- Withrow 80 Troy 70: The Tigers got things going offensively from the opening tip as Kevin Jones came out knocking down jumpers, Aaron Thomas was getting whatever he wanted, and Devin Williams was abusing his man down low. Withrow led by seven points at the end of the third quarter and seemed to be in control, until Troy senior wing Lance Carter (who scored a game high 27 points) got hot and kept Troy in the game. Withrow just simply had too much firepower for the Trojans to keep up with however. Withrow is playing extremely well right now and if Devin Williams continues to knock down mid-range jumpers they will be very tough to beat. For the game Thomas finished with 25 points, Williams 23, Jones 15, and Carl Porter added 7 points and 10 rebounds. CPHR was also impressed with the clutch play of junior guard Kendall Beamon, who hit two big jumpers, and the activity of junior forward Tyler Jordan; both of these players helped the Tigers advance to Wednesday's regional semi-final at Cintas.

- Lakota East 48 Princeton 36: The unfortunate thing about the fifth, and final, game on Saturday at Dayton was that a Cincinnati team had to lose. The really unfortunate thing for Princeton fans is that it was them, it seems like this year East really has their number (this was the Vikings third close loss to East this season). In a game in which the two teams knew each other so well that both teams got off to slow starts offensively until the mid second when guards from each side started to heat up. The score was 30-29 in favor of East heading into the fourth, and then Princeton just lost control of their offensive flow. RJ Leppert (15 points), Jalen Goodwin (12 points), and Mike Boyd (6 points and 4 dimes) all made several key plays down the stretch to seal the deal for the Thunderhawks. The other bright spot for East was the interior play of undersized senior forward Brian Evans, who manhandled Viking players inside, and seemed to grab every big rebound. Princeton, who had won three consecutive district titles before tonight, was led by the 10 points of Malcolm Smith and the strong play of sophomore point guard Dorian Jordan. Lakota East advances to play Westerville South at the Columbus Fairgrounds in the Columbus regional semi-final on Thursday night.
