On Tuesday, the Boys will begin their 2019-2020 season with a home contest against the Miami Trace Panthers. The Panthers (0-1) bring in great size with 3 players standing over 6'5 in their starting lineup. The Shermans will look to combat that height with their front line of Reece Wheeler (6'5), Evan Park (6'5), Cater Markko (6'2) and Josh Lambert (6'3)
Last Season -- Unioto won at Miami Trace, 56-40.
All-Time Series -- Unioto leads 12-8
On Thursday, the girls will take their 21 game SVC winning streak into the Township as they will battle the Huntington Huntsmen. Huntington (0-1) is paced by sophomore standout Allison Basye, who scored 24 points in their opener, including 17 from the FT line. Basye averaged 17 ppg and 10 rpg last season as a freshman. In the 2 meetings last season, defensive standout Amber Cottrill did an excellent job on Basye and will likely get the matchup again. Fellow senior Emily Coleman knocked down 5 3's on the Shermans last trip into the Huntington Hills.
The JV game will likely be only one half, so plan on getting to Huntington early if you are only taking in the varsity contest.
Last Season -- Unioto won both meetings, 45-33 and 55-33.
All-Time Series -- Unioto leads 65-30
Friday night will be a showcase game in the Southeast District, as the boys will host the Logan Chieftains in a non-league matchup. The Chieftains are coming off of a season in which they finished 17-4, but did graduate their top 6 in their rotation. Logan does return a talented group from their JV level and will still be very physical, making this a matchup to watch.
Last Season -- Logan won 66-47.
All-Time Series -- Unioto leads 4-3
