|OBC 2020-Adidas Chicago Classic Champions|
Dennis Barba’s 2020 Ohio Basketball Club (OBC) squad made a 5-1 run to the championship game at the Adidas Chicago Classic last weekend before being upended by the Mid-Ohio Pumas Black, another Ohio based team. OBC’s run included wins over 43 Hoops (54-42), Made Men (57-53), Mid Ohio Pumas Blue (38-35), Wisconsin Crusaders (44-35) and M33M (50-35). In the championship game, OBC went down to the Pumas 36-45. The starting lineup for OBC includes Montorie Foster Jr., Jake Younkin, Evan Prater, Ethan Morton and John Hugley. In the championship game, Ethan Morton and Evan Prater led OBC in scoring. Because we’ve not seen OBC play this season it’s been difficult to rank them; however, with their runner up finish in Chicago and some results in several out of state tournaments, it’s time to move them up. Congrats to Coach Barba, his players and parents for a nice run.
