2015 Buckeye Prep Invitational Final Day Recap

6th Grade Mid-Ohio Pumas-Champions
The final day of the 2015 Buckeye Prep Invitational Tournament featured plenty of drama as teams battled out for championships.  All of the championship games were held at Central Crossing High School so we had the opportunity to catch a few of the games. One of the best championship games of the day pitted the 2018 Ohio Hoopsters against Buckeye Prep Goodwin.  In the end, Buckeye Prep would squeak out a 38-40 victory.  Another close one featured the 2019 Ohio Bulldogs against the Mid-Ohio Pumas. Both teams are loaded with individual talent, but the Pumas had a little more in the tank on Sunday, taking the championship 48-45. 

The 4th grade championship involved another dog fight as All-Oho Red would go on to claim the 52-56 victory over MWA Elite. The 3rd grade championship featured a battle of Michigan teams as R.E.A.C.H. Detroit faced off against R.E.A.C.H. Legends Red.  It really wasn’t a contest, as R.E.A.C.H. Detroit cruised to a lopsided win.  Below are the complete tournament results, including MVPs and All-Tournament Teams.  Congratulations to all the champions and runner-ups for making a great run to the final game.
