Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Mychal Johnson has St. Joseph back in a familiar spot.
    
Johnson scored 23 points to lead St. Joseph to a 63-31 win over Tucker County in the Class A semifinals Friday.
    
Top-seeded St. Joseph (24-1) can earn its record fifth consecutive Class A championship on Saturday against No. 3 St. Marys.
    
St. Joseph is tied with the Mercer Christian teams that won titles from 1999-2002. Summers County in Class AA holds the all-classes mark for consecutive crowns with five from 2007-2011.
    
Mychelle Johnson and Griffin Dempsey had 12 points apiece for St. Joseph.
    
Fourth-seeded Tucker County (20-6), trying to reach the championship game for the first time since winning three straight titles from 1996-98, committed 32 turnovers.
