|2023 All-Ohio Wolves|
Although Coach Durand Barnes’ 2023 All-Ohio Wolves team has enjoyed a lot of recent success, the team is still flying under the radar. Barnes’ Cincinnati-based Wolves team finished the winter season with 2 league and 3 tournament championships. In addition, last week the Wolves finished 4-0 in tournament play. They may not yet be widely known statewide, but Barnes has a lot of confidence in his team’s potential. “We are definitely a top 10 team in the state,” said Barnes. Barnes is equally complimentary of his top 2 players, Deshawne Crim (5’7/WF/2023/Cincinnati) and Trent Lloyd (5’3/PG/2023/Cincinnati). He [Crim] is probably the best player in the state,” Barnes proclaimed. Well, time will tell exactly how good the Wolves are and at what level Crim can compete. We plan to keep an eye on the Wolves over the next several weeks.
