The Lower Merion High School boys’ basketball team has had a history of playing its best basketball in February. That trend has certainly continued this year as the Aces have won 15 of its last 16 games including its third straight Central League playoff championship.
In front of a packed house at Harriton High School that included spirited student sections from both Lower Merion and Conestoga, the top-seeded Aces fought back from an early deficit to defeat second-seeded Conestoga 64-55.
“This Central League playoff title is special,’ said Lower Merion coach Gregg Downer. “We got off to a slow start and was not sure about the identity of this team. We lost 10 seniors from last year’s team and that is substantial. To win 15 of our final 16 games including the Central League playoff title means a lot to this program.’
