For a senior, winning your final game at home is important. For a Zanesville basketball senior, winning every home game is expected. Seniors Tanner Gibson, Cole Carpenter, Rian Burrell, Josh Barker and Krandall Brantley got it done on senior night, beating Columbus St. Francis DeSales 49-46, in one of the few games all season where the Stallions have been at full strength. The fourth-ranked Zanesville seniors finishing their final campaign with a 9-1 record at home. Blue Devils outscored DeSales 20-9 in the second quarter, enjoying a 33-19 lead at half. They would end up needing all of that lead, as the Stallions stormed back in the second half, forcing the Blue Devils to hit their free throws down the stretch. Carpenter leading all scorers with 16 points, with fellow seniors Burrell and Gibson both chipping in 13 points in Zanesville's 11th consecutive win. In the two transitional years between the old and new Winland Memorial Gymnasium, Zanesville finishing with a combined home record of 18-2. Blue Devils next take the floor Tuesday night against Tri-Valley.
