Bucs, Little Prexies to Semifinals
The Wash High boys team held Aliquippa to just two points over the game's final 10 minutes and hit enough free throws to move to Monday's semifinals. Chartiers-Houston's girls pulled away in the second half, beating Leechburg. The top seed in Class 2A earned a spot in the semifinals on Monday as well. Both teams also clinched PIAA tournament bids. Girls teams from Wash High and California lost. Both are still in the running for state bids, based on the WPIAL's 'follow the winner' qualifying system.

Quarterfinals continue tonight, including Peters Township girls and Chartiers-Houston boys. Trinity's girls team will return to action Saturday after sitting for nearly a week. Here's the remaining schedule for quarterfinals/semifinals. CLICK HERE for brackets.

Penguins Trade For Hainsey
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired veteran defenseman Ron Hainsey from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for minor-league forward Danny Kristo and a draft pick. The move to address the Penguins' depleted defensive unit was made Thursday. Pittsburgh will lose Trevor Daley for six weeks after he had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Hainsey, 35, has played in 891 regular-season games during his 14-year NHL career but has never played in the playoffs. That figures to change now: He leaves the last-place Hurricanes for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who are five points behind East-leading Washington. The deal reunites Hainsey and Pittsburgh general manager Jim Rutherford, who brought Hainsey to Carolina in 2013 with a free-agent deal when he was the Hurricanes' GM.

Conzaga Unstoppable
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Top-ranked Gonzaga remains the only unbeaten team in Division I men's basketball after crushing San Diego, 96-38. Josh Perkins and Jordan Mathews each scored 15 points as the Zags moved to 29-0 overall and 17-0 in the conference. Johnathan Williams had 14 points and 19 rebounds for the Bulldogs, who had earned wins by 47, 46 and 39 points earlier this season before slamming USD by 58 on the road.

Elliott, Hamlin Win Twin 150s
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Daytona 500 pole-sitter Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin were the winners in the Twin 150s on Thursday. Elliott finished ahead of Jamie McMurray in the opening race as Chevrolet drivers were 1-2 on a track expected to be dominated by Ford and Toyota. Dale Earnhardt Jr. led for 53 laps in the second race before Hamlin zoomed past him on the final lap.
