WILLIAMSPORT - Williamsport outscored Oldtown, 27-0, in the first quarter and ran away with an 87-28 victory Monday night in a Class 1A West region boys' basketball playoff game.
Williamsport (22-1) plays Westmar Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Allegany High School.
Williamsport has won the last three region championships, and five of the last six.
Andy Artz made eight of his nine shots on the way to 16 first-quarter points as the Wildcats put the outcome to rest early.
"We just wanted to come out and play fundamental basketball," said Artz, who finished with 20 points on 10-of-12 shooting. "We wanted to hustle on defense. We wanted to move our feet and not get lazy. I think that we're definitely ready for Wednesday."
