Buckeye Prep Takes 7th Grade Championship

Sean Taylor's 7th Grade Buckeye Prep team held off a determined Ohio Varsity squad to claim a 38-37 win and the championship of the All-Ohio Super Sixteen tournament. Although Ohio Varsity jumped to an early lead, Taylor adjusted with a full court zone press that lead to some turnovers and buckets which allowed them to trim the margin. At halftime, Varsity was up 22-21. The final outcome of the game was decided when Kevin "Sticks" Fisher stepped to the free throw line with 9 seconds left with the score knotted at 37-37. After sinking 1 of 2 freebies, Fischer put Buckeye Prep ahead for good. Buckeye Prep was led by Kevin Fisher, Jason Lewis and Trey Avery. The main guys for Ohio Varsity were Tyrone Cherry, a 5'9 guard from Groveport, Loyd Chapman, a 5'3 PG from Reynoldsburg and Tony Anderson, a 5'11 c from Berry Middle School. The MVP of the tournament was Kevin Fisher, and the All-Tournament team consisted of Jalen Lewis, Isaac Anderson, Chris Cook, Tyrone Cherry and Loyd Chapman.
