John Clayton: Friends' careers nearing end

Kennard-Dale's Devon O'Kane and Susquehannock's Chloe Mistovich grew up playing AAU basketball together.

JOHN CLAYTON
Daily Record/Sunday News


Before they became standout players at neighboring high schools - and two of the area's top girls' basketball players - Devon O'Kane and Chloe Mistovich were friends, bought together by their passion and penchant for the game.

O'Kane, a forward at Kennard-Dale, and Mistovich, a guard at Susquehannock, played AAU basketball for eight summers together. They traveled around to tournaments together. They roomed in hotels together. They forged a friendship.

On Saturday, the two seniors will share the court for likely the final time - this time as opponents - when Kennard-Dale meets Susquehannock at 2:30p.m.

"We actually just talked the other day about the game," O'Kane said. "Just about how it's the last time we'll be together on the court."

The pair have been linked by basketball since the fourth grade. O'Kane was looking for a team that summer and joined the one Mistovich was already a part of.

The two have played together every summer since, first for the York Unity and then, this past summer, for the Keystone Force.

It helped, of course, that they meshed well on the floor. Mistovich handled the ball, while O'Kane lurked in the post. "Our pick-and-roll was the best," O'Kane said.

Away from the court, the bond began to grow. The two rode to games together. They hung out at each other's house.

And while the rigors of prep basketball and high school in general have given them less time to hang out, they still

keep in touch with occasional texts and Facebook messages.

"Especially during basketball season," Mistovich said. "We'll send each other a text just to see how things are going."

There has been plenty to talk about recently. The two players' seasons have followed similar arcs.

Both are among the YAIAA's top scorers. Mistovich (16.5 points per game) ranks third in the league in scoring; O'Kane (15.3) ranks fourth.

Both are key cogs on teams with District 3 playoff aspirations. Kennard-Dale is 7-3 heading into tonight, while Susquehannock sits at 6-5. (The Warriors won seven games all of last season.)

And both could certainly use a victory on Saturday.

That's where it gets tricky. Since she's been at Susquehannock, Mistovich has never beaten Kennard-Dale - a fact that has spawned a bit of banter the last few days.

At game's end, it won't make much of a difference. All that will be left are two friends, bought together by all those summers spent on the basketball court.

"I told her, 'This is the last time we'll ever be on the court together. You better not laugh at me when I cry.'" Mistovich said. "She said 'No, I'll probably be crying, too.'"
