Chartiers Valley-Hampton finally set date

| Friday, Feb. 12, 2010

The long-awaited and twice-postponed boys basketball showdown between Chartiers Valley and Hampton is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday at Hampton, according to the host school's athletic director, Bill Cardone.

Chartiers Valley (17-1) is No. 1 in the Tribune-Review Class AAA rankings; Hampton (16-1) is No. 2. The nonsection game was postponed twice due to weather concerns, but it is important for seeding purposes for the upcoming WPIAL tournament and could be a preview of the title game March 5 or 6 at the Palumbo Center.

» The WPIAL has extended the basketball regular season one more day to Tuesday, giving schools until then to complete their schedules. This is the second extension due to the large number of postponements over the past week. The basketball steering committee will meet Wednesday to plan the playoffs, and the brackets will be revealed that night at 7 at the Embassy Suites in Coraopolis. The first playoff games are scheduled for Feb. 19.

» The WPIAL team and individual rifle championships have been postponed until Feb. 23 and 25 at the Dormont/Mt. Lebanon Sportsman's Club in Canonsburg.

» City League basketball games postponed Tuesday, Thursday and today will be made up Feb. 15, 23 and 25.
