Ron Tanner’s days at Eastmoor Academy are dwindling down. He’ll be graduating in about three weeks, but he also enrolled at Ohio State getting ready for spring football. He is an all-Ohio defensive back. Tanner also was Eastmoor’s quarterback.

But everytime the Warriors step on the basketball court in the current Ohio High School Athletic Association tournament, one more loss and his career is over with.

In their game against Columbus DeSales, the game was tied at 51-51, Eastmoor Academy was running their four-corner delay offense to take the final shot, Tanner, who is considered to be the best player on the team, got open and took a 3-point shot from the corner and made it with 57 seconds left, to lead Eastmoor to a 58-51 win over third-seeded DeSales in the Division II district semifinal at the Ohio Expo Center Coliseum. Tanner finished with 19 points.

The Warriors improve to 12-10 on the season. Eastmoor plays in the Columbus City League South Division and is often overlooked due to the fact that there is Walnut Ridge, Marion-Franklin, Africentric and Independence who get a lot of attention because they are bigger, stronger, have depth and more star-player recognition.

But Eastmoor does have some good players to go along with Tanner. John Draper scored 20 points.

The Warriors scored the game’s final seven points to eliminate DeSales (15-7).

Kellogg shut down; DeSales falls in regional championship

compiled from staff and wire reports

Columbus DeSales fought back from an early 12-point deficit, but could never get into a consistent offensive rhythm, and lost to Zanesville in the Division II regional championship in Athens, Ohio.

The major problem hampering the 21-3  Stallions all game was that their star player, Nick Kellogg was limited to 4 points on 2-of-13 shooting. Zanesville’s Raheem Forman shut him down and made sure to keep the Ohio University-bound Kellogg in front of him and made him make extra moves just to try to get open.

DeSales senior guard Adam Griffin put the team on his shoulders and helped bring them back from an 18-6 deficit with a 13-0 run to get back in the game. He was the only consistent player they had all game.

After DeSales took a lead at 45-44 with 2:30 left, Zanesville broke the Stallions press made the necessary plays down the stretch to win the game.

Nick Kellogg leads DeSales

Nick Kellogg, son of former OSU and NBA star, Clark Kellogg playing Thursday night at the Convocation Center at Ohio University was only fitting. It’s where he’ll continue his playing career with the Bobcats.

He had a nice game, scoring 21 points in leading Columbus DeSales to a 62-50 win over Logan Elm. The Athens, Ohio crowd was getting a glimpse of what they might be seeing in the next four years.

Kellogg and his teammates will get another chance on Saturday as the Stallions will play Zanesville for the Division II regional championship in The Convo.

DeSales started slowly because of sloppy play and turnovers. Logan Elm took advantage and led 15-11 after the first quarter.

In the second quarter, DeSales got themselves under control and went on an 11-0 run to lead 46-35 after 3 quarters and the game was essentially over.

Nick Kellogg also added a perfect 10-for-10 at the free throw line to go with his 21 points.
