PIAA girls basketball tournament pairings update

Sunday, March 14, 2021 | 2:31 PM

Ten WPIAL girls basketball teams were still alive through two rounds of the PIAA postseason last year when their title dreams, like the rest of the world, came to a sudden stop because of the covid-19 outbreak.

The state basketball playoffs never resumed.

Now six freshly minted WPIAL champions are set for the district champion-only version of the PIAA playoffs that continue with state quarterfinals games on Friday and Saturday.

All of the WPIAL champions receive a first-round bye and will host quarterfinals games Friday or Saturday.
