All-Ohio Stumbles in Session Two

Sitting at 2-1 heading into the evening session of the Peach Jam, All-Ohio was positioned well to advance to bracket play on Thursday with a win over 11-4 Georgia Stars.  All-Ohio new they would have their hands full with top 100 ranked Tony Parker, but 6’8 Alex Poythress proved to be biggest problem, as he helped the Stars pull away in the second half to claim a lopsided victory over All-Ohio. Although All-Ohio would own a 1 point lead early in the first half, the Stars came racing back and would eventually take a 10 point lead into the break (29-39).

All-Ohio’s pressure defense proved effective, as they cut the lead to 3 points as late as the 13:16 mark. After Red went away from attacking the cup and started jacking up threes (4-21 for the game), the Stars turned a competitive game into a 85-65 blowout win. Alex Poythress finished with a team high 24 points, while Kenny Gains added 19, Jaron Blossomgame contributed 15 and Tony Park dropped 13.  Shaker Height’s Terry Rozier had his game clicking as he did everything he could to get the win. Rozier was good for a game high 26 points and a team high 7 rebounds. Both Deontae Hawkins and Myles Hamilton finished with 11 points, followed by Leroy Alexander (7), Jake Kretzer (5), Kenny Kaminski (4), Jalen Robinson (2) and Jordan Potts (2).  All-Ohio will face Athletes First (8-7) Thursday morning, but with a 2-2 pool record, All-Ohio will need a lot of help to advance to bracket play.
