Boys BKB: Waverly Stops Cavs, 45-43
Friday 02-26-2010 11:19pm ET
Waverly had a crucial 8-0 run midway through the game to gain momentum, and hold on for a 45-43 Sectional Championship win over Chillicothe Friday.
The win propels the Tigers into a District Semi-final against the Logan Elm/Vinton County winner at the OU Convocation Center March 5th.
The Tigers had two swings to gain momentum and overtake Chillicothe.
The first came after Cavs had built a 24-15 second quarter lead. In the final minute of the half, Waverly's Sam Johnston and Harrison Martin hit two baskets to close the gap to five at intermission. Then, to start the third quarter, the Tigers got two buckets to pull within 24-23.
The second run began after the Cavs' Jalen Ragland nailed a three pointer with 2:22 in the third period for a 33-28 Chillicothe lead. To close out the third, Waverly scored the next six points, including a buzzer beating put back by Martin, to earn their first lead since the game's first 3:11 at 35-33. That margin increased to four points, 37-33.
Chillicothe could never retake the lead.
Ragland cut it to 40-39 on back-to-back 3's, but the Cavs couldn't get over the hump.
In the final seconds, Chillicothe found an opportunity to tie, but the final shot of Michael Turner's career rimmed out as time expired.
It wasn't the Cavs' only chance. The game was locked at 42-41 for nearly four minutes, as Chillicothe went empty on four consecutive trips.
The Cavs had 17 turnovers to Waverly's 10.
The Tigers outscored Chillicothe 17-10 over the game's final 10:22.
Turner was held to just 7 points, while Ragland led the Cavs with 16. Zach Johnson and Tyler Manion scored 6 each, Isaac Beverly 4 and Landon Beverly and Malik London 2 apiece.
Jake Kretzer poured in 20 points and Martin added 12 more for the double figure scorers.
The Cavs finish 13-8 and runner-up to Ironton in the SEOAL.
Chillicothe loses three seniors, Michael Turner (the last member of the 2008 State Championship team), Landon Beverly and Timmy Dunbar.

GIrls BKB: Reynoldsburg Ends Cavs Season 47-33
Thursday 02-25-2010 1:14pm ET
It became the final game of the season for Chillicothe, but the Lady Cavs came to the party to play.
Reynoldsburg, the Number 6 seed of 42 teams in the Girls Division 1 Central District tournament, held just a one point lead at halftime as Chillicothe kept pace with the athletic Raiders, 21-20.
That athleticism took over in the third quarter as Reynoldsburg held Chillicothe scoreless for nearly 6 minutes and took a 37-25 advantage.
Alyssa Oates hit a field goal early in the third as the teams traded baskets at 23-22, but the Cavs couldn't get a basket until Whitney Harewood hit a three pointer just before the period came to a close.
Meanwhile, Reynoldsburg's stifling defensive pressure frustrated the Cavs and when the Raiders went to the free throw line, they couldn't miss. Reynoldsburg was 13-of-15 through the 3rd and finished 19-of-25 for the game.
None of the Cavs scored in double figures. Scoring 8 points each were Harewood and Monique Lee. Holly Lemay chipped in 6, Mariah Smith and Alyssa Oates had 4 points apiece and Kristen Smith hit a three pointer for the Cavs' final bucket.
Chillicothe loses six players to graduation, led by four year starter Mo Lee, Lemay, Harewood, Maria and Kristen Smith and Brittny Strawser.
The Cavs finish the season 12-9.
Reynoldsburg advances to play Upper Arlington Monday at Olentangy Liberty. The Golden Bears beat Westland 68-30.

Boys Bkb: Cavs Beat Unioto 60-23, Meet Waverly Friday
Wednesday 02-24-2010 9:54am ET
The two clubs were snowed out last week, but Chillicothe and Waverly will meet this Friday night in the Sectional Championship game at Southeastern High School.
Chillicothe used pressure defense and quickness up the floor to win their D2 Sectional Semi-final with Unioto 60-23.
The Cavs (13-7) took command early as Michael Turner set the tone, scoring 14 of his game high 20 points in the first quarter.
Chillicothe led 32-12 at intermission and 43-19 through three periods.
The Cavs hit 62% of their shots from the field (25-40) while holding Unioto to 10-for-38 night (26%).
Unioto's Devin Willard was the leading scorer for the Shermans (8-12).
Jalen Ragland poured in another 18 points for the Cavs.
In the night's first game, The Tigers beat Jackson 50-36.
For more than three quarters, the Ironmen kept pace with 2nd seeded Waverly, but they ran out of steam as the Tigers outlasted the Jackson attack, 50-36.
Early on, Jackson jumped out to an 11-6 score. The Tigers wiped that lead away quickly.
The Tigers chipped away at their deficit to pull even at 14 on a shot by Derek Roback at 3:49 in the 2nd.
The two teams swapped leads three times before the half 17-16, Waverly.
Jackson continued to work the perimeter game and took a 3-point lead on a four point play. Morgan Dobbins nailed a straight away three and was fouled, hitting the free throw to give the Ironmen a 27-24 lead.
Waverly erased that deficit with four free throws to take a 28-27 lead early in the 4th. Roback hit another jumper to go ahead 30-27.
Waverly began to take control from that point on, outscoring Jackson 13-3 for a 42-30 lead with 3:22 remaining.
Roback led Waverly with 19 points and Jake Kretzer added 17 for the double figure scoring for the Tigers.
Tickets for the game are available at the CHS Athletic Department from 8:30am-3:00pm, cash only.

Tuesday 02-23-2010 1:09pm ET
The Chillicothe boys bowling team finished a perfect season with a three hundred forty two pin victory over visiting Logan at Shawnee Lanes Monday evening. The (19-0) Cavaliers repeated as South Central Ohio Conference champions while building an early lead over the Chieftains to finish undefeated. CHS was led in scoring by Jr. Casey Oates with a 446 series and Lance Gilbert's 401 set.
The Cavaliers next move into District tournament action at HP Lanes in Columbus on Saturday looking to secure a spot in the State Finals at Shawnee Lanes on March 5th.

Boys BKB: Cavs Tangle with Shermans Tonight
Tuesday 02-23-2010 11:41am ET
The Cavaliers face the Unioto Shermans tonight for the first time since the 2005 post season. The Cavs won that night, 74-56 in Gary Kellough's first year with Chillicothe.
The Cavs have gone 75-21 since that last meeting, a season that was stopped by Dante Jackson and the McClain Tigers.
This season, Unioto has battled to an 8-11 record and 7-7 in the Scioto Valley Conference. Coach Matt Hoops says the Shermans have "... no big scorer, just about five guys averaging around 9 points per game."
Sometimes, that's all you need.
Recently, the Shermans have had a rough road to sled, finishing the year with Piketon (14-5) and Washington Court House (18-2) and now Chillicothe (12-7).
The game is scheduled for an 8:00pm tip-off, following the Waverly-Jackson game (6:15pm).
Fans attending the games will get two for the price of one. Larry Jordan Gymnasium at Southeastern H.S. will not be cleared following the first game.
Coverage on 1490 WBEX begins around 7:45pm.
