How to watch Monday’s WPIAL basketball championships on Trib HSSN

Monday, March 15, 2021 | 11:19 AM

The final four WPIAL basketball championship games will be played tonight at a pair of high school gymnasiums, and a quartet of teams will be rewarded for persevering during an unprecedented 2020-21 season.

Teams endured covid-19 protocols and shutdowns that provided a bigger challenge than any on-court opponent.

They continued to focus on goals of playing for a WPIAL title, and those dreams will become reality tonight.

The TribLive High School Network has you covered with exclusive live video stream broadcasts of all 12 championship games, as well as game coverage, photos, scores and summaries of all the action.
