Another game, another (convincing) win. But don't ever accuse Chester High of failing to put on a show.

Chester got a highlight-reel slam in the final minute of Saturday's blowout win, an 86-43 defeat of J.P. McCaskey in the opening round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament. Junior Diamonte Reason, who's developed a reputation as one of the Clippers' high-flying dunk artists, threw down a one-handed slam off a feed from Darrell Nicholson. Needless to say, it was the exclamation point on Chester's rout.

By the way, it's worth mentioning that Reason spent the season with Chester's junior-varsity team and earned a call-up only at the start of the postseason.

"Diamonte always says, 'I learn from the best,' and I'm proud of him," Chester senior Erikk Wright said. "I know he's talking about me, because I do a lot of dunking in practice. But it could be any of our bigs.

"Diamonte, he's got another year left, and a lot of catching up to do, but he gets out of the gym. If you throw it up there, he'll go get it."

Chester will face Norristown Wednesday in the second round of the PIAA tournament, at a site and time to be determined.
