 A new year, a new Chris Kuhar.

Last year, he was a re­serve on an Arch­bish­op Ry­an High School bas­ket­ball team that lost in a third-place game in the Dis­trict 12 play­offs.

This year, Kuhar is a starter on the Ro­man Cath­ol­ic bas­ket­ball team that just won the Dis­trict 12 Class AAAAAA cham­pi­on­ship.

It’s a huge dif­fer­ence.

“Last year was good, I didn’t play much point guard be­cause we had Aus­tin Slaw­ter, but I would play some,” Kuhar said. “I came here this year, and I worked my way onto the team. I had to earn my way in­to the lineup.”

On Sat­urday, he was a huge reas­on for the Cahil­lites’ suc­cess in a 68-59 vic­tor over Ab­ra­ham Lin­coln in the city cham­pi­on­ship game at South Phil­adelphia High School.

Kuhar, who was play­ing with foul trouble, scored nine points and handed out sev­en as­sists as the Cahil­lites won their third-straight Dis­trict 12 crown. Ro­man will now meet Perkio­men Valle on Sat­urday at 5 p.m. in a state play­off game at St. Joe’s Prep.


An­oth­er trans­fer, Al­len Be­trand, who at­ten­ded Samuel Fels last year, scored 12 points for Ro­man in a game that was tight at times and knot­ted at 31 at in­ter­mis­sion.

While both teams showed flashes of bril­liance, both teams had a hard time get­ting in­to the flow of things. Over­all, the teams com­bined for 49 per­son­al fouls.

The Cahil­lites were without the ser­vices of Lynn Greer, a fresh­man who saw time at point guard dur­ing the sea­son. Without him, the Cahil­lites were still in good hands.

“I’m more of a point guard,” Kuhar said. “That was my po­s­i­tion grow­ing up. I’ve played oth­er po­s­i­tions, I’ll play wherever they need me, but point guard is my nat­ur­al po­s­i­tion. It’s the one I like play­ing the most.”
