CONRAD WEISER TAKES DOWN KUTZTOWN 62-50

February 10, 2018 Bruce Badgley

Growing up in Indiana I learned to enjoy the post season tournaments that match up big schools vs small schools, county vs city and the schools that rarely schedule one another.  These games are filled with emotion.  It is great for the teams, coaches and most importantly the fans. Such was the case at Exeter High School Friday  […]

February 3, 2018 Andy Herr

Last year when the Donegal Indians met the Daniel Boone Blazers on the basketball court, both programs were desperately itching for a win to help close out frustrating seasons in which the wins were hard to come by.

Freshman Stevie Mitchell led […]

Crespo Hits Career Milestone As Manheim Township Regains Its Mojo In Saturday Afternoon Victory Over Governor Mifflin

January 28, 2018 Andy Herr

The last time that the Manheim Township Blue Streaks and Governor Mifflin Mustangs hooked up on the basketball court, the result had seismic-like repercussions. On the late Saturday afternoon of January 28th last year, the Blue Streaks trekked northward to tangle with the then #1 ranked team in District 3 6A. It was a game […]

WYOMISSING WINS OT BATTLE OVER KUTZTOWN 54-47

January 24, 2018 Bruce Badgley

The Kutztown Cougars came into Wednesday nights matchup with the Wyomissing Spartans riding high.  15 straight wins and number one in the District Three AAA power rating.  Wyomissing entered with only five wins and was still searching for team chemistry.  So I guess the writing was on the wall for this one, or was it.  […]

The old adage is that you want to be playing your best brand of basketball heading into the home stretch.

READING HIGH RUNS ALL OVER GOVERNOR MIFFLIN 78-29

January 18, 2018 Bruce Badgley

The Reading High basketball program and Head Coach Rick Perez have very high expectations.  Coming off a PA 6A state title, having key players leave for the next level, some fans may have lowered the expectation.  It is clear that Coach Perez and this Red Knights squad have not lowered expectations at all.  Reading High has come out […]

BERKS CATHOLIC ROLLS PAST WYOMISSING 58-30

January 12, 2018 Bruce Badgley

It is called the “Backyard Brawl” in football, I call it the “Basketbrawl” when Berks Catholic and Wyomissing get together on the basketball court.  BC and Wyo are just blocks apart. Any time the Saints and Spartans match up against one another, the intensity gets ratcheted way,way up.  Lots of pre game emotion and excitement in Wyo Friday […]

WILSON NEEDS BIG 4TH QUARTER TO BEAT MUHLENBERG 55-48

January 10, 2018 Bruce Badgley

Weather is such a big part of a basketball teams success each year.  The result of re-schedules means some teams are playing on back to back nights, or even mornings.  I have seen the big difference in energy and intensity levels between the rested teams and the teams playing on consecutive nights. Wilson was coming off an emotional hard fought win with […]

January 9, 2018 Bruce Badgley

The great thing about Section I of the Berks League, is that  it is mostly about the cross town rivals.  Tonight it was Governor Mifflin’s turn to head across town to face off against its athletic nemesis Wilson WL.  Mifflin was coming off a stinging loss at the hands of Exeter.  Wilson was riding high following a […]
