The last area boy's basketball team remaining in the OHSAA tournament was was eliminated on Tuesday evening at Bowling Green State University's Stroh Center, as the Colonel Crawford Eagles fell in the Division IV regional semifinal to Toledo Ottawa Hills 53-40.

The Eagles were held to single digit scoring in three of the four quarters against the Green Bears who had a size advantage down low with 6'8" RJ Coil who finished with 14 points and 6'6" Geoff Beans who dropped in nine, while 6'4" Lucas Janowicz scored ten.  CC trailed 15-6 after one quarter, then were able to close the gap to 17-13 near the end of the first half, but a long distance three pointer by the Bears Ben Silverman who also finished with nine points, pushed the lead back up to seven at the break 20-13.

An 8-0 run by Ottawa Hills to start the third quarter had Crawford down 28-13, putting them in a hole they could not climb out of.  The Eagles were led in scoring by Nate Klingenberger and Connor McCreary who both had 12 points and will be back next season.  Crawford ends the season as NCC Silver Division, sectional and district champions with an overall record of 20-6.  CC also will say goodbye to four seniors Spencer Tackett, Austin Adams, Clay Jury and Mitch Cook.  11 players return from this season's squad for 2013-'14.
