Folks, we’re getting into some rarefied air here.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the York College men’s basketball team is on a run of historic proportions.

For the first time in the 49-year history of the program, the Spartans have started a season at 13-0.

They’re one of just four unbeaten teams in all of NCAA Division III men’s hoops. That covers more than 400 schools.

Robert Griffiths boy's basketball tournament

YORK — Speed and athleticism were the keys that helped the York Catholic High School boys’ basketball team dismantle previously undefeated Danville, 61-34, Wednesday night at York Tech.

The Fighting Irish (4-2), the defending champions of the Robert H Griffith Holiday Classic, lost some talent from last year, but it didn’t look like it vs. Danville, setting up a rematch in the final Thursday against Bethlehem Catholic.

“They played pretty good half-court defense, so we had to work, but I felt like this was the best game that we played so far,” Catholic coach Blaine Claiborne said. “We just want to win every game that we step on the court. My guys, we have fun, but we just try to take care of business.”
