    The Reds will need multiple players to have above average seasons, that's kind of the point.

    Phillips is not underappreciated at all, he's just not the player he used to be. We're not dealing...

    Seems strange that OHSAA doesn't rotate regions. O-G played Portsmouth out of Ironton's region in 2012.

      I like Ottawa-Glandorf by 12. Oak Hills was 9-15 against a schedule that I'm not sure of including a number of Kentucky teams and Ironton beat Oak Hills by 17. It seems that Bloom-Carroll is a better team than Ironton.

      ...and I may be totally off base...just a feeling I have.

        This will be a showdown, hard nosed basketball on both sides in this one. Ironton is rich in tourney history and Ottawa-Glandorf is incredible on defense. This game ought to be a battle to the final buzzer.

          You must be thinking of the wrong Oak Hill lol........

          Oak Hill was AP #10 and finished the season 22-5 and they did not play any out of State teams.

            This will be one of the best games of the tournament. Im really excited to see this one. Ironton is one of the scrappiest teams in all of Ohio, bug OG returns players from last year's tourney team. It's going to be a blood bath, but I'm going to take ironton, but I think this game WILL come down to the final shot.

              I stand corrected, fightingtigers. I will have to revise my prediction.

              OG by a whisker.

                Ironton fighting tigers are hungry for 2more W's!!!
                Hoping for a river rat run to the Schott & a return back to southern Ohio with some hardware!!!

                Gotigersgo!!!!

                Hang tough!

                Good luck to all final 4 squads in all divisions.

                Ironton has only lost to 2 teams in Florida during a classic tourney. Both were defending state champs here. They went 1-2 in the tourney. The 2 losses were to large schools, comparable to division 1 in Ohio. 4 & 5 k enrollment++!!

                  I don't know enough about O-G to even attempt an intelligent 'prediction' of the outcome. I do know that Ironton has only lost 2 games, both to schools in FL (I believe) larger than any in Ohio... and 1 was the defending 8A (largest classification) state champion.

                  Ironton's closest margin of victory was 2 pts in the 2nd game of the season against Portsmouth. Of the team's 23 wins, only 3 have been by single digits:

                  Portsmouth - 2nd game of season; later won by 34
                  Cols. Eastmoor DII - 9pts. :lost to Cols. Bishop Hartley in Dist. semi's by 15
                  Akron Buchtel DII - 9pts. : lost to Cuy. Falls Christian Acad. in Dist. finals by 4

                      Ironton is an awesome team. Exceptionally well-coached. Big and strong. A Division I guard who is capable of scoring 40 points any night. Very fast. Their bench may be suspect. I know OG is one of the best teams in the state. So is Ironton. I'll take Ironton by 7 points.

                        I wonder if he was thinking of Oak Hills, in the Cincinnati area?

                            Titan-ic Matchup

                            Big believer in the ole "step-ladder" effect..OG was a semi-finalist last yr & lost to Portsmouth (which btw was disappointing in the final vs Cincy SCD I believe). Having said that think the Titans find a way but I do respect Ironton & their schedule playing those FL teams. The better team will win..just sayin...

                              Ironton is a solid ballclub - without a doubt.
                              In looking over their record, schedule and team stats this will be probably one of the better semi-final games in all divisions.
                              I think however O-G has played a tougher overall schedule and the regional they played through was much better.
                              I like the Titans, their big game experience, and how they match-up with the Fighting Tigers. Titans in a close one !
