Boys and Girls Basketball Gear Up for OHSAA Tournaments

Two regular season games remain for each team
Location: Bishop Watterson High School
Date & Time: Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m.
Coach Phillips reaction to the Lions tournament draw, “We got a unique draw in our division. Some teams made some interesting choices ahead of us and as a result, we were able to avoid the top 5-6 seeds. Having said that Watterson is a storied program, well coached and we have to go on the road, but our first two possible games turned out better than we probably anticipated.”

Girls Basketball – OHSAA Division II, Region 7, Round-One
Matchup: Bexley Lady Lions (11-11) vs Highland Fighting Scots (14-8)
Location: Sparta Highland High School
Date & Time: Monday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m.
Coach Baugh’s reaction to the Lady Lions tournament draw, “We got a tough but winnable draw in the tournament. We are the 11 seed and we open at 10th seeded Highland. They are a good team but it is a game if we play well, we have a chance to win. IF we win that game we play 6 seed Beechcroft. Beechcroft is a team that has a great record, but they have not played as tough of a schedule as we have, so again, if we play well we can win. If we win there, there is a good chance of playing Whitehall for a third time. They have beaten us twice, but both times the games were close in the second half.”
Matchup: Bexley Lions (11-11) vs. Beechcroft Lady Cougars (18-3)
