Tuesday - Girls @Adena (0-4). Unioto leads the all time series 50-43. Adena's time is coming for their program to make their resurgence, as they are young and talented. Look for Hannah Stark and Jayden Smith to be the go-to players for the Warriors. The Shermans will need to guard on the perimeter and get some consistent scoring from the guard position to stay undefeated.
Wednesday - Boys vs. Nelsonville-York (3-0). First ever meeting. The Buckeyes come into the contest unbeaten and loaded with experience. 8 seniors help fill out the roster for NY and they are led in scoring and rebounding by Sr Ethan Bohyer (15.5 ppg, 8 rpg) and Sr PG Justin Perry (14.5 ppg). The Shermans will need to keep the Buckeyes off the glass and continue to make shots if they want to even up their overall record at 2-2. This game will be JV and Varsity only, with the JV game starting at 6.
Thursday - Girls @ Vinton County (4-0). Unioto leads the all-time series 9-1. One of the marquee matches in the Southeast District this week. Vinton County went 21-3 last year and returns much of their roster and have several talented underclassmen making impacts as well. However, one of those 3 losses was a decisive one at Unioto 67-44, where the Vikings struggled from the outside and the Shermans dominated the glass and interior. Look for a tough, tight match up at the Valhalla, which should be more than worth the price of admission.
Friday - Boys vs. Piketon (2-3). Unioto leads the all-time series 64-44, including winning the last 10 meetings. A vital standings game in the SVC will tip off in Frenchtown when the Shermans host the Redstreaks. Piketon will bring a frantic pace and fast, aggressive defense that will look to force turnovers into easy points. Sr PG Alex Blanton (18.8 ppg) has been outstanding thus far this season, while the 'Streaks are trying to find a consistent 2nd scorer, they do have 6 different players averaging over 4 points per game.
Saturday - Girls/Boys @Westfall, (G, 1-3/B, 1-2). Unioto leads both all-time series, Girls 59-26 and Boys 54-42. The Boys have won the 16 matchups with the Mustangs. This will be an all-day event starting at 1 with the Freshman Boys game, followed by JV Boys, then JV Girls, Varsity Girls, and finishing with Varsity Boys. Westfall has athletes all over each program and will not be a pushover, especially at the Dome.
Friday - Varsity L 69-50 to Zane Trace, JV W 40-21, Fr W 33-23
Saturday - Varsity W 63-50 at Huntington, JV W 32-28, Fr W 49-37
Girls - Varsity 3-0, JV 3-0 (45 straight wins)
