Sectional tournament preview

On Thursday, February 23 the Spartans (6-16, #26 seed) begin their Sectional tournament journey at Hamilton High School.   Tip-off is 8:00 pm.

There they will take on the Princeton Vikings (13-9, #5 seed) from the GMC where they finished in fourth place.  Players to note on the Vikings include 6’8” Junior forward Darius Bazley (Ohio St. verbal commit), and 6’3” Junior guard Darweshi Hunter who is second in the conference in scoring at 17.5 points per game.  Bazley leads the GMC in blocked shots, assists and rebounds.

If the Spartans are victorious, they will face the Colerain Cardinals (3-19, #29 seed) on Tuesday February 28 at 8:00 pm.  The Cardinals play in the GMC as well – in fact one of their victories was against Princeton.  Should the Spartans beat Colerain, they will undoubtedly face a rematch with the LaSalle Lancers (19-3, #2 seed) on Friday, March 3.  The Lancers face a fairly easy draw, first facing #31 seed Winton Woods on Thursday, then #29 seed Western Hills on February 28 should they knock off the Warriors.  Link to the draw: http://swdab.org/Boys%20Basketball/bbb_xu_div__i.htm

Matchups for other ECC teams are #7 seed Walnut Hills which faces the winner of #13 Fairfield/#20 Sycamore, #22 Anderson taking on the winner of #9 Withrow/#24 Milford, #14 Glen Este takes on #17 Middletown, #18 Kings vs. #15 Amelia, and #19 Loveland faces #21 Edgewood.
