BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL Tournament action: Africentric runs over Centerburg in Division III play

Game report from Russell North & Ralph Mushi

Every year, high school basketball players say they hate to play games in the Ohio Expo Center Coliseum aka the Fairgrounds Coliseum. Their reasons include its cold, has bad lighting, bad sight lines and not often-filled and just not good if you’re a shooter.

The Columbus Horizon used to say the same thing when they played in the Coliseum back in the late 80′s.

All of those old superstitions did not effect Kalomo Figueroa-Jackson of Africentric in their game against Centerburg.
