Jackson 44
Sheridan 59 a final

… entering the final game of district play at the Convo the Sheridan Generals , the #1 seed out of the Logan D2 Sectional, could only be viewed for what they are – one of the complete teams in the SE District : a floor general in Ethan Heller G/PG , PG Costa Coconus, size in the paint Luken Hill (6-5)/Grant Heileman (6-7) … a swing man in Landen Russell (6-1) who is strong in the paint, a solid defender on the perimeter/rebounder … off the bench MORE size in 6-5 Adam Boyle /6-3 Ethan Malone/6-2 Nate Johnson … not many teams in any of the division can match that mix on TEAM … ALL quality TEAMs that expect to go deep in the post season MUST have “THAT” player – their “go to” guy, a player who can “go get” points, who is calm under pressure/who answers the oppositions run with a big bucket on the perimeter, in the paint, at the FT line … yeah the Generals have one of those players – Ethan Heller …

… the Ironmen of Coach Morrow came to play ! opened the game going 5/5 from behind the arc vs the Sheridan 3/2 zone – Caleb Wallis with 1/ Nevan Yates 2/Cooper Donaldson 2 … while Sheridan went where we in the Cheap Seats figured they would go – to the bigs in the paint … in the 1st quarter it was 6-5 jr. F Luken Hill taking the ball to the rim for 7 points to keep the Generals above water with the JHS perimeter assault … Heller added 5 points on a trey and pair of FTs … Jackson 19 Sheridan 12 end of 1 … adjustments … basketball IS a game of adjustment – the JHS perimeter shooting took SHS out of their zone … the Generals went man to man in the 2nd … the Ironmen picked up an early transition bucket by Cooper Donaldson to put JSH up 21-12 … the Ironmen never scored again in the quarter … 0/5 from beyond the arc, didn’t get to the line … the Generals went on a 10-0 run to finish the 2nd … 5 more points for Heller (three ball #2) … Luken Hill/Branden Russell each picking up put back buckets in the paint … Sheridan 22 Jackson 21 at the half …

Jackson was unable to establish a perimeter game again in the 3rd 0/3 from three point land … Cooper Donaldson led the charge into the paint as the senior forward attacked the rim for 6 points … PG Caleb Wallis added 2 points/Treylan Davis 2 points from JHS … Ethan Heller matched JHS as he had 6 more points/Costa Coconus added the difference in the quarter splashing a triple … Sheridan 35 Jackson 31 end of 3 … the 4th and final period saw the Ironmen’s Caleb Wallis drill a pair of threes only to be matched by the Generals Heller’s 3 triples … Heller put up 13 points in the 4th to go with Luken Hill’s 4 points in the paint … Generals heading to the Sweet 16… Sheridan 59 Jackson 44 a final

Pfloyd’s Official “unofficial” Napkin Stats – Jackson

Scoring … Cooper Donaldson 16, Caleb Wallis 12, Nevan Yates 6, Treylan Davis 5, Evan Spires 3, Caden Donaldson 2
3 Pointers … 8/20 … Caleb Wallis 3, Nevan Yates 2, Cooper Donaldson 2, Evan Spires 1
FTs ….. 4/13
TOs …. 13
PnP …. 7 fgs/14 points in the paint
PnT …. 2 fgs/ 4 points in transition

… no quit in the Ironmen … Caleb Wallis along with ALL of the Ironmen went full go for 32 minutes … size does matter – it showed …JHS had to expend so much energy to get a board … no real answer defensively for Luken Hill in the paint … only 14 points for JHS in the paint, the points needed to come from the perimeter – once Sheridan went man to man the open looks on the perimeter disappeared and the scoring in the paint was not how the Ironmen were going to be able to live in this one … great season, excellent game … on an ending note we got a glimpse of NEXT years Ironmen as freshman Evan Spires drained a 3 ball from the right wing to end the JHS scoring … Wallis/Donaldson, Drew Bragg/Evan Spires, Treylan Davis, Braxton Hammond – the Ironmen will be back in contention for Elite 8 status again next season …

Fairfield Union 69
Sheridan 61 a final

PFLOYD1 made it’s way up Rte 33 to the Lancaster-Dixon Line tonight to take in the battle between the FU Falcons vs the Sheridan Generals … I needed to give the pfloyd “eye test” to both of these Logan D2 Sectional teams as well as having Sheridan in the top 8 teams I wanted to see how the Generals compared to the other top 8 teams in the rankings … besides it’s always good to see old friends from FU – smeltzy, Coach Helber for FU , Ryan Montgomery the FU Athletic Director …

SCOH50’s Power 8 Rankings for South Eastern/South Central Ohio

SCOH50’s Power 8 Rankings for South Eastern/South Central Ohio
As of Dec 16th (open for debate and I know it will be debated, it’s still early and a lot of basketball to be played)

  1. Vinton County (6-0) – guard play is very good on this team, can score from deep, their length on perimeter causes problems
  2. Portsmouth Notre Dame (6-0) – size inside and guards that can pressure 94 feet and score the ball3.
  3. Lynchburg-Clay (6-0) – best player in the area who does it all, and her teammates have been playing well
  4. Sheridan (4-1) – have several players can get it done for them, its early for them
  5. Unioto (5-1) – one of their better teams, nice guard combo and their post player inside just knows how to score
  6. Eastern Brown (7-1) – they have the guard play and pressure the ball and control tempo, and not clicking well but by the
    tourney they will have it ironed out
  7. Waterford (5-0) – they are young and lost a lot last year but this they are well coached and it shows in games
  8. Alexander (6-1) – led by 2 seniors who have played in big games, their role players play well of the two seniors and have
    two nice freshmen that contribute

Right there waiting (it’s a long season)

  • Circleville (5-2) – has the interior game, and once they get all their pieces back will be a team who can make that run
  • Washington Court House (4-2) – a team that has two guards that play, one has deep range. have a very good post player that
    scores the ball
  • Meigs (6-2) – surprised by this team this year, they are getting it done
  • Wheelersburg (6-2) – another team that pressures you 94 feet, two guards that can fill it up, plus two more that knock
    shots. lack of size, but rebound as a team
  • Minford (5-1) – been on a streak after losing to burg, guards have been very effective getting the ball inside,
  • Peebles (4-2) – they have one kid that will score the ball, they are long and athletic, play tough defense

others to watch: Fairland, Ironton, South Point, Belpre, Miami Trace



Pfloyd’s Elite of Southern/SouthEast Ohio – Week#.5

Pfloyd’s Elite of Southern/SouthEast Ohio – Week#.5

… I usually wait to put out the first edition of the Elite 8 until after the first full week of games BUT as I was recording scores & game results the majority of the teams Below the Lancaster-Dixon Line played this past weekend ! as the Pre-season picks are a good starting point for the rankings there ARE teams who are lower than they should be, teams which are higher than they should be … it usually takes a couple of weeks to get teams where they should be in the rankings … I feel pretty good about the pre-season rankings though as some game results solidified the team rankings ie. Chesapeake#16 beat #15 Piketon by one … Eastern Brown#13 beat #20 Whiteoak … New Boston #28 lost a close one to #29 South Webster AT South Webster … then the surprises #66 Lucasville Valley knocked off #34 Adena , #72 Rock Hill smoked #54 Wellston … it’s early in the season with lots of hoops to be played …

… let’s look at the first Official Elite 8 after Week #.5
