Saturday City Scores

Paul Woodson dominated
the paint tonight at Withrow
A thrilling finish at Withrow, on the night their first ever Hall of Fame class was introduced, headlined tonight's games.......Aiken @ Withrow Photos 

  • Withrow 60 Aiken 59: After a back and forth game saw Withrow take a seven point lead into the fourth quarter, that's when things got interesting. Aiken refused to go away and finally tied the game with just under two minutes to play on a Paul Woodson layup with a Willie Moore assist. After allowing a bucket Aiken came back down and Willie Moore calmly pulled up and knocked down a three pointer to give Aiken a 58-57 lead with 1:10 to play; their first lead since late in the second quarter. After a few costly Falcons mistakes Withrow ended up winning the game at the foul line as Tim Coleman knocked down two shots with just 13.6 seconds left to give Withrow the final lead, and final points of the game at 60-59. Aiken had a great look around the rim to win the game with under five seconds left but an Austin Grimes shot just couldn't quite get through the cylinder and the Tigers got the win to remain in the CMAC title hunt if they can knock off Taft next Friday. Withrow got balanced scoring from their team tonight as junior guard Tim Coleman led the way with 14, junior forward Devin Williams scored 13, senior guard Damon Gooch scored 9, senior post Rozelle Nix scored 8, and Tyler Jordan (senior forward), Tyonte Robertson (sophomore guard) and Corey Wise (junior guard) each added 6. Aiken got great production from senior forward Paul Woodson who finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds in the loss; it was Woodson's night around the rim as every hook shot or turnaround jumper he threw up found the bottom of the net. Senior guard Willie Moore added 14 points for Aiken while junior guard Austin Grimes chipped in 9. 
  • Dayton Dunbar 87 North College Hill 63: After a slow first half the Wolverines put their foot down in the second winning easily at NCH. The senior trio of Gary Akbar, Deontae "Teddy" Hawkins, and Andre Yates provided too much scoring for the Trojans to deal with as they scored 25, 20, and 14 respectively. The game's high scorer was NCH senior guard Jamal Ivery who tallied 32 points in the loss. 
  • Taft 77 Woodward 56: The Senators opened a 16-0 lead to start the game and never looked back in a 21 point victory. Senior wing Jalean Lowe led the scoring with 21 points in the win, while Dwayne Stanford and Adolphus Washington each threw down some big time dunks and finished with double figures. 
  • West High 48 Hughes 40


  1. Dwayne Wade played for Taft, now that's unfair

  2. That's what happens when you try and multi-task lol. Dwayne Stanford can jump but I probably gave him too much credit.
