Last night Moeller made a statement by dominating one of our top 5 ranked schools in Division 1, La Salle 59-43. La Salle was hot early on and jumped out to an early lead, but the Moeller offense lead by Max Land quickly came storming back to take over the game. While Moeller and La Salle shot the ball comparatively well, it was Moeller’s aggression at the rim and rebounding that won them this game. In fact, Moeller did not make a 3 pointer all night, while La Salle shot 7-17 from behind the arc. Moeller earned their points the good ole-fashioned way, inside the paint and at the free-throw line. Moeller shot 21-25 from the charity stripe, 19-32 from inside the arc, and also gathered 9 offensive rebounds. This team may be the most well-rounded team in the state, and they will not be easy to take down come tournament time.
Max Land was the star of the night. The 6’4 guard’s aggression ultimately made his night, as well as his teammates’, a lot easier. He went 8-10 from the free-throw line and totaled 22 points, while also adding 7 rebounds. The way Max played last night could have him being an instant impact at St. Francis (PA). Max is currently ranked #7 in our 2020 class.
Will McCracken was a force on the boards last night. He managed a double-double with 12points and 12 rebounds. The #18 ranked player in our Ohio 2021 class was reliable inside the paint. He went 6-8 inside and tallied an astounding 6 offensive rebounds. Will has multiple Division 1 offers already, but as he continues to develop his perimeter and ball-handling skills I expect more offers will continue to make their way to him.
Logan Duncomb started the game off with an easy 2-hand flush. The #3 ranked player in the Ohio 2021 class continues to improve and show why he has received offers from the likes of Stanford, Ohio State, VT, Indiana, Xavier, and more. The 6’9 center has good footwork in the post and is an efficient scorer. He had 9 points on 3-4 shooting while also tallying 3-3 from the charity stripe. Foul trouble restricted some of his time, but when he’s on the court, the paint is on lockdown.
Moeller is on a 16 game win streak and will look to continue their D1 state dominance heading into tournament time.
