Max Hassell was the high scorer tonight for Clark.
Clark 62 North College Hill 56: The Cougars defended their home court, and clinched their division of the Miami Valley Conference, with an impressive win over the NCH Trojans. Junior guard Max Hassell was excellent for Clark tonight, scoring 19 points and controlling the tempo of the game with his crafty ball-handling. Junior big man Paul Woodson added 10 points and 10 rebounds and was the most active defensive player on the floor. North College Hill got 19 points from senior wing Greg Sevilla. Sevilla was strong attacking the basket, particularly in transition, and finished two breakaways with ferocious dunks. Senior forward Vincent Edwards added on 10 points in the loss for NCH. NCH will now take on Summit at home Friday, the final home game for their nine seniors, needing a win to tie Summit for the division title. Clark proved tonight that Hassell and Woodson are solid and when they get buckets from Al Upshaw and CJ Taylor they can be a very good team; their combination of intensity, athleticism, and depth is going to be a lot for D3 teams to handle in the tourney.
