HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE: East hangs on to beat South, 63-59 in City League crossover game


In our Tuesday night edition of HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE, we had a City League crossover game between, the South Bulldogs of the South Division at the East Tigers of the North Division.

The Tigers held on with a 63-59 escape over South.

Darius White scored 21 points to lead the way followed by James Davis with 18 as host East improves to 8-12 on the season.

South drops to 6-14 on the season. Quite an improvement in 2012. Last year at this time the Bulldogs were winless heading into the OHSAA playoffs. Ramon Spears, their head coach is doing a solid job.

The game marked Senior night for the East team. The home crowd honored the four-year players with a thanks for the memories reflection with the program. Leaving after the season will be Torre’ Smith, White, David Dorsey and Hasan Strothers-Harris.

The visiting Bulldogs started slowly, while the Tigers led 17-10 after one quarter, with White leading the way with seven points.

One of the reasons that East controlled the first half of play and led at the half, 30-22, was that they held South center, 6’8 Ellis Williams scoreless and he had to leave the game early with two quick fouls. With Williams out of the game, Davis scored six points in the second quarter.

The pace of the game picked up in the 3rd quarter as South got Williams back in the game and involved in the offense with eight points, but they trailed by 14 at 42-28. But South cut the lead down to only 4 points with a 14-4 run to end the third quarter trailing 46-42.

In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs took control and led by four at 55-51 on two Deone Lindsay free throws with 3:24 to go in regulation.

From that point on the East Tigers used their press and drives to the basket to get fouled and won the game at the free throw line.

The Buckeye Muffler & Brake Shop Player of the Game was East High senior White.

An interesting twist to this game is that both schools are in Division II and in the upcoming OHSAA tournament, the two teams will play each other at Dublin Scioto on Wednesday, February 22 at 7:45 pm.

The Northland Vikings honored their senior basketball players before playing Columbus East earlier in the week.

Getting a nice round of applause was Trey Burke, Lavonte Justice, Jakyl Cornley, Roberto Pierre and LaQuan Williams.

Also in the crowded gym were former Vikings stars, J.J. and Jared Sullinger.

The game was over before you knew it.

The Vikings were just too much for a scrappy East team who is short on depth and talent, winning 82-43.

Northland, who upped its record to 17-1, 13-0 in the City North Division, was up 4-0, and 24-6 at the end of the first quarter as East head coach Bob White used two timeouts to stop the bleeding. The Vikings used a fullcourt press and sticky defense to fuel their uptempo attack.

From there it was simply a rout, as Northland lead 48-17 at the half, 68-27 at the end of three quarters and basically just played sportsmanship in the fourth quarter by taking perimeter shots and head coach Satch Sullinger dug deep into his bench to play his reserves.

Trey Burke led the Vikings with 20, Devon Scott added 16, Kechaun Lewis knocked in 12 and Jaylen Benton scored 10.

Columbus East, who fell to a disappointing 2-17, 1-12 in the North Division, was led by Darius White with 13, Carnell Willoughby and Mycol Madison with nine points each and James Davis with 8.

Our players of the game were Darius White of East and Trey Burke of Northland.
