New Boston 64 Trimble 53 a final

New Boston 64
Trimble 53 a final

… the D4 district games have by far been the most entertaining thus far – excellent basketball game between 2 teams who will be back next season for a possible “do over” rematch in D4 district play … BOTH TEAMS are young, New Boston losing 6-7 senior swing/post player Tyler Caldwell … Coach Howie Caldwell’s Tomcats return their top 7 players … good stuff …

… Both TEAMS big men in the middle led their respective teams in the opening quarter of action … for the Tomcats 6-0 Big Man freshman Blake Guffey got it done down low for 11 points while New Boston’s BIG Kyle Sexton matched the tally of 11 first quarter points mainly from outside the paint – Sexton went 3/3 from behind the arc in the 1st … both teams turned their opponent over in the opening period – NB with 6 turnovers/Trimble 4 … Trimble 15 New Boston 13 after 1 … in the 2nd NB increased the pressure going to their man to man D – forcing 5 Tomcat miscues while taking better care of the ball only 1 TO for the Tigers in the 2nd … scoring for THS was spread among the masses – Jeremiah Brown with 5 pts/Cameron Kittle 5 pts … both with a trey … Trimble went 2/3 from three point land … the Tigers got their role players involved as freshman guard Grady Jackson picked up a 3 ball/ freshmen PG Jerome McKinley added 4 points, Sexton picked up 4 points all from the FT stripe … 6-7 Caldwell added a deuce … both teams matched their opening quarter scoring numbers New Boston 26 Trimble 30 at intermission … through 2 quarters the Tigers were geared to stopping the Tomcat floor leader Brayden Weber – only 2 FTs after a half of action … the 3rd was not much better for Weber as the quick lefty was only able to put up 1 fg /4 points for the game … with Weber being hounded by Jerome McKinley , Blake Guffey picked up the slack offensively adding 7 points in the 3rd with 2 points each by Sawyer Koons & the Weber 2 … New Boston defensively showed a 1-3 zone with Mckinley going man on Weber … the D held THS to 11 third quarter points while NB was able to add 18 to the scoreboard – 5 Tigers contributed on the offensive end … Grady Jackson 5 pts/Marcus Saunders 4 pts/Jerome McKinley 4pts/ Sexton with 2 and a triple by Tyler Caldwell … the Tigers were chasers for most of the first 3 periods finally catching THS for the first time 33-33 with 5:34 in the 3rd … then 36-36 with 3:51 on the clock … NB closed out the 3rd topping out an 8-5 Tigers run to finish the 3rd … New Boston 44 Trimble 41 after 3 … the final quarter was all Tigers – defensively Caldwell blocking multiple shots down low , while the 6-7 swing man got into the paint for 7 points to pace the Tigers on a 20-12 run in the 4th … led by the defense – Jerome McKinley got NB the separation they needed on back to back transition buckets to push NB out to a 48-41 lead with 6:56 to play … the Tigers never gave up the lead … leading 55-46 with 4:07 to play … stretching the lead to 13 points 59-46 at 2:29 … 61-46 with 1:51 to play Tigers … Trimble got 6 pts from Blake Guffey in the 4th and a couple of 3’s from Brayden Weber – too little too late as Marcus Saunders for NB added 6 pts (4/4 from the line) and 3 from Sexton to seal the deal and the Tiger’s appearance in regional play for the first time in 60 years … New Boston 64 Trimble 53 a final …

… pretty good birthday present for Coach Cox – a District Championship for the Tigers and a trip to the Sweet 16 … great defensive effort in taking Brayden Weber out of the game offensively – excellent defensive effort from Jerome McKinley on Weber … forced the rest of the Tomcats to matchup offensively with the Tigers 4 on 4 … making it “a my 4 vs your 4 game” – Tigers win that matchup – as size does eventually matter … the Tigers take on the winner of Fisher Catholic vs Berne Union both beatable opponents imo … an opportunity to get into the Elite 8 in D4 in regional play …

The best matchup and what ended up the best game I saw this past week of Basketball :30 … New Boston vs South Webster D4 District Semi at the Convo …the 2 teams played a triple overtime thriller in the regular season that the Jeeps won 63-61 … Sunday afternoon at the Round House both teams were at full strength which showed as both teams opened the game on fire – as all of the “pieces” showed up in the scorebook : the Tigers were led by 6-7 Tyler Caldwell’s 11 points on 3 triples and a deuce … off the bench Marcus Saunders added 6 points, PG Jerome McKinley 4 pts & the big man in the middle Kyle Sexton chipped in 2 pts … on the South Webster side of the scoreboard the marque post player for the Jeeps Shiloah Blevins led the SWHS scoring with 8 pts, Tanner Voiers 6, Brayden Bockway 3, & Jacob Ruth added 3 … the 2 teams combined for what has been in the D2/D3 games 3 quarter scores ! New Boston 23 South Webster 20 end of 1 … the So Webster defense tightened in the 2nd as the Jeeps only allowed the Tiger offense to put up 3 fgs on the napkin stat sheet – Tyler Caldwell added 4 pts in the quarter (what proved to be his final points of the game – all in the first half of action … So Webster brought in Andrew Smith off the bench the junior throw in 2 triples as the Jeeps went 3/5 from downtown in the second …Blevins had 2 putbacks buckets for 12 points in the half (ironically the 4 points in the 2nd qtr were the big man’s last 4 points of the game) … South Webster went into intermission with a 4 points lead South Webster 37 New Boston 34 at the half

turnabout is fair play as NB was able to pressure the Jeeps perimeter shooters – SW went 1/6 from behind the arc as Smith added his 3rd triple in 3 quarters with the only other points coming from Trae Zimmerman’s 2 and 4 points from Tanner Voiers … New Boston got points from role players a big time 3 ball from Marcus Sexton, a quarter ending transition bucket from Jerome McKinley … New Boston 46 South Webster 46 end of 3 … the 4th quarter was as tight as it gets with the Jeeps putting up fgs – 5 points each from Voiers/Smith (each with a deep trey) along with buckets by Zimmerman/Bockway … the Tigers of Coach Cox countered from the line going 13/14 from the line with their only fgs from Saunders/Grady Jackson … 6:04 in the 4th the Jeeps were up 49-47 … NB by the 2:14 on the clock had taken the lead 55-54 … the Jeeps continued to put NB on the FT line – the Tiger to a man were clutch down the stretch … Kyle Sexton was a perfect 6/6 … Jackson 2/2, Saunders 2/2, McKinley 3/4 … :40.1 New Boston 59-56 … :13.1 NB 61-58 … Brayden Voiers took the ball to the hole for two 61-60 Tigers … 2 FTs ended the scoring and the game … New Boston 63 South Webster 60 a final …
