from 0-21 to a tournament win

That is the story for the Norwood Indians boys basketball team the past 12 months. Not a single win for Norwood last season, but the Bad News Indians are no more. For one, they have a well-stocked roster of seniors. Senan Odeh sat out last season with a knee injury and Seth Kirby missed last season as well. Plus junior Matt Wallace transferred in from Moeller. Those additions plus the demands of first year coach Kevin Schulte have turned this thing around.
Norwood finished the regular season with a .500 record, 10-10. While just 3-7 in conference play, Norwood made up for that with an opening round tournament win over fourth seeded Clermont Northeastern in Division 2. Coach Schulte feels there's still some non-believers out there.

You almost have to breathe a sigh of relief for the seniors. Here's Senan Odeh and Taylor Wellman on the subject.

Wellman is in his third year running the point for Norwood. He leads the FAVC in assists.

Norwood plays Goshen in the second round of the Division 2 tournament on Wednesday. Tip off is 7 p.m. at Fairfield High School.
