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

Saturday, March 13, 2021 | 9:25 AM

Four more 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.

Trib HSSN brings you the Best Seat in the House with all live and archived broadcasts free to stream.
