HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) - Getting 28 points from Ahmad Gilbert and 20 from Kimar Williams, Constitution wheeled past Farrell 85-53 in the PIAA Class A boys’ basketball championship game Friday at Giant Center.
Chad Andrews-Fulton added 14 points and 15 rebounds for Rob Moore’s Generals (24-8), who a season ago captured the PIAA’s Class AA title.
Constitution, which owned a 54-25 edge on the glass, also captured the PIAA’s Class A championship in 2012.
A 23-0 run in the opening quarter helped Rob Moore’s club snap an early 3-3 deadlock and roll to a 26-3 lead with 1:26 left in the first.
Farrell (24-5) was able to pull within 19 (39-20) by the halftime break, but Roland Shannonhouse’s Steelers never got closer than that.
Headed to George Mason, the 6-7 Gilbert also grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out four assists. Eighteen of Gilbert’s game-high 28 came from beyond the 3-point arc.
Williams also dished out eight assists, one more than Haneef Vaughn.
Malik Miller was one of the few bright spots for Farrell, as the 6-3 junior totaled 24 points in a losing effort.
