Highlights: Reading High turned up the defensive pressure in the second half, forcing 16 turnovers to blow past Wilson 59-38 at Santander Arena and earn a return trip to the Berks Conference championship game.

The top-seeded Red Knights (20-3) led by just two points after a first half that was played at fourth-seeded Wilson's pace.

The Knights forced four straight turnovers to start the third quarter, igniting a 10-0 run that put them in command the rest of the way.

Reading will face Berks Catholic in title game Friday back at Santander Arena.

Khary Mauras, who along with Damon Stern spearheaded the defensive assault, scored a team-high 16 points for the Red Knights.

Isiah Cook had 13 points and Lonnie Walker IV had 10 points and seven assists.

Christian Sload led the Bulldogs (15-8) with 16 points.

It was Reading's third win over Wilson this season, each by 20 points or more.
