OK,

Here is what we have for you on Day 3 of the District 2 boys basketball tournament. An all-Lackawanna League semifinal on one half of the bracket and an all-Wyoming Valley Conference semifinal in the other half in Class AAA.

And an old favorite returns to the Class A championship game.

Quick hits

Defending Class AAA champion Scranton Prep defeated North Pocono, 83-24, for its 16th straight win. It is also the 14th straight game that the Cavaliers have scored at least 70 points.

 

West Scranton reached the semifinals in Class AAA for the first time since it played against Holy Redeemer in the 2011 championship game.

 

Old Forge reached its 10th straight Class A final with a win over Lackawanna Trail. The Blue Devils have also won eight of the last nine championship games.

 

Forest City upset Old Forge in the 2006 District 2 Class A quarterfinals before losing to Bishop Hannan in the semifinals. The Foresters lost to Old Forge in the semifinals in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 since.
