Rams jump out on Wolverines, hold on for big W; Showdown with Wayne up next

Trotwood superb frosh getting it done

If you attended the sold out Trotwood - Dunbar game,  you started to see the future of basketball in the Miami Valley.

  And in one word, it's looks bright.

 But on this night, the Rams young guns came out firing and put on a offensive display to upend the Wolverines  @ Dunbar 82-72.
   The Rams were led by Freshman Guard Amari Davis and Sophomore wing Myles Belyeu (Son of former Miami Redhawk Scott Belyeu), as they controlled the game, put the Rams ahead early 22-12 & was able to set the tone.

Davis, the wiry strong 6'3 lefty,
 was sensational, from start to finish.

   Dunbar got back in the game in the 2nd, and was only down by a few as Senior Wing Terrance Landers Jr. (Purdue signee) got hot and lead the Wolverines to a comeback, seemingly setting the stage for a big 2nd half.

   However Trotwood continued to play great ball, as Davis and the Rams made play after play after play.

     After a foul filled late 3rd period, the Rams had pushed the lead up to double digits, and had all but taken the drama out of the game.

   The Wolverines made a run late, but poor Free Throw shooting didn't help Dunbar's (7-5) cause.

  The Rams never looked rattled in the game, and to have the moxie to go into the toughest place to play in Southwest Ohio and get a W?

  Big for the Rams, who now move to 12-1.

  The win now sets up a major showdown against the Undefeated Champs (Wayne) next week.
