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



SVC: Weekend Wrap-Up & Look Ahead


FRIDAY (Boys): Zane Trace 69, Unioto 50 … Adena 62, Southeastern 49 … Paint Valley 70, Piketon 60 … Westfall 70, Huntington 59

SATURDAY (Boys):  Adena 70, Piketon 58 … Unioto 63, Huntington 50 … Zane Trace 82, Paint Valley 61 … Southeastern 61, Westfall 55

SATURDAY (Girls): McClain 52, Huntington 48 … Piketon 60, Western 42 … Peebles 55, Southeastern 25 … East Clinton 47, Adena 34 … Waverly 52, Zane Trace 7 … Fairfield beats Paint Valley


BOYS: Zane Trace’s Cam Evans has continued his hot start as he’s scored 25, 25 and 32 points over his last three games; Adena’s Zach Fout has powered the Warriors to two consecutive wins with performances of 18 and 19 points, including three 3-point field goals in Saturday’s win over Piketon; Fout’s teammate Jarrett Garrison has been consistent with 11 points, six rebounds and eight assists in Saturday, after a 17-point performance on Friday; Huntington is 0-2 in league play but Elijah McCloskey has scored 52 points in those two outings, losses to Westfall and Unioto; Paint Valley’s Bryce Newland had a big weekend, scoring 37 points and grabbing 24 rebounds

GIRLS: Piketon’s Gracie Lightle scored 19 points in an 18-point win over Western while teammate Ally Crothers added 14; Braiden Collins had 22 points in a four-point loss to McClain while Allison Basye added 15; Paint Valley’s Olivia Smith finished with 14 points in a loss to Fairfield while teammates Kelsey Dunn and Baylee Uhrig each had 12



Zane Trace 3-1, 2-0 … Adena 2-1, 2-0 … Paint Valley 2-2, 1-1 … Unioto 1-2, 1-1 … Westfall 1-2, 1-1 … Southeastern 1-3, 1-1 … Piketon 2-3, 0-2 … Huntington 0-4, 0-2


Unioto 3-0, 3-0 … Piketon 4-1, 2-1 … Huntington 3-2, 2-1 … Southeastern 2-3, 2-1 … Paint Valley 2-5, 2-1 … Westfall 1-3, 1-2 … Adena 0-4, 0-3 … Zane Trace 0-6, 0-3


Sitting at 2-0 and atop the SVC’s standings, Zane Trace looks to be the team to beat on the boys side this season. The Pioneers, led by guard Cam Evans and stretch forward Nick Nesser, ended Unioto’s record 69-game conference winning streak Friday before dismantling Paint Valley the next night. With Colby Swain and Triton Davidson able to defend and score, and Luke Johnson acting as a deep threat, Zane Trace is confident in its ability to win on any given night. They have two winnable games against Huntington and Southeastern this weekend as they look to move to 5-1 overall and 4-0 in the SVC.

Elsewhere, in non-conference play this week, Adena travels to Leesburg Fairfield while Westfall goes to Logan Elm Tuesday evening. Then, on Wednesday, Unioto hosts Nelsonville-York in a non-league contest.

The Warriors have a talent-filled roster thanks to their leading scorer Zach Fout and sophomores Jarrett Garrison and Logan Bennett. When you add Caleb Foglesong and Preston Sykes to the fold, you get a team that could seriously contend for a league title and a district championship berth down the road … if they play to their abilities. Unioto, with senior Chance Smith leading the way, is still learning about its own identity. Without a bonafide go-to scorer, it’ll be interesting to see how the Shermans develop this year and who they’re calling upon to put the ball in the bucket come tournament time.

As for the SVC’s girls, Piketon is a team that may not be getting the credit it deserves. With this past weekend’s win, the Redstreaks have moved to 4-1 overall and are led by the likes of Gracie Lightle, Brianna Odel and Ally Crothers. They’ll travel to Zane Trace Tuesday where they should move to 5-1. Unioto is also favored in its next matchup as the Shermans travel to Adena Tuesday for a league contest while Southeastern goes to Huntington and Westfall makes a trip to Paint Valley.

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
