Huskies beat Panthers

RAYLAND - Harrison Central converted 23 of 30 free throws and turned the ball over just four times in Wednesdauy's 67-56 win over homestanding Buckeye Local on Wednesday.

Both teams close the regular season on Friday with OVAC pool play matchups. Coach Justin Clifford's Huskies with be on the road to take on John Marshall and coach Greg Haberfield's Panthers visit Toronto.

"It was a kind of an emotional night, being the last home game for our seniors," Haberfield commented. "But we've made a big improvement since the last time we played them.

"I have to give them a lot of credit. They really know how to take care of the ball. Their pressure defense is one of the best we've gone up against this year and when we put them at the line, they made us pay for it."

Dustin Redish led four double digit scorers for the Huskies with 18 points, while Austin Kowalski tossed in 17 and Kalub Mitchell and Nate Olmstead closed with 11 apiece.

"Every game we play, I am more relaxed," Clifford said. "Win or lose, this team will give its all. They just play so hard.

"I don't know if they know what let up means. We don't know if our shots will go in or not, but we know the defense will be there. We play a lot of teams that change up defense a lot and we are getting used to it. We know that we have to win in different ways."

Buckeye Local's Brennan Czuchran finished with a team-high 17 points while Dylan Dokes added 16 and Jonathan Borkoski had 15. Czuchran also add 13 rebounds.

"He's a very good player," Clifford said about Czuchran. "He's a handful. He's probably the best player in our league."
