DeSales Wins It In Over Time

The 5th game of the Ohio Scholastic Play-By-Play Classic featured two of the state's top senior point guards in Ohio-bound Nick Kellogg (Columbus DeSales) and Miami (OH) signee Quintin Rollins (Wilmington). Both lead guards represented their team's top gun, and their prep match up will possibly be renewed in the MAC next season. The highly contested contest required 2 over time periods before a winner could determined. The game was almost over in regulation (50-50), when Kellogg appeared to hit the game-winning shot, a trey from the corner, with 3 seconds left. However, the DeSales' coaching staff called a time out with 2.1 seconds remaining, requiring the offense to reload for a final shot. DeSales finally squeaked out a 65-62 victory. The leading scorers for the Stallions were Nick Kellogg (27 pts) and Adam Griffin ( 18 pts). For the Hurricanes, Quinten Rollins finished with a game high-30 points, while Malcom Heard added 11 points. It's important to note that Wilmington was without their second best player in Jordan Berlin, a D-II Ashland commit, who was sidelined with an injury. Kellogg and Rollins shared MVP honors.
