MALIK HOOKER New Castle throws down two in the fourth quarter to close out the the Red Hurricanes 55-49 win over Hampton in the WPIAL AAAA championship game, New Castle won their 3rd WPIAL championship in a row
Give the Talbots defense a ton of credit. For the most part, they held the talented Hooker in check. The Ohio State football recruit, who averages 23 points per game, was held to only 6 points.
With Ben Roethlisberger and Jamie Dixon watching from courtside, the Red Hurricanes led by the Allen brothers Stew and Drew battled back. Stew, who will play football at Duquesne University next year, had 18 points and Drew, who will play football at Robert Morris next year, had 14 points.
