The Samangy brothers from Central Valley realize their dreams of collegiate basketball

Editor’s Note: This article is part of a weekly series that the Beaver County Times will publish every Tuesday called “Campus Report,” in which sports reporter Barth Upadhyaya will meet former Beaver Valley High School stars who are now in college ranks.

After years of patiently waiting for their turn, it’s safe to say that Dom and Gabe Samangy haven’t come to the conclusion of their high school basketball career that they envisioned.

It was the winter of 2017, and a pair of Central Valley High School seniors — and a twin — were injured. Dom suffered a ruptured ACL in the Warriors’ first fight of the year against Lincoln Park. Gabe missed a good portion of the time after separating his shoulder in the team’s opener versus Westinghouse and hasn’t been healthy all year.
