The Upper St. Clair boys basketball team opened the season by winning their Tip-Off Tournament in a great final against Chartiers Valley by the score of 63-59.

USC defeated Monessen on Friday night to earn the final game against the Colts. It was a close and entertaining game throughout as the Panthers held on to the lead with clutch foul shooting at the end for the victory.

Kyle Meinert led the Panthers with 25 points while Mike Hess added 12.

The Panthers (2-0) will be in action again on Tuesday night when they host two-time defending WPIAL champion Pine-Richland.
