Just returned from Wright State University where I was covering the Division III boys basketball tournament, a.k.a the North College Hill Invitational, for the Enquirer.
In our feature game, Madeira lost to a good Versailles team which shot a blistering 68% from the field and 57% from 3-point range.
Even if the Tigers can match that shooting performance, they're still likely to lose in the next round.
O.J. Mayo is apparently recovered from the pneumonia which caused him to miss the Trojans' first two tournament games. He scored 31 points and was 5-for-8 from 3-point range.
Bill Walker added 29 points including a handful of highlight-reel dunks. He also hit a 40-foot shot at the end of the first quarter.
NCH beat Bloom-Carroll 94-54. Next up - Versailles. Yawn.
Kudos to the Bloom-Carroll student section for starting the predictable "We don't recruit" chant.
Here you go ...
