Dale Clancy

Seton-LaSalle

Guard, 5-9, Sr.

A first-team all-state selection, Clancy was the catalyst for a Seton-LaSalle team that won its first WPIAL championship in 25 years and advanced to the PIAA Class AA final. ... Few point guards in the WPIAL could match Clancy's poise, toughness and skill. Clancy was equally adept at scoring as he was distributing. He averaged a team-best 15.3 points per game, including 16 in the WPIAL title game. ... Clancy is considering some NCAA Division II programs for college.

Jonny David

Mt. Lebanon

Guard, 6-1, Jr.

When a player scores 42 points in the season opener, it's probably a good sign that he's bound to have an excellent season. Such was the case for David, who followed his stellar debut by developing into one of the best point guards in Class AAAA. ... The son of Blue Devils coach Joe David, he led Mt. Lebanon -- and all Section 4 players -- in scoring with 17.8 points per game. David scored in double figures in all but two games and was the leading vote-getter for the all-section team.

JaQuan Davidson

Elizabeth Forward

Guard, 6-4, Sr.

A two-time South Xtra Fabulous Five pick, Davidson once again proved to be a difficult matchup due to his talent, size and athletic ability. ... Playing on a team with more offensive threats than a season ago, Davidson saw his scoring average dip from 22 points to 13.8, so he instead impacted games more by setting up his teammates. Led the Warriors to a 20-4 record and second-place finish in the section. ... Davidson, a Fabulous 22 football selection last fall, is headed to Pitt to play that sport.

Ryan Maha

West Mifflin Area

Guard, 6-1, Sr.

Maha saw his season curtailed because of a knee injury, but when he was on the court, his talent and leadership helped vault West Mifflin to a playoff berth. ... Maha, an excellent 3-point shooter, averaged 19.3 points per game and finished with 1,049 points in his career. He scored a season-high 30 against South Allegheny. Maha fought through pain and ended up playing only 12 games, his last coming on Jan. 31, a 25-point effort against arch-rival Steel Valley. ... He will play at Carnegie Mellon.

Joe Mascaro

Bethel Park

Guard, 5-10, Jr.

It was a breakout season for Mascaro, who led Bethel Park to its first PIAA playoff berth since 2007. ... Mascaro tallied a team-high 16.8 points per game and also averaged five assists. He scored at least 25 points six times, including 26 in a win against Section 4-AAAA champion Upper St. Clair on Jan. 21. Mascaro saved his best performance for last, as he poured in 38 points in a loss to WPIAL and PIAA Class AAAA champion New Castle in a PIAA first-round game.
