Tonight's PSUAC Quarterfinal matchup between DuBois and Beaver was shades of last season as these 2 teams met in the quarterfinals last year in similar fashion. Last season saw DuBois a #4 seed and Beaver a #5 seed, and they both had to play at a neutral site. This year #2 DuBois will have an upper hand as they were able to secure home court advantage. DuBois tied #1 Fayette, and had to go to a tie breaker. Ironically enough that tie breaker was how many conference sets were lost by each team. Other than Fayette, DuBois only PSUAC set loss of the season was to, you guessed it, Beaver.
And so, the 5 set match that ended Beaver's season a year ago will be on their mind again as they come into DuBois gym to play this evening. And don't think DuBois doesn't have that one lost set from earlier this year sticking in their minds either.
DuBois and Beaver are set for a battle tonight!
