Day 1 at the All-Ohio Nike Cup

  • All-Ohio Grey: Up and down day for AOG as they played their first tournament at the 17u level. Grey went down to a very big and talented West Virginia Wildcats team led by Columbus Northland's Devon Scott and a couple of Huntington Prep post players. Grey struggled inside against taller opponents with star posts Jackson Lamb and Vitto Brown missing. AOG was led by the play of Edmund Early (SG Thurgood Marshall), Clemmye Owens (SG Toledo Rogers), and Deonte Cole (SF Toledo Central Catholic).
  • All-Ohio Purple: Another undefeated day for Purple as they turned in dominant performances led by CJ Gettys (PF Findlay), Willy Moore (SG Aiken), and Gary Akbar (SF Dayton Dunbar).
  • Last night CPHR had a chance to catch some games at The Cincinnati Knights Shootout. At the 17u level the Knights (Black team) defeated a solid Team Kentucky squad behind the play of Aiken '13 SF Mikey Thompson. Mikey has really been working on his ball-handling and shooting and as he continues to put the mental aspect into his game he could skyrocket up the rankings. The Knights also got good play from their big men Zach McCorkle (Winton Woods), Avery Barnes (Lockland), and Randale Griffith (Shroder) as well as PG Bubba Hill (West High). At the 15u level the Knights team went down to an older Team Kentucky squad but CPHR came away impressed with the outstanding athletic abilities of Trevon Hudson (SF Colerain). Hudson, as he develops his ball skills, will be one to watch in this class; his athletic ability might be tops in the city regardless of class.
