Wednesday night basketball action at Centerville High School did not disappoint. Wayne defeated Beavercreek 53-49 and Fairmont knocked off Butler 64-53 to setup a matchup between the winners Saturday night. All night, several players impressed me, and many of the teams played different styles of offense. I take a look back at my notebook and share a scout’s thoughts on the night.

Beavercreek- The Beavers gave everything they had against a tough Wayne team, falling 53-49 in their sectional matchup. Coach Mark Hess’ team played strong fundamental defense that created headaches for Wayne early on. James Hymes (2019) and Yousef Saleh (2020) were great on the ball defenders and made Warriors guards change their style of play after struggling early on. Chris Herbort (2020) was impressive to me as he played much different than the last time I saw him. Previously a 3 Point specialist, Herbort played much more aggressive during the game, beating his man off the dribble and scoring more in the paint and in traffic than behind the arc. Overall, this Beavers team has good talent returning in Saleh, Adam Duvall (2022) and Isaiah Moore (2021) to build around.
