Wayne continues to roll; Key Games tonight

Here's the recap of the top teams and how they fared during New Years Weekend:

UD bound Landers skying for 2 in Arby's Classic

Wayne Train wins Arby Classic; Landers wins MVP

 The Wayne train continued the unbelievable run by winning the 33rd Annual Arby's Classic in Tennessee last weekend.
The Warriors became the 1st team from Ohio to win the prestigious event.
    Trey Landers, the UD signee, was the MVP of the tournament.
    In the championship game vs Tift County (Georgia), Wayne held a 10-point lead (32-22) at half after spurting late in the second quarter.
     In the third quarter Wayne outscored Tift 21 - 4 en route to an easy victory 72-47.  Landers was dominant in the tournament and led a balanced scoring attack with 16 and 5 boards, Rodrick Caldwell had 17 and L'Christian "Blu" Smith added 13 in the championship game.
  Tift head coach was quoted as saying, "We got outhustled, outcoached, and out executed" by Wayne.
   Tift (Ga) falls to 12-1 while the Wayne Train sits at 7-0 .
    Wayne coach Travis Trice Sr felt that his boys played very well and repped the 937 with honor, bringing back the trophy no other Ohio High School was able to do.

  Salute the Wayne Train for bringing back the gold. Look for them to be in Top 10 of the USA Today.
 They are that good.

Dunbar heads to Ponitz for key City League Game tonight
Can Cook keep up the hot shooting for Dunbar?

  Dunbar will look to find its rhythm after a 2-game losing streak as they head to Ponitz to face the Panthers.
   Ponitz (4-2) has played well of late, stifling Oakwood late to grab a huge comeback win.
   While Oakwood is no Dunbar by any stretch of the imagination, the Panthers are seemingly finding their rhythm, unlike Dunbar.
   Dunbar (5-4)  has lost a little more than expected with talented guards AJ Harris and Dorianne Dawson taking their talents to college. While the stable is full of players, who will be the ones to consistently step up for the Wolverines as the season starts to gear up for the tournament?

  This will be the first time that new Ponitz coach Dwayne Hansbro will face the Wolverines.
    Hansbro has his boys playing hard and has adjusted well in the early season; can they pull off the upset tonight at home vs the Mighty Wolverines?

 Xenia                @   Springfield
Beavercreek     @   Trotwood
Cin Winton Woods  @ Meadow dale
Centerville       vs  Alter
