Ohio National Guard JJH Team of the Week
JJHuddle is proud to announce that the Ohio National Guard will again sponsor the ONG JJHuddle Player and Team of the Week awards in Football and Basketball during the 2013-2014 school year.
Each week during the football, boys basketball and girls basketball regular seasons, we will hold a fan-generated contest on JJHuddle to tab a weekly Ohio National Guard Ohio Team and Player of the Week. Each weekly winner will receive an award (a banner) from the National Guard.
How it works?
A thread soliciting nominations will be posted/stuck in the JJHuddle Basketball Forums each week. Fans will then nominate top performances. We will announce the weekly finalists (up to 10) on JJHuddle every Monday and voting will be conducted in a special JJHuddle forum. Voting will cease at noon on Friday (1/3), after which the winners will be announced.
Bellbrook: Playing for the first time without teammate Payne Sigman who was inured in a car accident last Sunday, the Eagles ran their win streak to three with a 50-41 win over rival Oakwood. Both teams wore “Play4Payne” shirts in honor of Sigman who remains hospitalized. Bellbrook is 6-1 in the SWBL Southwest Division and trails only Franklin (8-0).
Alter: The Knights, who won for the third time in four games, beat No. 2 ranked Roger Bacon 75-63. Nate Burger scored a career-high 30 points for Alter. He was 8-for-8 from the foul line in the fourth quarter.
Springfield: The Wildcats ran their win streak to six and won for the 10th time in 11 games with a 66-63 OT win over Northmont. Springfield also won at Wayne 69-67.
Vincent Warren: Improved to 12-3 and riding a seven-game win streak after beating Hartley (63-52) in the Route 40 Classic and avenging an early season loss to Portsmouth (68-57) to move into first place in the SEOAL. Reece Patton scored a career-high 27 points in the win over Portsmouth, which snapped the Trojans eight-game win streak.
