Playing without Villanova bound Ryan Arcidiacono, the PA Playas have rallied to make the quarter-finals of the consolation bracket at the AAU Boys’ Basketball National Championship in Orlando, Fla.

This evening, the PA Playas knocked off Wisconsin Playground Elite on Saturday night to earn a spot in Sunday’s quarterfinal at 4 pm. Kennedy Chukwuocha, Tyler Katz, Brendan Kilpatrick and Aaron Morgan each scored 16 points to lead the team.

If the team wins Sunday’s quaterfinal, they’ll advance to a semi-final later tommorrow night for a chance to play in the tournament’s 15th place game on Monday morning. There are 160 teams in the 11th grade Division 1 bracket.

Earlier today, the elite Bucks County based team knocked off Team Georgie Elite, 66-54 behind guard Aaron Morgan’s 29 points. The Council-Rock North guard received offers earlier this month from University of Maryland – Baltimore County and Fairfield. Brendan Kilpatrick added 14 and Reading Central Catholic’s Donovan Jack scored 11. The 6’9 power forward has an offer from LaSalle.

Arcidiacono remains sidelined with a sore back, but head coach Gene Rice said the Neshaminy point guard has been “a great leader from the bench.” He averaged 20 points a game as a junior for the Redskins.
