After an opening season loss to state ranked Buckeye Central 63-49, the Plymouth Big Red have won 11 straight after their 72-67 win over Mansfield St.Peter's Tuesday evening. Ranked 14th in Division IV, the Big Red will play two this weekend, both in Firelands Conference play against 4-6 New London and 1-10 Mapleton. Plymouth won both games the first time around 76-39 over the Wildcats and 60-41 over the Mounties. At 7-0 in conference play, the Big Red leads both New London and Western Reserve by two games heading into the second half of the regular season. On offense Plymouth has averaged 68 points per game led by Tyson Beebe with 19 ppg, Tyrell Edmiston at 16 points a contest and Dodge Collins at nearly ten points a game. Coach Troy Keene likes what he has seen on offense to this point in the season, but says his team needs to improve on defense if they want to win an FC championship and make a deep run in tournament. The Big Red is enjoying their best season since the 2009-'10 season when they finished as Division IV regional runner-up with an overtime loss to Lima Central Catholic at BGSU. The players including point guard Hunter Bailey says the team remains focused, just a game at a time and not looking too far ahead saying we have not won anything yet. Tournament time could get interesting with #14 Plymouth, #11 Buckeye Central, Mansfield Christian and Mansfield St.Peter's all at the same sectional in Division IV at Ontario the week of February 24th.
