|2020 Ohio Rebels-New Castle Tipoff Classic U-17 Champions|
The 2020 Ohio Rebels left off where they finished last season, wining championships! What was most impressive about this past weekend’s win was the fact the Rebels were playing up in the U-17 division of the New Castle Tipoff Classic and still got the victory. On their trek to the title the Rebels defeated St. Basil (80-38), BSA (68-22), Steel City Warriors (48-41) and the Red Storm (74-54).
Coach Justin Ferguson returns most of his top players from last season, but added 6’7 Chris Ringfield from St. Edwards. Ringfield averaged 12 rebounds and 14 points during the Rebels’ run. Garvin Clarke is already off to a hot start this season as evidenced by his 32-point average over the weekend. Other standouts included Taj Staveskie, Nick Ferguson, Dakota Chchran, Tyler Lacy, Cory Floyd and Omahn Dobbins. We look forward to seeing the Rebels next weekend at the Buckeye Prep Invitational in Columbus.
