St V Trailing Trotwood 48-46 in a great game. 5:33 to go.

St V has defeated 2 of the D1 semi finalists. St Eds and Massillon Jackson. They also lost to Cleveland VA St Joes.

Both these teams are 20 points better than Wauseon or Eastmoor

Co players of the year in D2 in that one. Patton had 34 in the loss for Trotwood. Graves had 22 in the win for St V. He had been shutout in the 4th until he hit the buzzer beater at the rim. Very tough shot. Lebron buying some new shoes !!

2nd time in 3 years that Eastmoor has lost in the state semifinals after winning the Athens regional, while Wauseon advances to play Akron St.Vincent-St.Mary for the D2 championship. Wauseon's last trip to Columbus was in 1994, when they beat Ironton in the semifinals. I believe that same school year Wauseon also beat the Fighting Tigers in the baseball state semifinals.

Can Fairland end the drought of SE teams losing in the state semifinals?.......since 2010, these SE teams have lost in the state semifinals......2010 Chesapeake, 2011 Portsmouth, 2013 Ironton, 2013 Warren, and 2016 Lynchburg Clay. Portsmouth was the last SE school to win a game in the state semifinals when the Trojans beat Ottawa-Glandorf 74-66 in the 2012 D3 semis.

Since the OHSAA started the 4 division system in 1988, no D3 school from the SE district has ever won the state title. In fact, only Unioto in 1991, Wheelersburg in 1995, Ironton in 2005, and Portsmouth in 2012 have won their state semifinal game. In the state championship game, the Shermans lost to Haviland Wayne Trace, the Pirates lost to Orrville, Ironton lost to North College Hill, and Portsmouth lost to Cincinnati Summit Country Day. Portsmouth won the state title in 1988, but was D2 and won the Dayton regional.

Even considering teams outside the SE district, the Athens regional winner has not fared well in the state semis. D2 Zanesville lost in 2010, Bishop Ready and Harvest Prep lost in 2014, Eastmoor in 2015 and 2017, Walnut Ridge in 2015 and Wellington lost in 2016. New Concord John Glenn did win the D2 state title last year coming out of the Athens regional, while Chillicothe won the D2 state title coming out of Athens in 2008. Oak Hill and South Webster won the Columbus regionals en route to their state titles in 2009 and 2006, respectively.

Halftime of First Division 4 game:

Lutheran East 16
Delphos St Johns 13


This game following the Trotwood v St V game makes a good argument for always following the 4-3-2-1 order for the State Tournament.

I still can't believe trotwood lost. I honestly didn't think they'd have a game under 20. Heck I thought they'd win D1 easily too.

VA St Joseph's 73
Fairland 50

Unfortunately this wasn't really a competitive game as Fairland was never really in it past midway 2nd quarter. After watching Akron St V yesterday dispatch Trotwood and seeing the fact that VA St Joes had defeated Akron St V during the regular season..... this conclusion seemed probable.

Nothing to hang your head about though. Great season and all 5 starters have eligibility left.

Great season Dragons!

Our Southeast Crew had the D2 finals this morning. If you are unfamiliar with the way the OHSAA assigns referees to the State Tournament--- our district gets 3 based on a proportion formula. And since we seem to always get 3 it makes sense they work together when they are here. Last year it was 3 different guys but they also had the D2 final (John Glenn v St V)

This year it was Kevin Schwartzel, Brian Phipps and Kyle Gilmore.

They called 24 fouls. 13 and 11. No one had more than 3 fouls

D4 Finals. Wellington 22-7 vs Lutheran East 19-9

Wellington looking for their 1st title. (3rd appearance and 1st final)

Lutheran East looking for their 2nd Title (2005 won 2-0 over Africentric in forfeit). Jim Liggins is an answer to a great trivia question from that 2005 game -// scored 42 in the title game (which is the record in D4) and Technically scored 40 more than his team did.

Dustin Harder for Wellington tied a State record in the Semifinal win vs Lima Perry with 21 Rebounds. He ironically ties Dave Gray of Arcanum who had 21 rebounds vs Portsmouth Clay in 1969

Cleve VA St Joseph v St Bernard Roger Bacon

VA St Joes defeated the D2 champs St V 57-56 and the D4 Champs Lutheran East 68-66

They are making their 5th straight appearance in the finals and have won 2 and lost 2 of the previous 4. The State record for consecutive appearances is 6 (Cleveland East Tech 58-63). Their toughest game in the tournament thus far was their District Semi vs Beachwood (63-58)

They are looking for their 7th Title just like St V this morning.

Roger Bacon has won 2 Titles (82,02) and has been here 3 of the last 4 years.

Both of these teams lost to Lima Central Catholic in the State Tournament in 2014 and 2016. Roger Bacon lost to LCC in the semis and VA St. Joe lost to LCC in the finals
