All-Ohio Finishes Strong on Day Three of EYBL

Day three of the EYBL brought 3 more quality opponents for All-Ohio Red and an opportunity to match their session #1 record of 4-1.  Right out of the gate at 8:00am, All-Ohio matched up with New York's Metro Hawks. Red got out of the gates quickly by scoring on their first 2 possessions, and would carry the momentum for the remainder at the half (27-15). Although the game tightened, All-Ohio held on to get the 62-54 win. Terry Rozier and Elijah Macon paced All-Ohio with 16 points, followed by Leroy Alexander (10), Jordan Potts (7), Kenny Kaminski (7), Teddy Hawkins (4) and Jalen Robinson (2).

Game two pitted All-Ohio Red against Team Final, a U-16 team playing up.  Don't be fooled by their age, Team Final is a solid squad. All-Ohio got off to a solid start and was up 30-20 by half time.  Once again, Red had a let down and allowed Team Final to make a mini run.  However, All-Ohio hit a couple shots, took back the momentum, and went on to win 61-51.Teddy Hawkins was the high man for Red with 13 points, followed by Terry Rozier (10), Leroy Alexander (8) Terry Rozier (7), Jalen Robinson (7), Jordan Potts (7), Elijah Macon (6) and Kenny Kaminski (5).
