Boys Advance in PAISAA Hoops Tourney
In the PAISAA basketball tournament, teams that hit the road for first-round games are lower seeds and expected to lose.
Someone forgot to tell PC's boys varsity.
Friday, the Quakers bested Academy of the New Church, 53-52, as junior Adam Holland converted a one-and-one with 15.7 seconds remaining and ANC was unable to complete what could have been a three-point play at 2.7.
The not-related Williams Guys were PC's leaders. Soph Mason hit four treys while scoring 20 points. Harrison, a senior, packed all 12 of his points into the second half and sniped 3-for-3 beyond the arc.
Also, senior Jake McCain and Holland halved eight assists while freshman Ryan "Pooch" Holmes made a steal and zoomed 60-plus feet before uncorking his second dunk of the season.
PC will visit Hill School, in Pottstown, for a 7 o'clock quarterfinal on Saturday.
