If you don’t already have a ticket for Friday night’s big game, then you’re probably out of luck. Tickets for the Chartiers Valley at Hampton boys basketball game have sold out, Hampton coach Joe Lafko said.
The gym holds 1,100.
The last of the tickets were sold Wednesday.
The big question, though, will be whether the game is even played. Weather forecasts are calling for several inches of snow throughout the evening Friday. Lafko said he hadn’t yet heard from administrators, but was preparing as if the game would be played.
“We hope we get to play,” Lafko said.
So do high school basketball fans.
Chartiers Valley is ranked No. 1 by the Tribune-Review and has lost only once this season — a tournament game in San Diego. Hampton, the reigning WPIAL Class AAA champion, is ranked No. 2. The Talbots’ only loss was to Mt. Lebanon, the top-ranked team in Class AAAA.
Should the non-section game be canceled, there’s no guarantee it will be rescheduled.
