Marietta blows a lead in the 2nd half and never recovers as John Carroll slowly pulled away at the end.
If you love offense watching either of these squads, is something you should treat yourself to.
John Carroll (6-1 2-1) trailed by eight at the half but was able to go off in the second half,thanks to some hot shooting and solid defense. Hitting 50% from the field in the 2nd half, including 50% of their three was enough to for JC to post the win. Leading the way was Jimmy Berger(Cleveland St. Ignatius) with 19 points. Chipping in with 15 points was John Cirillo(Chardon Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin).Allen Stokes(Shaker Heights) and Berger each totaled 7 boards.
For Marietta (6-2- 1-2) a bad 2nd half did them in, in this one. This was only their 2nd loss in the last 41 home games, if the TV guy was correct with his info. The Pioneers hit just 44% of their shots in the final half. Leading the way with 19 apiece was the duo of Dillon Young(Logan Elm) and Anthony Wallace( The Linsly School, W.VA)Avery Williams(Tri-Valley) had 12 boards in the loss.
