All-Ohio Starts Strong on Day Two of Peach Jam

Deontae Hawkins

Coming off a big win against Houston Hoops last night session two of the Peach Jam, All-Ohio began session 3 where they left off as they teed it up with the (6-9) Arkansas Wings. Although the Wings opened the game with a layup to take a 0-2 lead, Dayton Dunbar’s Deontae Hawkins came out smoking hot as he drained three deep treys to give All-Ohio early momentum.  It wasn't just treys, Hawkins had a couple of put backs as All-Ohio would go on a 17-0 run (21-4) with 10:15 left in the half.  The Wings would answer with a run of their own to cut the lead to 15-23 at the 6:02 mark, before a Jalen Robinson layup the next possession extended the All-Ohio lead to 25-15.  Another Wings run cut the lead to 4 points (26-22) with 4.50 left, but a Jake Kretzer put back put Red back up 28-22 with 3:31 left in the period.  All-Ohio would eventually take a 22-33 lead into the break.  Teddy Hawkins and Terry Rozier paced All-Ohio with 13 and 10 half time points, respectively.

Jake Kretzer was fouled shooting a trey and went to the charity stripe where he sank 2 of the3 free throws to start the second half.  The Wings came right back and hit 2 freebie of their own (35-32), and would later go on a 4-0 run before a Myles Hamilton put back at 8:15 slowed their momentum (43-35). From there, All-Ohio would maintain a 6-10 point cushion for the rest of the game, finishing with a 51-59 win. Three All-Ohio players would finish in double figures including Terry Rozier with a team high 17 points, followed by Teddy Hawkins with 13 and Myles Hamilton’s 11.  The rest of the All-Ohio scoring included Jake Kretzer (8), Jordan Potts (5), Kenny Kaminski (3) and Jalen Robinson (2). For the Wings, nationally ranked Archie Goodwin is as good as advertised, as he got to the cup at will, and led the Wings with a game high 23 points.

All-Ohio’s U-16 squad hooked up with the Baltimore Stars this afternoon, and found themselves in an early hole. Although Red would trail for the entire 1st half, they were able to trim the lead to 4 points (23-27) by the 1:30 mark.  The Stars would extend the lead to 7 heading into the break (32-25). Marc Loving scored 6 straight points early in the half as All-Ohio seized a 40-35 lead with 10:55 left in the game.  After All-Ohio coughed up the ball 6 times in 10 possessions; the Wings would capitalize and cut the lead to 53-52 with a little over two minutes left in the contest.  Baltimore’s Daxter Miles knocked down a jumper with 26 tics left to give the Stars their first lead of the second half (59-58). This game would tighten, as both teams had a chance to get the win late.  Coming out of a timeout, All-Ohio had the ball down 1 with 24 seconds left.  Marc Loving received a pass on the wing, drove baseline, was fouled and then proceeded to knock down 2 free throws to put Red back in front 60-59 with 10.1 remaining.  The Stars in bounded the ball under All-Ohio’s basket, drove the full length of the court, missed a layup, but retained possession with 3.6 left. Baltimore then in bounded the ball at their end of the court, and Kameron Williams got off a desperation shot at .5 that did not look like it had a chance; however, All-Ohio’s Marc Loving fouled Williams in the act of shooting a trey.  Williams then stepped to the line and calmly sank all three free throws to put the Stars ahead 62-60 with .5 seconds left.  A full court heave missed left and the Stars claimed the hard fought victory. Tony Farmer and Marc Loving both led All-Ohio with 16 points. To see the day 2 pics, visit the Buckeye Prep Facebook Fan Page.
