After going 16-8 in all games last season 9-5 in the OCC, Division II district semifinalist Lexington will open the boys basketball season with two games this weekend, at home to Brunswick on Friday, then at Willard on Saturday evening. Coach Scott Hamilton, who begins his second season as head coach, says week one is a bit of a mystery as Brunswick is a new opponent and the Flashes have a new coach in Chris Long who took over for Dave Hirschy after last season. The 2013-'14 season is beginning a week earlier than last year and when asked if he thought his team was ready Hamilton's reply was no, saying it would be nice to have that extra week to prepare, but as it is we'll take on who ever comes into the gym. Senior guard Matt Barkett feels the team is ready and says he likes the team's chemistry saying the six seniors on the squad have played alot of basketball together in Zach Temple, Trent Richwine, Bryan Truax, Barkett, Nick Leasure and Tyler Johnson. After their opening weekend, Lex will get into Ohio Cardinal Conference play the following week at Wooster on Friday, December 6th.
