Boys Basketball: University takes control of BCL West with win over Urban

By Zack Farmer

After a disappointing loss to Lick-Wilmerding on Tuesday, the University boys basketball team fell behind early against visiting Urban on Friday, but turned up its defensive pressure in the second and third quarters to rally and pull away in 63-47 a win.

The win broke a first-place tie between the two teams in the Bay Counties League West and put the Red Devils all alone at the top of the league with two games remaining.

The final margin was only 13 points, but the University boys basketball team left a larger impression on Urban after the Red Devils’ 80-67 Bay Counties League West win on Wednesday night at Kezar Pavilion.

“They pretty much dominated us for most of the game,” said Urban head coach Joe Skiffer. “We didn’t have enough fight [or] enough discipline to beat that team tonight.”

Behind 16 points from hot-shooting senior guard David Medoff and eight points from junior forward Jack Gale, the University boys basketball team charged out to a 15-point halftime lead on the road against Marshall on Wednesday.

But it was the heady, all-around play of seniors Harold Getz and Chris Mah that allowed the Red Devils to withstand a fourth-quarter Marshall rally and emerge with a 67-50 non-league victory.
