With several Ohio teams participating in Saturday’s games at Flyin’ to the Hoop we were most intrigued by the heavy-weight matchup of the state’s top two rated Division I teams in Columbus Northland and Garfield Heights, from the Cleveland area. Northland won a hard-fought game 70-62 while several prospects stood out…..

  • Tony Farmer- ’13 Garfield Heights SF/PF: He finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists in a loss to Columbus Northland 70-62.  Under the watchful eye of Xavier’s Head Coach Chris Mack he played well struggled a little at the free throw line (2-6) but played a solid and offensively aggressive game in front of coaches from both Xavier and Ohio State.
  • Jordan Potts– ’12 Columbus Northland PG: “JP” controlled the game after Garfield Heights took an early lead.  He scored on a variety of shots whether driving to the cup or stroking it from behind the arc (2-5 3pt).  He willed his team to a victory 70-62 he finished tied with a team-high of 23 points.
  • Devon Scott– ’12 Columbus Northland C: Devon complimented Potts’ scoring with 23 points (tied team high) while adding 8 rebounds and 5 assists tying the team high.  He scored on a variety of dunks and put-backs.
  • Jalen Robinson– ’12 Columbus Northland PF/C: Another Dayton signee, Robinson was efficient from the field (5-6) 11 pts and ate the glass tying him for a team high with Devon Scott with 8 boards.
  • Mike Davis– ’12 Garfield Heights SG: The 6’2 Davis, who is taking his talent to Northern Illinois, was a beast he gave Garfield an early lead and did his share to try to come away with a victory over Northland he had a game high of 28 points. Davis played above the rim with three highlight dunks, while also showing off a nice mid-range shooting touch in the loss.
  • Jermaine Davis– ’12 Garfield Heights C: The LaSalle signee finished with 9 points and 4 rebounds.  He showed good footwork on the block scoring, whether it was beating his man with good post position and scoring or running the floor and getting some put-backs.

  • David Bell- ’14 Garfield Heights PF/C: At 6’9 he fits the part and contributed in his 7 mins of playing time. With more reps, improving his strength and additional playing time he should be a force to reckon with.
  • Ty Hairston-’14 Columbus Northland PG/SG: The young sophomore showed that he could hit his shot when giving the opportunity.  Also a dynamic passer, Hairston led Northland with assists including two special no lookers for dunks.
  • Elijah Macon– ’12 Huntington Prep PF: The Columbus native, and West Virginia bound prospect, scored 18 points in his teams fifty point win over Dayton’s Trotwood-Madison. As he usually does, Macon played above the rim and used his power and size at 6’9 245 pounds to score and rebound at will against the undersized Rams team.
