If PIAA playoffs resume, these WPIAL stars can look forward to Roundball Classic

Tuesday, March 24, 2020 | 8:49 PM

If the suspended PIAA basketball playoffs resume, the season won’t end after all the hardware is handed out in Hershey.

A Western Pennsylvania all-star tradition will follow.

The Roundball Classic is set for April 24-25 at Geneva College with senior all-stars from the WPIAL, City League and District 10 facing off in a seven-game event.

Roundball Classic organizers plan to follow the PIAA’s lead when deciding whether the games should be played. A postponement until late May or June is a possibility.

If the games are played, the main event is scheduled to feature a matchup of WPIAL stars who will take their talents to the state of Indiana next season.

Butler’s Ethan Morton, a Purdue recruit, will lead the WPIAL Class 6A all-stars against a Class 5A team led by Mars’ Michael Carmody, a Notre Dame football recruit.

The game will feature a matchup of WPIAL champion coaches as well, with Butler’s Matt Clement leading the 6A squad and Laurel Highlands’ Rick Hauger coaching the 5A team.

The marquee girls game will pit stars from the WPIAL Class 6A and City League against a team from WPIAL Class 5A and District 10. Chartiers Valley’s Tim McConnell will coach his daughter Megan McConnell, a Duquesne recruit, presumably for the last time.

Here are the rosters for the Roundball Classic.
