The OCC leading Mansfield Tygers head into this weekend at 9-2 overall and 6-0 in conference play.  Last weekend Senior High picked up two wins over Orrville Friday, which proved to be costly with a right ankle injury to All-Ohioan Keon Johnson in the fourth quarter, an injury that kept him out against Lexington the next night, and according to Tyger coach Johntory Reese will also keep him out this weekend against Wooster and Madison.

Last Saturday morning before the team played Lexington, there was not much time to change things around, this week as the team has been preparing for the Generals and Madison without Johnson in the starting five.  Wooster comes to Pete Henry Gym Friday having won seven of their last eight including a 76-66 win Tuesday over Massillon.  The Generals are big with 6'7" Adam O'Brien, 6'6" Cameron Daugherty and Connor Kubiak and guard 6'3" Marquise Blair.   Reese says they also have an athletic forward in 6'0" Grant Stokes and quick guards in Corey Beckett and Von Blair.

Both Wooster and Mansfield Senior will be going after their fifth straight win on Friday.  As it stands now the Tygers lead the OCC at 6-0, while West Holmes is second at 5-1, with Wooster 4-2 in third place.  Both teams will be on the court on Saturday.  The Tygers will be at rival Madison, while the Generals will travel to Ashland.
