1972-73 Wilmington High School boys basketball


The 1972-73 Wilmington High School varsity boys basketball team finished with an 11-9 record. That mark included two tournament games — a win over Dayton Belmont and a loss to Dayton Roth. Tim Wilson and Robert Raizk were first-team All-South Central Ohio League while Brad Halley and Tim Haley were given honorable mention All-SCOL. Wilmington was 1-18 the previous season. Among the ’72-’73 highlights, Raizk had 34 points on 15 of 23 shooting in a win at McClain. In that game, Against Bellbrook, Wilson had 20 points, 15 rebounds and 8 blocked shots. Bill McClary handed out 11 assists. Wilson had three 18-rebound games, a 23-rebound game and a 24-rebound game. None were his season best, though. Timbo was credited with 28 rebounds in a 61-59 win at Richardson Place against McClain. In a 66-61 loss at Circleville, WHS was whistled for 31 fouls — four Hurricane fouled out — while the Tigers had 13 fouls. WHS made 14 of its last 15 free throws in a 73-67 win over the Blue Lions. Wilmington stopped East Clinton’s 14-game win streak with a 58-57 victory.
