The schedule is out for the 2019-20 series of Scholastic Play-By-Play showcases, and as always, there’s plenty of entertaining multi-game events taking place around the Delaware Valley during December and January, before the high school playoffs kick in around the state. 

Chester High School, Unionville High School, Jefferson University, West Chester University, and a few other sites around the area will host the events, which feature as many as six games in a day between some of the top programs in the area. Just a sampling of the lineups include teams from the Catholic League (Roman Catholic, Archbishop Wood, Neumann-Goretti, Archbishop Carroll, La Salle), the Inter-Ac (Malvern Prep, Haverford School, Germantown Academy), Public League (Imhotep Charter, MCS), District 1 (Abington, Chester, Lower Merion, Penncrest), and more. 

Below is a selection of Play-by-Play events that take place in or feature mainly Philadelphia-area boys’ basketball programs. For the full schedule, including events in New Jersey, Ohio, and more, click here.
