Flyin to the Hoop in Kettering, OH returns in January with some great teams from not just Ohio, but in the entire country. In order to cover everyone, I will be splitting the preview into the 3 sessions. Today I will look at the Monday sessions.

 

Top Players

Dane Goodwin (Upper Arlington)- Incredibly gifted and talented scorer; can attack from the perimeter or in the paint.

 

Darius Quisenberry (Wayne)- Very talented, very quick guard with great court vision and high basketball IQ.

 

Jeremiah Francis (Pickerington Central)- Physical guard; scores the ball well or finds ways to get his teammates the ball.

 

Adrian Nelson (Pickerington Central)- Lengthy wing; rebounds the ball at a high level.

 

Max Martz (Upper Arlington)- Talented wing; can finish inside or out.

 

Top 3 Games

Brush vs. Hughes– Brush has a few very talented sophomores that will look to defeat one of Cincinnati’s top D2 programs.

 

Pickerington Central vs. McEachern– After getting a tough matchup with Trotwood, McEachern will have to turn around and face an extremely talented Pick Central team. The Tigers depth could be a game changer in this one.

 

Upper Arlington vs. Wayne– Every time I’ve watched Goodwin play, he takes over the game and scores at least 20 points. I don’t expect anything different in this one. The Warriors will try and counter with several high scorers of their own.
