After a 55-40 win over Bucyrus this past Monday, the Buckeye Central boys basketball team has kept themselves a game ahead in the North Central Conference standings. Ranked in the top ten for the first time since the 2003-'04 season, the Bucks, 12-1, 7-1 will try to stay right there and maybe move up, but to do that they will have to take care of business on their home floor Saturday evening as they take on rival Colonel Crawford, the only team to beat the Bucks to this point winning 60-48 back in December. The Eagles come in at 10-3, 5-2 in the NCC and are coming off a 60-51 loss to Galion last weekend. Yet the Bucks will have to guard against four of the best scorers in the conference in Connor McCreary, 18 ppg, Todd Entenmann 16 ppg, Nate Klingenberger 12 ppg and Logan Sager at 8.2 ppg. BC coach Phil Loy also adds Dylan Gulley into that group who averages just over five points per game saying the first time around at Crawford, it was Sager and Gulley who were difference makers in the teams first meeting. Buckeye Central will try to counter with Austin Wurm 20 ppg, Cade Kaple 14 ppg, Sam Robertson 12 ppg along with Seth Ollis at six points per game and Stone Wurm also at six a game. The contest is big not only in the NCC standings, but also tournament wise. The Division IV sectional tournament draw is two weeks from this Sunday at Ontario. Buckeye Central will join Plymouth, Mansfield Christian and St.Peter's at the "O"rena the week of February 24th.
