Pryor, Jeannette won t miss Pennsylvania playoff game

PITTSBURGH Terrelle Pryor and his Jeannette basketball teammates can compete in the semifinal round of the state basketball playoffs.

The Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League ruled yesterday that players from Jeannette and North Catholic will not be suspended for Saturday s post-game fight at Hempfi eld. The ruling means Jeannette will be at full strength

for its game against Erie North East tonight.

Testimony during yesterday s hearing did not show exactly which players were involved in the fi ght, said WPIAL executive director Tim O Malley.

The board felt the penalties assigned should be equal, O Malley said. The board did not feel what was presented was severe enough or one-sided enough to take one of these teams out of the playoffs.

The WPIAL doubles as Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association District 7.
