MONTOURSVILLE - Despite giving up 6-inches Troy's JB Burbage didn't shy away from Warrior Run's 6-7 center Aiden McKee. Even when McKee blocked a couple of Burbage's shots early in the first quarter, Burbage still went after him. That relentlessness paid off, both for Burbage, and for Troy, as both had big nights during the Trojans' 67-42 win over the Defenders during the District IV, Class AAA semi-finals on Tuesday.
This is Troy's second straight district final appearance, and it will be an all NTL one, as they'll face North Penn-Mansfield, who defeated Loyalsock 66-62, at a time, place, and date to be determined.
Burbage was on fire most of the night, finishing with 24 points - including two 3-balls and a 6-for-7 performance from the free line - to go with eight rebounds and five steals.
