Games to watch on this opening weekend in Cincinnati

The Ohio basketball season officially opens Friday and there are more than a dozen games scheduled for the first night of action.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the top games during this opening weekend:

Friday, Nov. 27

Ohio Valley Hoops Classic: This second annual event at Wilmington College features the top-rated player in the area (Jarron Cumberland) and some teams who will be knocking on the door to Columbus once March arrives. Watch for Chaminade Julienne against Johnstown Monroe in the 2:45 p.m. game. The Eagles were a Division III state semifinalist a season ago. Northridge plays South Ripley (Ind.) at 4:30 p.m. Northridge lost to CJ in the regional final. Mason versus Dublin Jerome at 6:15 p.m., follows that game before the heavily-anticipated Wilmington versus Cleveland Heights game at 8 p.m.

Moeller at Taft: Talk about an intriguing matchup on opening weekend. Moeller (Division I) and Taft (Division II) don’t mess around in scheduling a challenge from the opening tip. Look for Moeller’s guards including senior PG Nate Georgeton and SG Trey McBride against the Senators’ athleticism
