Here’s a bold prediction: A father-son/coach-player combination will win a WPIAL basketball title today. OK, not such a bold prediction, since Sewickley Academy is leading, 42-27, after three quarters. Win Palmer is coach at Sewickley Academy. His son, Tyler Palmer, is a senior guard. But Palmer has been through this before with older son Matt, who played for the Panthers earlier this decade.
And, of course, the McConnells (Tim and T.J.) are coming up next.
