|All-Ohio Grey won their division of the Nike Cup in Columbus this weekend.|
- All-Ohio Purple had another undefeated weekend behind the play of tourney MVP Tommy Kreyenhagen (Summit SG), Willy Moore (SG Aiken), Gary Akbar (SF Dayton Dunbar), and CJ Gettys (PF Findlay). Purple defeated a very talented West Virginia Wildcats team to win their division of the Nike Cup.
- All-Ohio Grey went 3-0 on Sunday to take their division of the Nike Cup. AOG got strong play from tourney MVP Deontae Cole (SF Toledo Central Catholic), Clemmye Owens (SG Toledo Rogers), Dominique King (SG Maumee). The surprise player for Grey was new addition Edmund Early Jr a 6'1 combo guard from Thurgood Marshall. "Junior" was stellar all weekend and was the leading scorer, and spark off the bench, in two games on Sunday. AOG got up and down play from Tyonte Robertson (PG Aiken), but Tyonte really turned it up on Sunday and was efficient running the point and scoring the basketball for Grey.
- The Queen City Prophets 15u and 17u teams got off to a tough start as they were unable to advance out of very difficult pools down in Tennessee. The bright spot for QCP was the play of their 16u team, who got second in their pool before losing in the quarterfinals. The 16u Prophets went 3-2 on the weekend with one of the wins being an upset of a very talented WorldWide Renegades (GA) team and one of the losses being a competitive game against one of the circuit's premiere teams the Atlanta Celtics. QCP got production from Josh Davenport (SF Moeller), Tim Coleman (PG Withrow), and Cortez Adams (PF West High) for the tourney.
Cincinnati Knights Shootout:
- As expected both Cincinnati Knights 17u teams flexed their muscles and advanced, undefeated, to the title game, setting up a rivalry game showdown. The Knights "Black" team then pulled an upset of Semaj Christon's (PG Winton Woods) Knights "Gold" team. The Black team got great performances by Randale Griffith (PF Shroder), Bubba Hill (PG West High), and Mikey Thompson (SF Aiken).
- GameTime Magic has their first title of the spring by defeating Mark Minch's (SF Lakota East) Columbus Mustang Ballers team, who has plenty of good scoring guards. GTM also defeated the Cincinnati Lakers 16u team, who is now much better with the return of Trent Donald (PF Woodward) from Ohio Basketball Club. The Magic were led by the scoring duo of Malcolm Smith (SG Princeton) and Deontez McGee (SG Norwood) as well as the inside play of Tank Young (C Princeton) and Chris Connell (PF from Lakota West who has transferred to Woodward).
The Bearcat Classic:
- Ohio Basketball Club swept through the field en route to a title performance. OBC's stars led the way as Cleveland's Elijah Brown, Tony Farmer, and Damonte Flannigan turned in strong outings to go along with Kevin Johnson (PG Summit) and Devin Williams (PF Withrow).
