Massie JV boys win holiday tournament title

FAIRFIELD – The Clinton-Massie reserve boys basketball team defeated Cincinnati Christian 49-26 Saturday in the championship game of the Brian Cook Invitational at Cincinnati Christian.

Tate Olberding was named the tournament Most Valuable Player while he and teammate Austin Faucett were both named to the all-tournament team.

Faucett had 13 points in the championship game while Jordan Redman had 11 points and eight rebounds. Olberding finished with seven points and five rebounds.

Logan Meyers contributed six points and Carter Euton chipped in with four points. Davis Wulf had three points and Danny Peppas and Dakota Gasaway scored two points each. Ethan Hughes had a free throw. Brody Muterspaw grabbed five rebounds and Tyler Roberts had a steal.

The Falcons held Cincinnati Christian to 12 first half points with a solid defensive effort. The team also had a strong rebounding effort throughout the entire game.

“We also did a great job of getting out in transition and attacking offensively,” said coach Steven Gerber. “I was a little concerned about our legs after an up and down physical game last night versus Stivers (Friday night) but our entire team stepped and gave us a lift. I was very proud of (the) kids; they continue to step up when called upon. And they are playing well off of each other.”
