Buckeye Prep Takes AAU Super Regional

Buckeye Prep 7th Grader Claim Championship

Ed Lyshe’s 7th grade Buckeye Prep squad finished 5-0 on their way to capturing the AAU Super Regional in Cincinnati yesterday. In order claim the title, Buckeye Prep had to get by the SP Shooters (71-7), Cincy Shock (70-49), Cincy SP Shooters (98-10), Cincy Lakers (60-47) and the Lexington Future. In the championship game, Prep held off a hard charging Lexington Future to get the 56-52 win, and to qualify for the DI AAU Nationals in Memphis, TN. in July. In the final game, TheRon Jennings dropped an impressive 20 points, followed by Seth Goodson who added 16 and Cameron Carlisle who finished with a big 9 points. Goodson’s 16 point average was good enough for MVP honors, but Teon and TheRon Jennings both had breakout performance over the weekend. Although Lyshe’s team has been playing some good basketball this season, Sunday’s win marks their first championship. Next up for Buckeye Prep is the AAU State Qualifier next weekend, followed by Nike Memorial Tournament, then Buckeye Prep Summer Showdown the weekend of May 31st in Columbus. Congratulations to Coach Lyshe, his players, parents and fans!
