George Tinsley’s on-court play and Ken Bianchi’s coaching led Abington Heights to the only unbeaten record in Lackawanna League boys basketball while the Comets were repeating their Division 1 title.

Those efforts also earned Tinsley and Bianchi repeat selections as the NEPABasketball.com Player and Coach of the Year for Division 1.

Scranton Prep’s Leo O’Boyle and Valley View’s Marc Kudrich were also named to the first team for the second straight season.

Corey Perkins from Abington Heights was a repeat selection to the second team.
