Tuesday Scores:

Geovonie McKnight
Ohio's number one team goes down, by 20! Pictures from the upset 
  • Middletown 65 Moeller 45: The Crusaders are undefeated no more, the state's top ranked team lost convincingly at the Miller gymnasium tonight. Geovonie McKnight was spectacular, scoring 24 points (10-12 FT's) and grabbing 10 rebounds while Kirby Wright scored 20 points and also had 10 boards. Geovonie is just such an athletic and intense presence that he wins most matchups off sheer intimidation. McKnight and Wright were two possessed players tonight who refused to allow their team to lose, in a game that Middletown controlled from start to finish. Vincent Edwards, a freshman forward, is not quite there yet offensively but his 6 rebounds were huge in helping Middletown establish a physical presence. Moeller was not able to overcome the fierce pressure of the Middies and execute their offense all game as Charlie Byers was held to 7 points and Alex Barlow 2. McKnight was all over sharpshooter Ben Galemmo, only allowing him to make one three pointer. The only bright spot tonight for Moeller was the play of sophomore wing Josh Davenport. Davenport scored 17 points (6-8 FG's and 5-5 FT's) and grabbed 8 boards. CPHR has seen Moeller live three times this year and every single time Davenport seems to have improved dramatically. Look for him to continue that strong play in the tournament and to take it to another level during the AAU season. The crowd stormed the court at the conclusion of this game, which was the Middies 7th straight win. Coaches beware, the Middies will be a tough out in the upcoming tournament.
