PIAA basketball sites, times: Mars vs. Moon boys semifinal at New Castle
Saturday, March 16, 2019 | 10:45 AM
The PIAA needed an out-of-this-world site for a state semifinal between Mars and Moon — or at least a gym with lots of seats.
It chose New Castle.
The WPIAL Class 5A boys finalists will rematch at 7 p.m. Monday at New Castle with the winner headed to Hershey for the state finals. Mars defeated Moon, 58-56, when the teams met March 1 in the WPIAL finals at Petersen Events Center.
