Alexander High School saw both its boys’ and girls’ basketball teams finish around the middle of the pack in the TVC-Ohio last season. The Lady Spartans finished in fourth with a 5-5 conference record, while the boys ended the season in third place with a 4-6 record in conference play.

It was closer than they may have liked, but the Ohio men’s basketball came away with the 69-60 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff Tuesday night in the Convo.

Last season, the Nelsonville-York boys team surprised many with their push towards the Schottenstein Center. Few fans expected them to make it past the first round, and even less expected them to get their revenge over Crooksville.
