Friday Scoreboard

Lancers junior guard Connor Speed
scored 19 points in the win over Moeller
The LaSalle Lancers made a great closing statement for the CPHR Division I Poll regular season championship with an outright GCL title, while Middletown took care of business in the GMC for an outright title, in a busy night of Queen City hoops......
  • LaSalle 42 Moeller 34: The Lancers left no doubt that they are the top Division I team in Cincinnati as they clinched an outright title in the GCL-South with a road win to spoil the Crusaders senior night. LaSalle used an 11-0 run early in the second quarter to build a lead, behind perfect 4/4 three-point shooting of junior guard Connor Speed (who finished with 19 points in the game), extend it to double figures, and hold on to it for much of the third quarter. Moeller slowly mounted a comeback before a Josh Davenport layup made the score 33-32 LaSalle with 4:37 left in the game. From there the Lancers would re-turn up the defense and not let Moeller score again until just :12 remained on the clock. Senior guard Josh Lemons led the defensive charge for LaSalle, while tallying 11 points in the game, and helping earn another championship in his storied career. Moeller really struggled offensively again against the Lancers and could only get going in the second half by posting up junior guard Keith Watkins, who was Moeller's only double figure scorer with 13 points in the loss. 
  • Middletown 45 Colerain 42: A big third quarter run helped the Middies overcome a halftime deficit and clinch the GMC title outright with a win at Colerain. Sophomore forward Vincent Edwards recorded 20 points and 12 rebounds in the championship win, while senior guard Geovonie McKnight added 17 points of his own. Colerain was led by the 13 points of junior guard Bryan Porter.
  • Mason 61 Oak Hills 45: The Comets couldn't grab a share of the GMC, as Middletown just needed a win for an outright title, but they clinched second with a nice road win. Senior Darrin Harris, a forward, was the most productive player with 25 points. 
  • Lakota West 68 Hamilton 46: Junior guard Ali Barnes came off the bench to score 22 big points as West finished the GMC run tied for 2nd place with Middletown. 
  • Princeton 62 Fairfield 52: Senior guard Nate McGill was the surprise hero with 22 points for the Vikings in a win that gave Coach Anderson his 10th GMC win his first season as coach. Fairfield was led by the 19 points of senior guard Kyle Smith.
  • Winton Woods 86 Northwest 74: The Warriors avenged their only league defeat behind the 24 points and 13 rebounds of junior forward Trent Donald, the 15 points and 8 assists of sophomore PG Ronnie Rousseau, the 19 points of senior post Zach McCorkle, and the 16 points with 13 rebounds of junior forward Kwan Cheatham. In a high scoring game the Knights were led by the 23 points of junior guard Ramar Hairston. 
  • Lakota East 65 Sycamore 41: Junior guard Robbie Harpring led the Thunderhawks with 12 points in the league win. 
  • Roger Bacon 47 Badin 42: The Spartans, in a rebuilding year, clinched another outright GCL Central title behind the play of sophomore guards Austin Frentsos and Cody Neisen. 
  • West High 59 Aiken 48: The Mustangs defeated Aiken in what turned out to be the third place game in the CMAC standings behind 20 point performances from senior guards Darrell Bullock and Lionel "Bubba" Hill in their last home game. 
  • Withrow 45 Hughes 43: The Tigers staved off a Big Red comeback to hold on to 2nd place in the CMAC, with their only losses coming to Taft. 
  • Summit 61 CHCA 40: The Knights finished off an undefeated MVC season with the win.
  • Taft 95 Shroder 48: The Senators finished off another undefeated CMAC season behind the interior scoring of senior post Adolphus Washington against a depleted Jaguars frontline. 
  • Lockland 81 North College Hill 73: The Panthers pulled the upset behind the play of junior wings DJ Wingfield and Dylan Wedlock. 
  • Turpin 68 Wilmington 50: The Spartans finished in 2nd place in the FAVC-East with a blowout win at Wilmington behind the 15 points of Jordan Croop and Adam Boyer, the 12 points of Mitch Stevens, and the 10 points of sophomore guard Zach McCormick.
  • St. Xavier 65 Elder 56
