Weekend Recap: Dunbar hits 100, Wayne wins again, Ponitz defeats Taft

Here's the recap of last weekend, which sets up a couple huge match-ups come Friday.

Top Headlines:

Dunbar hits century mark, cruises with "Audience" 

The Wolverines put together their most explosive game of the season by routing Ponitz 100 - 58.

     In case you don't remember the last time these two teams played they had to play with the "No Audience" rule because of fighting from kids up in the stands.
Well, this game had plenty of fans and it benefited Dunbar greatly as they scored early and often.
    Dunbar had 5 players in double figures, led by Terrence Landers 23.
  Ponitz had 3 players in double figures, led by Myles and Sealey, who had 14 each.
Dunbar moves to 7-1 heading into showdown with Thurgood on Friday.

Ponitz defeats Taft with late comeback
   Ponitz defeated Cin Taft 59-53 on Saturday night as
Cincy Taft AD Chuck Richardson and Head Coach Dwayne Hansbro reunited rivalries, just on a different level now.
 Richardson was a star at Dunbar while Hansbro starred at Colonel White.
  Richardson felt like his Taft boys would have a "good chance at winning"....And they did until the final quarter, when Ponitz locked down Taft for only 5 points en route to a decisive 15-5 win in the 4th, and the difference in the game.
   Scott led the Panthers with 23 and Cooks had 19.

Thurgood holds Stivers to 35 points 
 Thurgood stifled the Tigers to 35 points, as the Cougars won 55-35. Thurgood had balanced scoring, with five guys scoring at least 9 points in the game, led by Hoskins Jr. 12.
 The Williams duo (Isaiah and Joey Jr.) combined for 24 of the 35 points.
 Thurgood is now 6-1, setting up the crucial game at home on Friday night

WayneTrain wins another one led by Rodrick Caldwell

Wayne defeats Massillion, moves up USA Today ladder 
     The Wayne Train continued to steamroll up the National Charts with a 65-58 win over Massillion in the Scholastic Play by Play in Wilmington, Ohio.

     Rodrick Caldwell, the Bowling Green commit, won the MVP of the Tourney, as he led the team with 17.
  After the nearest rankings, looks like the Wayne Train is headed for the top 10, as they sit at #11 in USA Today HS Rankings.

Xenia wins in OT
 The Bucs continue their solid play with a OT win over Lebanon 72-64. Xenia now is 14-3 & 5-1 in GWOC play; The Bucks had 5 players in double figures, led by James 21.

Trotwood bounces back, smacks Piqua 

     The Rams  promptly dusted their young selves off and got back to the business with a 87-74 win over Piqua.  After falling to Nationally ranked Wayne, it was a wonder to how the Rams would respond. And respond they did, as they move to 16-2.

   Wilmington thumps Middletown

  Wilmington  continued their excellent play with a 82-57 win over Middletown, who, before the game, looked to be on the upswing.
After losing to Moeller, Wilmington was able to get 2 victories last weekend and get back on track.

Centerville shocks the "Field" - again

    In a season that the Springfield Wildcats thought this might be their year, it has been a series of heartbreaking losses, and none more hurtful then the last one to Centerville.
Springfield held a small lead going into the 4th (50-47) but simply could not contain Keegan Saben, who exploded for 36, and simply, could not be stopped. His ability to get to the basket and the foul line was too much for the Wildcats. Danny Davis dropped 22 for "The Field."
