There was really no need for Tom Droney to show off. Already signed to play at Division I Davidson College, Sewickley Academy’s senior guard had obviously made an indelible impression on Wildcats coach Bob McKillop.
But with McKillop watching from the stands at Cornell High School Tuesday night, Droney offered a reminder, a reassurance perhaps, of why he was recruited to the North Carolina School.
From late in the first quarter through the early stages of the second quarter, Droney scored 17 straight points for the Panthers and personally turned a 12-8 deficit into a 25-20 lead. Cornell never threatened again as Sewickley Academy won the Section 4-A game 62-47.
Last night in Pa.
