Sunday, December 19, 2021 | 10:01 PM
The final week of high school basketball section play in 2021 begins with 30 girls contests slated for Monday.
Even though it is early days in section play, five of those contests will be for at least an early share of first place in their respective sections.
There are three fights for first in Class 4A.
East vs. West
One of the WPIAL girls basketball nonsection games set for Monday features the furthest eastern school in the district against one of the western schools in the WPIAL.
The Indians are off to a 3-0 start, and the host Tigers are 4-0.
D-7 vs. D-8
There are 19 district nonsection boys basketball games scheduled for Monday. Of those, four of them pit WPIAL and City League teams against each other.
