|2024 Ohio Schockers|
The Jackson (Massillon, OH) based Ohio Shockers (2024) just completed their 2017 AAU Campaign with an impressive 27-0 overall record. Their record includes titles in all 6 of the tournaments they entered, including: The Ballers Bash (VAC), The Battle (VAC), Rising Stars Classic (Ohiobasketball.com), Massillon Challenge (Ohio Basketball.com), Akron Cage Classic (VAC), and Prime Time Challenge (VAC). Along the way the Shockers defeated teams such as SMAC-Akron-Evans, Mahoning Valley Elite, Ohio Panthers, MKU, and the Dawgs to name a few. However, they saved their best last in defeating TNBA East-Loppolo (2 championships & 4 finals this season) 49-32 in the Prime Time Challenge championship game.
Over the past 2 seasons, the Shockers have gone 62-6, with 3 of those losses coming at the hands of teams form out of state in the Dru Joyce Shooting Stars Classic. The team, coached by Jim Kish, Dan Weekly, and Chad Bailey, includes players from Jackson, Lake, Louisville, and Green. The key to the Shockers’ success is their unselfish brand of play, and the fact that each player is able to mesh well into a team concept. We would like to congratulate to Shockers on their impressive 2-year run. With that said, we would like to see them upgrade their 2018 schedule so the get an opportunity to play teams listed in out top 20 Power Rankings! Hopefully we get a chance to see them in the Buckeye Prep Invitational next year!
