EAST LIVERPOOL, OH- There’s a quote that reads “When you know yourself, you are empowered. When you accept yourself, you are invincible.” On Tuesday, inside the Potter Fieldhouse, the ninth member of the 1,000 Point Club was inducted into that elite group to jog the courts of ELHS. Tresean Jackson has not only found and accepted himself and the role on this team, but he has thrived in it. Jackson led the Potters past rival Indian Creek with a 35 point performance on the way to an 82-39 victory.
Jackson stood at 965 coming into Tuesday night, and as he’s done all season- hit the nail on the head with a near-perfect performance to celebrate a special night in his career. Tre drilled 5 from beyond the arc, and the rest came from dazzling moves and pull-up jumpers that sent the crowd home smiling.
Also contributing to the victory for the Blue and White were Brennan O’Hara with 4 rebounds and 9 points, Timmy Neal with 10 points and five boards, and Izaiha Browning with 9 points.
Indian Creek’s Mike Krczykowski led the way with 13 points and 4 caroms for his side. Jacob Wright also contributed with a double-digit effort and 10 points.
East Liverpool (5-0) will now look to battle Meadowbrook this Saturday at the Buckeye 8 Challenge at Ohio University Eastern. Tipoff is set for 4:15.
