Saturday Hoops: No. 1 is Done

Saturday Hoops: No. 1 is Done

by Jed DeMuesy on January 16, 2011

Before the game, Zanesville head coach Scott Aronhalt preached to his kids the motto that this Blue Devil team has lived by all season: Set the Tempo. In no game was it more important than the eleventh game of Zanesville’s year, against the defending Division I state champions, the Massillon Jackson Polar Bears. Coming into the game, Jackson was riding a 23 game winning streak, scoring 75 points a game in nine wins this season. Zanesville held them to 55 in a 58-55 victory, Jackson’s first loss in 24 games. Leading the way for the Blue Devils were Tanner Gibson and Rian Burrell both with 16 points, while Kade Haddox chipped in 10, a season high for the junior guard. Zanesville improves their record to 9-2, and will next step on the floor this coming Tuesday against Canal Winchester at Winland Memorial Gymnasium.
