Thursday Results:

Charlie Byers and Alex Barlow-  The heart
and soul of  '10-'11 Moeller basketball
Great effort by all 4 Cincy teams playing in championship games today, 2 were able to bring back trophies. Also had a couple of nice performances in the local games:
  • Moeller 36 Mountain View (AZ) 35: It was a defensive battle in the championship game at the challenge in Arizona. Moeller knocked off Arizona's number one team in their home gym to take the title. Senior guards Alex Barlow and Charlie Byers were the key players yet again as Moeller gets set to return to Ohio undefeated.

  • Dwyer (FL) 53 LaSalle 50: Lancers take their first loss of the season in the championship game at the Kingdom of the Sun Tournament. Dwyer, a top 25 team nationally, is ranked #1 in the state of Florida and has several D1 commitments on their team. Brandon Neel, the star senior guard for LaSalle, again led them in scoring but it wasn't quite enough. Neel did make the all-tournament team.

  • Taft 55 St. John's College (DC) 44: Senators take the championship at The Piggly Wiggly Roundball Classic in Charleston. Taft, who is still undefeated, beats a St. Johns team that is known for producing D1 talent year in year out. Junior power forward Dwayne Stanford was named the tournament's most valuable player and junior center Adolphus Washington won the most outstanding player award. Jalean Lowe, a junior sharpshooting small forward, also made the all tournament team for Taft. 
  • Adolphus Washington- '10 Piggly Wiggly
    Roundball Classic Tournament MVP
    Jeffersontown (KY) 86 Middletown 63: In the championship game at Gaslight Holiday Classic the Middies just didn't have enough firepower to compete with nationally top 25 ranked J'town. Jeffersontown is led by Louisville signee Zac Price a 6-10 center (who transferred out of Cleveland this year). Sounds like there might have been a little bit of home-cooking from the officials tonight but never the less Middletown takes the loss. Geovonie McKnight again led the Middies in scoring, the junior guard is really starting to stuff the stat sheet. 
  • Columbus DeSales 52 Clak 49: Free throw misses doomed Clark in the championship game of Hughes Holiday Classic. Clark stole an in-bounds pass with five seconds left and got a shot off to tie but it fell short and DeSales took the title back to Columbus. 
  • Lakota West 70 Hughes 54: It was all West in the consolation game of the Hughes Holiday Classic. Sophomore shooting guard Monty Boykins had another nice night for West, Monty is starting to gain confidence as the leading scorer of that team; other GMC coaches better take notice.

  • G. McKnight had 3 good games for
    the Middies at their tourney.
    Colerain 63 Northwest 62: Sophomore shooting guard Bryan Porter went crazy tonight for 35 points on 12-16 shooting. Porter really picked up slack with the absence of Eli'sha Campbell due to injury. 
  • Mason 53 Milford 40: Junior shooting guard JD Sprague led Mason with 16 points and junior power forward Darrin Harris added 14.
  • St. Xavier 37 Springboro 28
