|2021 Cincinnati royals-Blue|
Despite missing 3 key players, including starter AJ Braun, Coach Dave Ducco’s # 5 ranked 2021 Cincinnati Royals Blue squad opened the Bill Henley Memorial Run N Slam 1-0 after a 72-18 win over the Gym Rats 2021-Dream Big. The Royals rode a “total team effort” to erase an early 5-0 deficit and go on to get the lopsided victory. Playing for the Royals this weekend is big Wil Sizer, who formally ran with Marty Finta’s All-Ohio Red squad. Sizer will add lost post scoring and rebounding to an already solid team.
In terms of other Ohio-based teams, All-Ohio Gold, Pro-Bound 2021 and Hidden Gyms-Black are also 1-0, while NW Ohio, Hardwork Basketball, All-Ohio Red, Hidden Gyms 2021, Ohio Hoopsters-Cook, Ohio Stampede, Ohio Varsity/Shooting Stars, and Ohio Hoopster-Tillman are all 0-1 after Friday action. We hope to follow all of the Ohio teams during the course of the weekend.
