DANVILLE (WCIA) -- Danville Area Men's Basketball defeated Parkland 78-70 in the Region 24 Tournament semifinals.
"This type of game is tough," head coach DaJuan Gouard said. "When you're playing against your rival in the semifinals it's going to be a lot of energy coming from both sides. It's a hard thing to do a lot of times because guys are forcing things because they want it so bad. But that's when you call a timeout, regroup them, go out and try to get it done."
"We've been talking about this for awhile," freshman guard Jamil Wilson said. "Parkland beat us last time on our home court so getting revenge this game was huge for us. This was something that we felt like we needed to do."
Danville Area will face John Wood in Sunday's championship game at 2 p.m.
