In a non-conference battle that put two top teams in their respective divisions against one another, it was Buckeye Valley defending their home court and coming away with a 70-61 victory on Monday evening. Buckeye Valley did an excellent job of protecting the rim and winning the rebounding battle with their big tandem of 6’8 Troy ScowdenTroyScowden6'8" | PFBuckeye Valley | 2022StateOH and 6’6 Jacob RadcliffeJacobRadcliffe6'6" | PFBuckeye Valley | 2021OH. Those two were able to do what they wanted against the Fairland bigs, who stood at 6’3 or shorter. Buckeye Valley had very balanced scoring, as no player hit double figures until very late in the third quarter. This offense by committee gave them a lot of success as Fairland had to be worried about any one of the five Barons that were on the court scoring the basketball. For Fairland, they struggled mightily on offense in the first half, unable to create many open looks. In the second half they were able to cut the lead down to five points, but seven straight from Dylan ThompsonDylanThompson6'2" | SGBuckeye Valley | 2022StateOH in 45 seconds put Buckeye Valley back with a comfortable lead. Here were the top performers from the contest.
