit by rivals.com, accepted an invitation to play in the 2015 Under Armour All-American game Friday.
