Tuesday Scores

Isaiah "Big Dog" Johnson's monster game
helped Walnut Hills capture the FAVC-East title
Another one point Walnut Hills victory over Turpin, an upset of CPHR's top ranked Division I team, a shocking loss by the FAVC-West's top team, and a statement win by the GMC's surprise team of the year highlight today's action.....

  • Walnut Hills 53 Turpin 52: For the second time this season Walnut Hills beat the Spartans by a single point, as they got a stop by blocking a Zach McCormick shot at the buzzer to hold on. In a game that the Eagles led narrowly throughout the inside presence of junior post Isaiah Johnson was just too much, as the 6'9 center tallied 24 points, 12 rebounds, and 6 blocks in the win. Turpin refused to go away down the stretch as McCormick, a sophomore guard who scored 20 points with 9 rebounds, and senior guard Mitch Stevens, who scored 12 points, hit big shots to keep Turpin in the game; but the Spartans were unable to get over the hump and grab the lead. In a game that should clinch the FAVC-East championship out right for Walnut Hills the Eagles also got 12 points from Carlitos Anderson and junior guard Sterling Gilmore. 
  • Princeton 70 Mason 66: The curse of #1 hit hard as the Comets loss makes it much more difficult for them to win the league. The Vikings led all game long and were able to hold on with clutch free throw shooting, even though they were without two top players in the injured Malcolm Smith and the ill Dorian Jordan. Senior guard Deion Isham continued his great senior season with a game high 22 points in the win, while fellow senior Nate McGill added on 15. In the Mason loss senior wing Darrin Harris led with 20 points while senior guard JD Sprague tallied 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists. 
  • Northwest 76 Winton Woods 64: The Warriors took a shocking division loss as they could not stop the hot shooting of a talented, and rapidly improving, Knights team. Northwest got a balanced scoring attack with senior wings Quez Evans and Chazz Gwinn in double-figures, along with junior guard Ramar Hairston. 
  • Fairfield 70 Lakota West 59: Playing without their big enforcer, senior center Brandon Murphy, the Indians found some extra offense and were able to outscore the Firebirds on the road. Seniors led the scoring as forward Keon Bejamin scored 24 points, wing Jeff Woods scored 19, and guard Kyle Smith added 16. West, who was only down five heading into the fourth, got 18 points from junior wing Monty Boykins, 14 points from junior guard Ali Barnes, and 13 points from sophomore guard Tyler Williams
  • Middletown 45 Lakota East 35: Geovonie McKnight scored 20 points while sophomore wing Vince Edwards added 12 points and 12 rebounds in a great Middie defensive effort to get the win, and take the lead back in the league with a Mason loss. Junior guard Robbie Harpring scored 12 points to lead East. 
  • Moeller 58 Dayton Carroll 51: The Crusaders were outscored by 10 in the second half but still held onto win behind the 17 points of junior wing Josh Davenport. 
  • LaSalle 63 Chaminade Julienne 45: Junior guard Connor Speed scored a career high 25 points, while senior guard Josh Lemons scored 17 as LaSalle got the road win. Senior forward John Staley led CJ with 17 points while sophomore wing Justin Bibbs scored 16.
  • Summit 73 Seven Hills 37: The Silver Knights got off to a slow start but turned it on over the last three quarters to remain undefeated.
  • Kettering Alter 58 St. Xavier: Jake Lavarie scored 21 points and Jaaron Simmons scored 20 as Alter pulled the upset. The Bombers were led by the 11 points of Ben Carroll. 
  • Colerain 51 Hamilton 43: The Cardinals outscored the Big Blue by seven in the fourth to get the win behind 15 points from Deiontay Waiters, 12 points from Bryan Porter, and 10 from Milt Davis. 
  • Loveland 77 Glen Este 71: Senior guard Anthony LaMachia hit 8 three-pointers on his way to a career high 31 points in a Loveland win. 
  • Oak Hills 53 Sycamore 42
