The Mid-State League Ohio Division basketball race has been tight all season between the Newark Catholic Green Wave and the Columbus Academy Vikings.

The two teams have been neck-and-neck with wins for the past two weeks. But that changed on Tuesday as one team won and the other lost.

With the win, the Green Wave improve to 16-2 overall, 12-1 in the division and have wrapped up a share of the MSL Ohio championship.

Academy led 14-12 at the end of the first quarter.

But Granville scored 17 points in the second to take a 29-19 lead at the half, holding the Vikings to a 5-point in the period.

The Blue Aces stretched their lead to 43-27 and that was basically the game.

The Vikings were led by Tim Eldridge with 16 and Zack Ratcliff with 14.

The Vikings will play on HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE on Friday as they host arch-rival Bexley.
