'Canes capture third straight WPIAL title!

NEW CASTLE — Three-peat.

Triple Crown.

Trey cool.

Call it what you want, but you can call the 'Canes WPIAL champions — again.

With a 55-49 victory over Hampton on Saturday night, the New Castle High basketball team captured its third straight WPIAL title. It's the school's 10th overall since 1982.

It was Ne-Ca-Hi's eighth straight victory over their section rivals, including the past three in district title games.

Top-seeded New Castle knocked off the second-seeded Talbots 68-53 last year for the title and 57-44 in 2012 for the crown.

Look for complete coverage on Monday in print and on The Bounce, including a special photo gallery from Tiffany Wolfe and behind-the-scenes video from Chris DeVivo.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
