The Palumbo Center crowd had already seen Lincoln Park’s Devontae Watson, a 6-foot-9 sophomore, block 13 shots during Friday night’s WPIAL Class A boys championship game. And 6-foot-6 junior Devon Cottrell, who will play for Gateway in its game at 9 p.m. tonight, blocked 16 shots during the Gators’ semifinal win.
But we learned Saturday that one of the WPIAL’s best shot blockers stands just 5-foot-11.
Mt. Lebanon junior Madison Cable has blocked three shots during the first half of Saturday night’s WPIAL Class AAAA girls basketball championship, helping the top-ranked Blue Devils take a 32-20 lead over Baldwin. Cable also had nine points. Teammates Lauren Arbogast and Jess Babe, both seniors, have already accepted Division I scholarships (Central Connecticut State).
Cable should be the next Blue Devil going Division I.
