Rider Hoops...Canton District...Wasson Watch

Well the holidays are over, it's been a few weeks, let's talk hoops.

Jekyll & Riders. What to make of the Riders so's been some good, some bad. Flashes of a dangerous team, flashes of a "1 and done" team. A team that jumps to double digit leads, and then does not look too sure of how to play with a lead.

The Riders sit at 4-2 (3-1 in the OCC), coming off their first on-court loss over the weekend to Mansfield Senior. The Riders held a 16 point lead early, but couldn't put away the athletic Tygers, losing 64-62. 28 Orrville turnovers (not a typo) helped the Tygers in their comeback.

The Riders jump back into action at Akron East tomorrow, then host Clear Fork on Friday 1/9.

Canton District. Here's how the Canton district sits after games on January 3rd. Teams listed by order of record.

Minerva Lions (7-0)
Alliance Aviators (6-1)
Akron Buchtel Griffins (3-1)
Louisville Leopards (5-2)
Akron St Vincent-St Mary Fighting Irish (5-3)
Orrville Red Riders (4-2)
Akron Springfield Spartans (3-3)
Canton South Wildcats (3-4)
Marlington Dukes (3-4)
Akron Hoban Knights (2-4)
Fairless Falcons (2-5)
Norton Panthers (1-5)
Akron Coventry Comets (1-6)
Northwest Indians (1-6)

Here's a detailed breakdown of each team and their results so far.

And here's my top 5...

5b. Louisville
5a. Orrville
4. Alliance
3. Minerva
2. St V.
1. Buchtel

Although both Buchtel and St. V have taken some losses, each team's schedule is very tough and will do more to prepare them for March than any other team in the district.
