Roundup: Stingers stifle GC's offense en route to perfect Region 4 record

Ed Farrell, The Herald, Sharon, Pa.
·22 min read

Mar. 2—HERMITAGE — Owing to the global pandemic, much has transpired during the past calendar year — even at the local scholastic sports level.

But a year and a day removed from the District 10 Class 4A championship game, not much has changed for the Hickory High boys' basketball team and cross-county rival Grove City.

At The Hive during Monday night's regular-season finale the host Hornets enveloped the Eagles with suffocating defense en route to a 50-21 Region 4 rout.

"We're meshing together, we're gettin' hot at the right time, we're only gettin' better," summarized senior standout Connor Evans.

Evans ended with a game-high 17-point, 10-rebound double-double for Hickory (14-0, 18-2), which won its 39th consecutive region contest.

For the 2nd straight game the Hornets were without a starter. Peyton Mele's migraine headache kept him out a road win at Greenville last weekend; however, he returned Monday night to convert 11 of 13 free-throw attempts and contribute a 13-point, 8-rebound, 3-assist line. Also, Jackson Pryts posted 15 points, while Tyler Mele spelled senior point guard Matty Cannone, who was sidelined by illness. Tyler Mele mustered a trey and dished out 2 dimes.

Led by Pryts' 6-for-7 performance, Hickory hit 21 of 28 floor shots (75%) and knocked down 15 of 19 freebies (78.9%) while committing just 11 miscues.

"It shows that we're more than one person and we can play together as a team — next man up," Evans assessed.

Additionally, Evans swatted a handful of shots, including a trio of Grove City standout Michael Brooks'.

"They were worried about bumpin' me around; I was just worried about winnin' the game," Evans added, relating, "I'm the guy that likes to do all the 'dirty' work — block shots ... rebounding ... and this year someone had to step up and score points. But I've also tried to keep up my regular self, playing defense and rebounding."

The Evans-led Hornets stung Grove City's precision motion offense. The Eagles (9-5, 9-7) ended 8 for 32 from the floor (25 percent) and ended with 14 turnovers. Hickory out-rebounded Grove City, 27-16.

"It was phenomenal. It was a mind-set," explained Hickory Head Coach Chris Mele regarding his club's defense. "A few games ago we talked about getting an identity ... it's actually been about the last five, six ballgames.

"Erie 'punched us in the mouth, if you will,'" Mele continued regarding a 65-49 loss to the defending District 10 Class 6A champions. "But it was a great game for us; I'm so glad we played 'em. We were all over the ball (Monday) night, we were switchin' when we had to switch, we were gettin' through screens when we had to get through screens. We were just not gonna let (the Eagles) get into their sets, and they always do a fantastic job of running their stuff; they're one of the most disciplined teams on offense. ... To hold that team to nine points in the first half was phenomenal!

"All five guys on the floor were locked in. It was fantastic to see," mentor Mele added. "You look at our lineup (Monday) night: Six-five, six-five, six-five, six-two, six-two. That's a long lineup, and not only were we tall, we were quick. I think that bothered Grove City, and they didn't get anything clean (Monday) night."

Despite 4 personal fouls Brooks broke through for 9 second-half points en route to a team-high 11. But that was the extent of the Eagles' offense.

A year ago Hickory swept the regular-season home-and-home series against Grove City, then that D-10 title tilt. The teams were destined for an Elite Eight matchup before PIAA paused, then cancelled the remainder of the 2019-20 season.

"I think we have an identity right now," Mele mused. "If you wouldn't asked me in the first (half), I wouldn't have been able to give you an answer. But now we're focused defensively — that's our identity. It's a mentality that you've gotta come out with every game.

"I think the sky's the limit if we stay locked in," Mele continued, reflecting, "Last year's team was a team like no other. The pieces and parts we had last year, that's a real hard bar to climb. (Monday) night we got after it defensively, just as good if not better than last year's team. So I'm just proud we're growin' together as a unit. Tyson Djakovich, Christian Evangelista, Julian Hudson, they're comin' in and playin' good minutes and smart minutes, and that's what it takes to be a championship team."

"I think we're a great team, and there's much more to come," Evans added.

GIRLS HOOPS

— Kennedy Catholic 56, West Middlesex 31— At West Middlesex, Coach Justin Magestro's Region 1 champion Lady Golden Eagles (14-0, 17-0) wrapped up their regular season schedule with a perfect record.

It was the first time the KC girls program had an undefeated regular season since the 1975-76 season under Coach Joan Rush.

KC held a slim 24-22 lead at halftime, but outscored the Reds 15-5 in the 3rd quarter and 17-4 in the 4th frame.

Bellah DiNardo bucketed 19 points to lead KC, Keegan McConahy scored 12, and Alaina Suhar added 10 points.

Emily Anthony led WM with 10 points while Kennedy and Carlie Beatty added 6 points apiece.

"I'd like to thank God for giving me the opportunity to be at Kennedy Catholic and to be around such a great group of student-athletes," said Magestro. "I'm totally blessed and honestly in my heart I believe I have the best coaching staff in the state. I can't thank them enough.

"All the kudos and success goes to the girls. They work really hard in the classroom and on the basketball court. It's year-round for them. Good things happen when you work as hard as they do.

"Coach (Mike) Williams has a great program and a great group of kids. It's a rivalry, but it's a friendly rivalry. When you play in one of those games, you throw records out the window. Each game we are 0-0.

"The kids are truly student-athletes and I get a lot of support from the administration and parents. I'm very appreciative of that. You have no idea how valuable that is.

"The girls really stepped up and it truly was a team win because our defense was so solid. Alaina played an unbelievable game. Probably the best game of her career. Paris (Gilmore) played an unbelievable second half and Bellah is constant every game — a blue collar kid who leads by example. She's not real loud, but her actions are what impresses me the most. She leads by example. When you have leaders like her and Keegan, you can't go wrong.

"Hayden (Keith) is usually knocking down threes, but they really focused on her. She played her role and let the game come to her. She did a lot of good things. And Alayjah (Jones) was tremendous in guarding Emily Anthony in the first half. Emily is one of the best point guards in our region. Alayjah did a great job and had a huge steal on an inbounds play to start a big run for us in the third quarter."

"PIAA will review their upcoming winter sports post-season events and capacities with site administrators and make all best efforts to accomodate schools' and their families. These revised restrictions may allow some public sale of tickets based upon occupancy and social distancing restrictions. The PIAA Board of Directors will discuss these topics and other items at its upcoming Wednesday, March 3 meeting.
