Sun, 26 Mar 2017 00:04:13 GMT2017-03-26T00:04:13Z

HERSHEY, Pa. - Minika Glenn knew she would have to wait her turn. So, for three years, the Neumann-Goretti guard did just that. She sat on the bench and watched the Saints dominate, going 88-2 in that span, capturing Catholic League and state titles in the process.

When Cherokee boys' basketball coach Eric Cassidy was asked to be the head coach of the West squad for Sunday's Albert J.
