At Allentown Allen
Carroll 46, Bethehem Catholic 44: Off a pass from John Camden (10 points), frosh Dean Coleman-Newsome drained just the Patriots' third trey of the game, and first since the first quarter, to win it. Anquan Hill collected nine of his 16 points in the fourth quarter.
At Bethlehem Liberty
Bonner-Prendie 67, Valley View 33: VV's turnover total (31) almost matched its points and two players fouled out in the third quarter. Tyreese Watson sniped 10-for-13 en route to 27 points in only three quarters of action. He also had five of the Friars' 20 steals.
At Garden Spot
Harrisburg McDevitt 58, Carroll 49: Amiri Stewart (12), John Camden and Dean Coleman-Newsome (10 apiece) reached double digits for Carroll and Tairi Ketner (nine) came close.
Wood 72, Strath Haven 45: The Vikings won the second half, 47-24, to triumph in going-away fashion. Marcus Randoph (20), Rahsool Diggins (18) and Jaylen Stinson (15) led the way and Muneer Newton mixed seven points, eight rebounds.
Ryan 62, Penn Wood 50: Jalen Snead turned in quite the well-rounded performance, totaling 11 rebounds, seven blocks and four steals. Gediminias Mokseckas and Christian Isopi netted 20 and 15 points, respectively, while Dominic Vazquez had 14 points and five assists.
At Bethlehem Freedom
Wood 72, Pittston 45: A 13-point run enabled the Vikings to own a 35-23 advantage at halftime. Then they opened the second half with 12 of the first 15 markers. Deashon Sheperd (22) led the way, followed by Marcus Randolph (14), Rahsool Diggins and Jaylen Stinson (13 apiece).
Ryan 67, Elizabethtown 39: Gediminias Mokseckas (20) and Dominic Vazquez (19) fueled this frolic and Jalen Sned had seven assists, four steals. Vazquez (six) and Mokseckas (four) also notched a decent number of dishes.
Roman 81, Coastesville 75: With star guard Lynn Greer unavailable due to injury, sixth man Nasir Lett stepped up and notched 16 points, thanks in part to three of the Cahillites' eight three-point bombs. Justice Williams was the headliner, though, due to 27 points (11 in fourth quarter) and five assists. Xzavier Brown (17) and Jalen Duren (13) also scored in double figures while Duren (11) and Will Norman (eight) were the rebounds leaders.
At Kutztown Univ.
Reading 57, SJ Prep 45: This setback brought an end to the wonderful, 52-year career of coach Speedy Morris.

The scoring was completed by Chris Arizin, Brian Geatens (10 apiece) and Jimmy King (seven).
