What to watch Saturday: Hasenfuss goes for 300
Besides the obvious playoff angle, Saturday night's YAIAA tournament quarterfinal between Central York and Hanover will have at least one enticing subplot. Panthers head coach Marty Hasenfuss will be going for the 300th victory of his coaching career, which has spanned 19 years and three different schools. Hasenfuss is in his second season at Central, after previous stops at Eastern York and Central Dauphin. According to Daily Record/Sunday News records, Hasenfuss boasts a career 299-186 record, with 200 of those wins coming at Eastern York. Hasenfuss' Panthers have rebounded from a shaky start to the season to post a 15-7 record heading into Saturday's action. Central has won eight of its last nine games, with that lone loss coming to William Penn. I'll be at Dallastown on Saturday for what should be an interesting contrast of styles. Central has placed an emphasis on pounding the ball into the paint lately, while Hanover (17-4) relies on the outside shot to offset a relative lack of size.
