Chartiers Valley-Hampton finally set date
The long-awaited and twice-postponed boys basketball showdown between Chartiers Valley and Hampton is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday at Hampton, according to the host school’s athletic director, Bill Cardone.
Chartiers Valley (17-1) is No. 1 in the Tribune-Review Class AAA rankings; Hampton (16-1) is No. 2.

The first playoff games are scheduled for Feb. 19.
