Saturday Night Scores....

Some results from tonight as two CMAC games ended lopsided, while one came down to the final possession, and a ranked GMC team got off to a great start............. West High @ Taft photos
Taft senior Jalean Lowe had a big scoring night

·         Taft 95 West High 66: Some early extra physical play from the Mustangs added extra motivation to Taft’s dynamic duo of Adolphus Washington and Orlando Berry Jr as they went on rampages to rout West High in the last three quarters. Washington finished with 29 points and 18 rebounds (a day after recording 20 and 19) and Berry finished with 27 to lead Taft to victory without the services of injured starters Jermaine Freeman and Dwayne Stanford. Senior wing Jalean Lowe had his scoring touch tonight as well adding 21 points and senior transfer forward Jabari Watkins added 10 and 7 for Taft. Another key to the Senator win was the quality minutes they received from role players in seniors Fred Cannaday, Ra’Saan Jackson, and Mike Barton Jr. West High was led in scoring by the red hot shooting of senior guard Darrell Bullock who finished with 29 points in the loss. Senior guard Lionel Hill added 10 for West High while senior wing Keevin Tyus was held to just 7 in the loss. The speed of Taft has just been too much for opponents thus far as West High was unable to stop the ball in transition as Berry continuously went coast to coast to score, as did Washington who even played some point in the second half.
·         Aiken 73 Shroder 29: The Falcons opened the game with a 19-4 run and never looked back as they routed Shroder. Junior wing Austin Grimes led Aiken in scoring with 17 points and 12 rebounds, senior guard Willie Moore recorded 15 points (with 7 rebounds and 7 assists), senior forward Paul Woodson had a double-double with 14 and 11. Sophomore Correy Cavins also had 11 points for Aiken while junior wing Mikey Thompson scored 8 for the victors.
·         Woodward 74 Hughes 73: The Bulldogs won the fourth quarter shootout behind the double-double outings of senior guard Eric Hill (24 and 10) and junior wing Tyrone Whithead (21 and 11). Hughes was led by sophomore wing Kevin Daniels who scored 20 of his game high 26 points in the second half in the disappointing loss. Hughes also got great scoring from junior wing Terry Cook, who scored 20 points, and sophomore PG Angel Rivera, who chipped in 13.
·         Mason 70 Lebanon 49: Senior guard JD Sprague led the scoring with 23 points in the Comets opening win.  Senior forward Darrin Harris scored 15 points and grabbed 8 rebounds for the Comets while fellow senior forward Mike Van Kleunen added 10 points in the win.

Late Update- North College Hill 70 Wyoming 36: Senior wing Jamal Ivery led NCH with 19 points in the win.


  1. what about the play of jv player dejuan sherman,who had like 30 points on taft!!!!!great game sherman!!!!

  2. sherman only in the 9th grade.....

  3. Mentioned him during the game on Twitter. Caught the whole 2nd half, he proved he's a top 9th grade guard and a future Mustang star.

    Follow us on Twitter @cincyprephoops for live "game of the night updates"

  4. Do you do any jv updates or just varsity?

  5. Twitter updates always for varsity games that I'm at. If I'm there in time for 2nd half of JV game, which I always try for and 90% of the time make it, I might post a final score or something about a player showing out if there is one; depends on level of play in JV.

    Last night at Taft the JV game was very intense with Sherman going against Taft's talented group of sophomores. Taft won by 4, not 100% sure but I think it was 4.

  6. sounds good...sherman should be in the top ten for 2015 rankings for sure...

  7. Appreciate the looks Mr. Corey
