The Spartans hosted the 1st Annual Spartan Tip-Off Classic.  On Friday the Spartans defeated Talawanda by the score of 42-33.  Despite shooting woes (9-16 from FT Line, 1-11 from 3pt) the Spartans were able to hold on for Victory with good team defense and rebounding.  John Cole lead a balanced scoring attack with 9 points.  Anthony Carmichael, Ryan Papanek and Alex Hurley each added 8 points.  Carmichael added 13 rebounds and 3 blocked shots.  Hurley had a career high 4 assists, Luke Kindred added 3 assists.

On Saturday the Spartans defeated the Oakwood Lumberjacks in the Championship Game of the Classic by the score of 56-48.  The Spartans struggled to hit outside shots early in the game against a good Oakwood’s half court zone defense and were down 28-23 at halftime.  The Spartans came out in the second half and were able to attack the Oakwood zone from the inside out and took control of the tempo of the game.  The Spartan responded from a poor shooting night the day before to make clutch Free Throws in the 4th quarter (18-24 from FT Line).  The Spartans had three players in double figures with John Cole leading the way with 15, Alex Hurley 12 and Anthony Carmichael 11.  Cole recorded his first career double by adding 10 rebounds.  The Spartans had great defensive efforts from Ryan Papanek and Mac Greeley, slowing down Oakwood’s dynamic point guard who was unable to get into a rhythm offensively.

Waynesville Freshman team fell short against the visiting Talawanda Braves Saturday night, by a score of 42-31. It was a one possession game the entire way until about two minutes left to go and Talawanda scored a game sealing 3. Ensuing free throws put the game out of reach.

The 7th & 8th Grade Boys basketball team started the season on Tuesday, December 4, with a home game vs. Middletown Madison.  The 7th grade defeated Madison, 35-22, with a balanced scoring effort led by Nick Warren (10 pts), Isaac Squire (6 pts), and Avery Jordan (6 pts).  They outscored Madison in every quarter to lead to a convincing win.

The 8th grade lost to Madison, 34-27, after leading Madison at halftime 22-19.  It was one of those games where the shooting went cold in the second half, which caused the defeat.  Kaden Christensen led in scoring with 13 pts, and Blaise Sizer scored 5.

Both teams play at Dixie (Dec 6), Carroll (Dec 8), and at Bellbrook (Dec. 11).
