Tournament Time

It's tournament time for the high schools, so today we headed out to Aiken to check in with the Falcons. This high flying team suffered through a 3 game losing streak in February before closing out the season with wins over St. Xavier and Western Hills. Coach Leon Ellison says he had to sit a lot of guys during the losing streak because some of his guys were slacking on the academics. Now that they have that under control, the Falcons should be back to full strength for the tournament. This team is loaded with stars, and that proved to be a tough challenge for the young coach. Here's coach Ellison and senior forward Darren Goodson on the topic.


In the first round Aiken will meet Harrison, a team that went 0-16 during the regular season. That game is 6 p.m., Tuesday night, March 3, at U.C.'s Fifth Third Arena. Should the Falcons win that, and we think they will, Aiken would meet the winner of Loveland and Winton Woods. That should be a treat.
