In counting down the days until Friday, opening night of the boys basketball season, here's a By The Numbers preseason glance. Enjoy:

3 ... Penn Wood players on East Stroudsberg's roster next winter. Patriots senior Malcolm Richardson, who will carry the scoring load for Penn Wood, will have a full ride to the Division II school in 2012-13. The others at ESU are Duane Johnson and Will Brown.

6 ... Schools in Delco with new coaches. They are: Academy Park's Allen Brydges, Delco Christian's Don Davis, Haverford's Keith Heinerichs, Haverford School's Henry Fairfax, Radnor's Chris Monahan and Ridley's Mike Snyder.

7 ... Big-school state championships won by Chester. Still, the Clippers never have won back-to-back PIAA crowns. The reigning champs take a 26-game winning streak into Friday's opener.

11 ... Coaches in the Central League to pick Lower Merion as the favorite to win the league crown. The one who didn't? Lower Merion coach Gregg Downer, who opted against singling out any team in particular.

78 ... Student-athletes who tried out for Garnet Valley's basketball team, a program record according to Jags coach Joe Rapczynski.

109 ... Days until the PIAA Championships, at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center.
