It was the same result, this time in regulation. The Zanesville Blue Devils are sectional champs once again, thanks to a 50-37 victory over Maysville. It wasn’t the overtime thriller the two teams treated us to a year ago, instead a more battle tested Blue Devil bunch pushed all the right buttons against a Panther team that weathered a few early storms. After an early 8-0 deficit, Maysville battled to make it a 19-14 Zanesville advantage at halftime, thanks in part to poor shooting from both teams. Zanesville then took the third quarter by storm, starting the frame on a 7-1 run, and did not look back from there. Leading the way for the Blue Devils was Rian Burrell with 21 points, one off his season high of 22. Cole Carpenter had 10 points, two of which coming off a thunderous dunk that brought the Wigwam to its feet. Blue Devils improve to 20-2 on the year, thier 15th consecutive victory. Maysville finishes thier stellar season at 16-6.
