Central Ohio Middle School All-Star Game Recap

Team Red
The second game of the Central Ohio Middle School All-Star Game pitted the 8th grade Team Blue versus Team Red. Not only did Team Blue get on the board first, they ran out to a 12 point lead in the first half. Just when you thought this one was over, Team Red made a furious run to cut the lead to 30-28 with 2:45 left in the game. Although it intially looked like the game was going to be a blowout, Red came all the way back and went to win 32-30. Red was paced by Lamont Martin and D.J. Tyree, both of whom finished with 6 points. Canal Winchester’s Elanta Moore added 5 points.  Monroe’s Elijah Barber was impressive for, as he led Blue in scoring with 12 points. Behind him was JaQuan Harrison who finished with 6 points.

Team Purple
The final game of the event featured a showdown between team Purple and Team Black. As was the case in the earlier game, Team Purple jumped out to an early lead (17-10 at the half), only to see their lead cut late in the second half. The architects of Black’s run was Hilliard Weaver’s Michael Simon, who scored 7 straight points at one point in the game, and Groveport’s Tyrone Cherry who went to work off the dribble with several nifty ono-on-one moves. With the standout performance of Woodward Park’s Nateshawn Hargrove, Purple was able to pull out a 46-33 win. Hargrove finished with a team-high 13 points, followed by Quincy Storey (11), Anthony McKee (8) and Jaisen Johnson (6). As a side note, the matchup between Cherry and Storey was a good one, and will likely play out many times by the end of their high school careers. Look for many of these players at the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase at Central Crossing HS next Sunday!
