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.
