Guilfoyle boys in (for them) uncharted territory.
Average height on the starting 5: 5'10"-5'11". They've put in two herculean efforts and managed two victories by the slimmest of margins in the last two games. Unless the 3's drop at a high rate, size could be their downfall tomorrow.

I believe one senior in the rotation, plus the best player in the state returning. I’d take them and let others have the field.

West Middlesex had a lot coming back I noticed from watching the lineups announced. I want to say McCort has a lot returning too and they gave Bellwood probably their toughest game in the entire postseason.

Thing that bothered me the most so far was the announcers on PCN continually calling Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter a public school because they are from the Philly Public School league. What's the backstory on this "school"? Kenyan name, Kenyan Flag In their logo, African/Kenyan Tribe dressed representatives on the floor for their trophy presentation. Does Kenya booster this "school" or something?....Just curious.

"The term Sankofa is an Akan expression that is translated “Reach back to move forward”. Sankofa Freedom Academy (SFA) believes children of African descent and other scholars of color have absolutely everything they need to achieve academically and live lives as fully actualized human beings who are able to build and maintain healthy communities and establish a just world...."

Well that would be an accurate statement. They can get students from anywhere within the city limits of Philadelphia. 

Sankofa Freedom is a charter in name, but different in practice than say Lincoln Park in Midland. So if everyone gets the public/private separation they want, Sankofa Freedom would likely remain in the PIAA.
