Adena 44 Chillicothe 78 a final

… My first “eyes on” either the Cavs or Warriors – Coach Huffer’s boyz are my #1 for a reason – they will put the 2 best players on the court whenever they play a team from Southeast Ohio this season – Brandon Noel/Jayvon Maughmer … the duo combined for 38 points without playing out the 4th period … Adena is a well coached/balanced offensive team – as different players scored just not nearly enough … tough to be in the game with the Cavs while you turn the ball over 24 times which the Cavs quickly turned into 24 points in the transition game … the closest thing to this one being “a game” was the first quarter which the Cavs led at the end 13-11 but as I look at the napkin stats the first qtr. had the “script” for the rest of the game – with the CAVS simply turning the “volume” up to Spinal Tap Volume at 11 : the Cavs turned Adena over 5 times in the quarter/ Cavs “D” was in the pockets of the Warrior players – cue up Vincent Roper/Kamron Smith / Brandon Noel 4 points on the blocks (6 in the quarter) / Cavs had 2 buckets off of steals in transition … Adena stayed within 2 by knocking down 2 triples (Cade McKee/Brandon Smith each 1 trey in the quarter) … going into the 2nd period Adena continued to play a balanced game – knocking down 2 triples (Logan Bennett/Preston Sykes) a couple 2 point buckets from Dillon McDonald enter the Cavalier “D” – CHS forced 6 more turnovers 4 transition buckets …Adena put up 13 points in the period but Brandon Noel 11 points on his ball for the quarter to match the Warriors O … add in 4 points each from Smith/Roper both in transition/fastbreak offensive plays …

Cavs 36 Adena 24 at intermission … a side bar … with the quickness on D that the Cavs have at ALL positions the Cavs seemed to be in front by 2-3 possessions 4-6 points … the D turns a team over a couple trips down … you look at the board and CHS is now up 12-15 points – excellent D that puts a lot of pressure on the perimeter – Roper/Smith/Maughmer/Noel/Beard – you can’t relax on any of them or the ball is going the other way … the 3rd saw more of the same only we saw MORE of the same 5 AHS turnovers , the Cavs D shut down Adena for the first 2 minutes before the Warriors scored in the 3rd in the meantime Jayvon Maughmer made his presence felt as he added an open court transition slam as part of a Cavs 9-0 run in that 2 minute segment… 5 Cavs buckets in transition for the quarter/ 2 Maughmer transition dunks …Chilli outscored Adena 20-8 in the quarter game set and match as the Warriors would not reach the 56 total at the end of 3 by the Cavs … Cavs 56 Adena 32 after 3 … for good measure Coach Huffer put in subs midway through the 4th … Joel Barnes knocked down 2 treys/ Eli Taylor added 2 triples of his own both hitting for 8 points each in the 4th off the bench … for the Warriors Logan Bennett (8 pts in the quarter) and Preston Sykes (1 three ball in the final period) closed out the scoring for AHS …

… 78 points in a game some would describe as “not a clean” game by the Cavs … “in your hip pocket D” … when Noel gets the ball on the blocks – it’s 2 ( so much improved over last season imo – his footwork outstanding, gets his body squared to the hoop/very few off-balance shots) … Noel plays the entire floor – offensively and defensively – a BIG with ALL of the intangibles that make him a “next level” player … Roper last season was not a factor offensively – this season he’s a double-digit scorer (he gets to the rim AND more importantly he creates offense from his D – he’s a keeper) … AND I haven’t even said anything about Tre Beard and Jayvon Maughmer !!! – both are as we already know outstanding at both ends – Maughmer is a long 6-5 …his length gets his hands on the ball defensively – steals/tipped passes – and he finishes at the rim … Tre B IS now 5-9, 5-10 ! he is a deadly spot-up shooter from the perimeter ( picked up 2 player control fouls that sat him the biggest part of the first and part of the 2nd quarters) … the Cavs ARE my #1 … a BIG matchup for the Cavs will be 12/28 vs Zane Trace … a must see game in SEOhio for sure …
