The WPIAL basketball championships will move to Petersen Events Center next season, not a year later as the Board of Control incorrectly stated Monday.

The WPIAL agenda and meeting discussion included 2015-16 and 2016-17 for leaving Palumbo Center.

“That was wrong,” said WPIAL executive director Tim O'Malley, listing the correct championship dates now as Feb. 27-28, 2015, and Feb. 26-27, 2016.

Boys basketball finals have been played at Palumbo Center since 1995. The only exception was 2006, when the finals were split between Palumbo Center and Petersen Center.
