Game report from James Nathanson

The Northland Vikings have played in so many big games over the years that close games don’t phase them one bit. They know that when a basket, play or defensive stop is needed to win a game, it’ll go their way.

The second-seeded Vikings beat 15th-seeded Westerville Central in a Division I district final in the Ohio Expo Center Coliseum.

Winner of three straight district titles and four in the past five years, 23-1 Northland can win games even when they don’t play up to their potential.

Trey Burke scored 19 points to lead the way for the City North Division champions.

Ohio State football recruit Nick Vannett made two free throws with 15 seconds left to give Westerville Central a 62-61 lead.

Burke received the inbounds pass down the court and was fouled in the lane. He made both shots with 8.1 seconds remaining to send the Vikings up on top again, 63-62.

Tre Stennett took the inbounds pass, dribbled into the frontcourt and tried to go between two Northland defenders, but LaVonte Justice stole the ball away and was fouled with two seconds left. He made both free throws to salt the game away.

Jalen Robinson scored 15 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, while Devon Scott had 14 points, 12 in the second half.

The Westerville Central Warhawks were led by Quintin Henderson with 15 points and Kamorin Harris collected 13.

The Warhawks ended a surprising season at 17-7.

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.
