COLUMBUS – Port Clinton may have won a moral victory March 27, but
Dayton Dunbar got the victory the Redskins really wanted – and the state
championship trophy that went with it.

Believed by many to be a huge underdog despite its undefeated record,
PC led explosive Dayton Dunbar in the third quarter before finally

championship game at OSU’s Schottenstein Center.

(25-3) that gets to hang another state championship banner in its gym.
It’s the fourth overall for the Wolverines and their third in the last

have more state basketball titles than the Wolverines.
