New Boston 69
Berne Union 64 a final

… what a great game to watch from the Cheap Seats ! the Tigers go 10/18 from downtown … Berne Union 7/21 from behind the arc … 17 threes between the 2 D4 semi-finalists !!! The Rockets came to play with SIZE, SIZE and more SIZE … great game plan – simple game plan “We’re bigger/stronger … put the ball down low in the hands of the BIGS on the block … go down low to set up the 3 ball – Zane Mirgon (2)/ Levi Ross (2)/Brock Unger (2) /Chaz Dickerson (1) … so many offensive boards for the Rockets … BU seemed to be able to do anything/everything they wanted – on the blocks, perimeter scoring WITH the bigs , controlling the boards … turning the Tigers over (5 TOs in the first period) … BU put a 25 spot on the scoreboard in the 1st period ! Zane Mirgon (10pts) / Brock Unger (6pts on a pair of treys)/ Chaz Dickerson (3pts on a triple) / Baron Sullivan (4 pts) & Chase Blevins (2pts) … outstanding all around quarter by the Rockets … the Tigers were led by Marcus Saunders 7pts and 3 pointers by Saunders/Jerome McKinley & Grady Jackson … Berne Union 25 New Boston 15 after one … in the 2nd New Boston found the range from behind the 3 point line trading 2 pointers by the Rockets for 3 balls for the first 6:18 of the 2nd outscoring BU 14-8 to pull to within 4 pts 29-33 BU with 1:42 on the clock … in the final 1:42 the Tigers broke lose on a 12-0 run led by guard Malachi Potts’ 8 points including a 3 point bankshot from 30 ft as the buzzer sounded ! when the dust had cleared the Tigers of Coach Cox had drained 6/9 triples in the 2nd quarter … 9/15 in the first half … what had been a BU 8 point lead with 3 minutes to play in the 2nd quarter ended with NB having one upped the BU 25 point quarter putting 26 points on the board in the 2nd taking an 8 point lead of their own into half time … New Boston 41 Berne Union 33 at intermission … the last 3 minutes of the 2nd quarter might have broken many opponents … BU however brought out the D – turning the Tigers over 5 times in the 3rd … while adding 3 treys of their own in the quarter (2 by Levi Ross) and another by Mirgon (his 2nd of the game) … the big man in the middle Jacob Harmon controlled the paint with 2 putback buckets … NB seemed to try to shorten the game, running more clock with each possession … putting the ball in the hands of Sexton/Caldwell out on the perimeter – resulting in 5 NB TOs and a BU transition bucket … what was Tiger momentum going into halftime … the Rockets took away in the 3rd as BU inched closer … New Boston 54 Berne Union 49 after 3 – game on … at 6:38 in the 4th NB led 57-49 on a Tyler Caldwell old fashioned bucket & 1 in the paint … by 3:13 BU had cut the lead to 55-61 mainly from the FT line with the clock stopped – BU went 7/8 from the line in the 4th … on the other end BU put the Tigers on the line … NB made it interesting down the stretch as they hit only 7/14 from the line in the 4th … at 1:03 NB led 63-60 – a one possession game … FT’s by Jacob Harmon made the score 63-62 NB with :48 to play … Tyler Caldwell knocked down 2 FTs :43.3 NB 65-62 … Caldwell to the line again hits 2 of 2 to give the Tigers a 2 possession lead 67-62 … BU’s McCartney on an uncontested drive the length of the court NB up 67-64 with :16 to play on the clock …Kyle Sexton 1/2 from the line with :12 on the clock … 68-64 Tigers … a BU turnover … Jerome McKinley sealed the Tigers win with 1 for 2 from the line to end the scoring … New Boston 69 Berne Union 64 a final …

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 …

… D4 vs D3 … Blevins vs Holden … the Jeeps vs the ‘Burg … it doesn’t get any better than that … the Burg came into the game undefeated while the Jeeps were “staying afloat” 5-5 … SW’s marquee player in Shiloah Blevins was in his 2nd game back from injury while the burgs Tanner Holden, arguably the best player in SEOhio no matter the division, entered the contest averaging 29 ppg with a 50 point game on his resume’ this season … how could this one NOT be a good game ?

Athens 49-39 “the Pfloyd tour”

… good game at McAfee tonight … thanks for the seat on press row 93Bulldog ! got to sit with the Stewarts, talked some hoops both boys/girls with Mrs Stewart – good people … not sure what to make of Alexander – as 93bulldog posted – the Spartans got out rebounded BIG in this one especially down the stretch after Alex had fought back from being down 34-22 with 2 minutes and change to play in the 3rd following the Bulldogs 16-0 run to open the 3rd period … lots of nice pieces but both times I’ve watched the Spartans the script has been the same – good 1st half and disappeared in the 2nd half … the Spartans vs Vinton County AHS scored 42 first half points but managed only 19 in the 2nd half holding on to win by 1 … vs Athens the Spartans were up 22-18 but only scored 17 points in the 2nd half – this time losing by 10 points 39-49 … JK Kearns is an excellent pg for the Spartans – had 13 of Alexanders 17 2nd half points … Athens went 7 deep with 6 bulldogs getting in the scorebook … Alexander played 8 only Kearns reaching double figures with his 24 pts … Athens played solid defensively allowing Alexander only 5 fgs in the 2nd half while “showing” the ability to score from the perimeter (Athens) with 6 perimeter fgs (4/13 from downtown) … reached the FT line for 18 attempts knocking down 11 … Alexander on the other hand was only 5/6 from the FT line … the Spartans were unable to get into the paint consistently vs the Athens zone with only 6 fgs in the paint – the 6-11 Terry getting shutout on the night while his counterpart for Athens Justin Hynes showed up big in the 4th getting 6 points for the Bulldogs after Alexander had fought back to tie the game 34-34 with 6:10 to play … Athens gets the “W” at home with physical play/boards/FT’s/balanced scoring …Athens 49 Alexander 39 the final …

Jackson 62 Washington CH 55 OT … a final

Jackson 62
Washington CH 55 OT … a final

… got my first look at the Jackson Ironmen Friday night vs the Blue Lions of Washington CH – I wasn’t disappointed – an excellent basketball game … 2 very good basketball teams … for Court House , Coach Scott has the Blue Lions believing in themselves as a basketball team – coming off a big win over his mentor Coach Huffer & the Cavs of Chillicothe Tuesday night , the Lions were taking on their 2nd top 8 team in less than a week vs the Jackson Ironmen … for the Ironmen of Coach Morrow trying to put down the upstart Lions & hold serve at home to get to 4-1 for the young season … the game opened ALL Lions, specifically ALL Blue Lions Dillon Stewart – quick off the dribble, deadly from beyond the arc, stifling defender (doing my best Oscar from the movie Armageddon – “so yur’ saying pretty much an all around special player …” … Stewart made the Ironmen pay dearly in playing the 2-3 zone vs the quicker Lions … Stewart LED the Jackson team 13-11 after the first quarter … the BL team in the 1st had doubled up on the I’town boys 18-9 with a 3 pointer from Evan Upthegrove – at one point in the first and the beginning for the 2nd the Blue Lions (Stewart/Upthegrove) drilled 5 straight triples (Stewart 4/Upthgrove 1) with Blaise Tayese doing what he did to Chilli Tuesday night – got to the rim – for a 2 pointer… the Ironmen kept in contact with their outstanding offense trio – Cooper Donaldson/Caleb Wallis & big man Treylan DavisWashington 18 Jackson 11 after 1 … if you watch “good” basketball & “good” basketball teams playing in “good” basketball games you will see the “little” adjustments made by coaches DURING the game 


Logan 56 Chillicothe 50 a final

Logan 56
Chillicothe 50 a final

… a good game tonight in Logan as the Elite 8 #1 Logan hosted #5 Chillicothe … the Cavs got their trio of offensive threats on the board early in the first quarter Jayvon Maughmer with 7 pts/6-7 Brandon Noel 3/Tre Beard 3/ and a bonus fg by Vincent Roper 2 pts … Logan countered with Bo Myers 5 pts/Wes Brooks 4 … all eyes were on the match-up of big time swing men in Maughmer vs Bo Myers … both guarding each other for the 4 quarters … Logan 9 Chillicothe 15 after 1 … Logan used pressure man 2 man defense for the entire contest picking up full court … the game stayed mainly a 1/2 court game in the 2nd period both teams having to run their offenses in the half court … even with the full court pressure the game was at a tempo that favored the Cavs … Logan without a true post player struggled in the 1/2 court as the outside scoring was hard to come by for the Chiefs – 3/13 from behind the arc in the first 2 periods … Myers for Logan AND Maughmer for Chilli were held scoreless in the 2nd quarter but BIG triples by Landon Little and Coby Bell for Logan closed the gap on the Cavs … Logan 22 Chillicothe 24 at intermission … quarter #3 opened with Bo Myers with a bucket at the rim … matched by Maughmer in the paint … the tempo of the game was turned up a notch as both teams pushed the ball – advantage Purple as the tempo allowed ALL of the Chiefs to find open spots on the perimeter – as the Chiefs went 4/6 from 3 point land (Coby Bell 2/Caleb Bell 1/Layton Cassady 1) in the 3rd … Chilli was led by Maughmer’s 6 third quarter points, the Chiefs Myers 8 points … Logan took the lead for good Logan 42 Chillicothe 37 end of 3 … the Cavs lost the lead but pulled within 3 at 46-49 with :52.6 sec in the game … the Cavs were led by Maughmer’s 8 points in the quarter … Logan made FT’s down the stretch as Bo Myers went 6/8 from the line/Caleb Bell added 2/3 … Logan’s last 8 points were from the charity stripe … Logan 56 Chillicothe 50 a final Maughmer vs Myers 21 to 21 for the night … round 2 at the Hat in the 2nd half of the season …
