COLUMBIANA, OH- If you take a look at the Crestview Rebels from last year to this year, the change is evident. With the changes made in the offseason to the coaching staff and the success of other sports in the school, you can see the progress on the basketball court.
It just so happens that on Friday, that team ran into Southern Local. The Indians were able to take care of business to the tune of 62-38, and remain unbeaten on the year.
Southern sits where Crestview aspires to be in the future. Players who have had time to gel by playing consistently with one another over the last 3-4 years. Standout athletes like Cam Grodhaus and the Sloan brothers highlight an overly impressive team. Grodhaus was able to put up 29 points on the evening with calculated play from inside and outside the 3-point line. Brock Smalley supplemented the Indian offense with 11 tallies.
For Crestview, Junior Drake Golden led the way in the paint with 28 points and 12 boards. Anthony Cusick had 5 points and 2 rebounds while Matt Strank scored a bucket for the Rebs.
The Rebels (0-3) must now gear up for AAC play next week when they host Liberty at home on Friday.
