The top two teams seeded in the Division II Sectional/District at Coshocton played each other in the District Championship. It was just as those twelve teams in the sectional thought it would shake down, #1 Dover taking on #2 Zanesville. The Tornadoes entered that game with just two losses on the year, but ended up suffering thier third as the Zanesville Blue Devils punch thier ticket to the Sweet Sixteen in Division II with a 45-40 victory over coach Bob Von Kaenel’s club. Dover led by two points after one quarter, Zanesville led by two at the half, and led by as much as 11 in the second half. Down the stretch, Dover made a run but it wasn’t enough, as Tanner Gibson scored 15 points to lead the Blue Devils. Raheem Foreman added 13, while Anthony Monaco netted 28 in the loss for the Tornadoes.
