The Lakota East Thunderhawks and the Dunbar Wolverines opened the 2018 Ohio Valley Hoops Classic on Friday at Hillsboro High School and the Thunderhawks picked up the resounding 62-35 win.
Lakota East used it’s smothering defense to keep the Wolverines on their heels for the majority of the game. Dunbar tried to be aggressive and attack the basket, but many of their drives were nullified by charging calls.
Thunderhawks’ sophomore Nate Johnson was selected as the player of the game.
Next up East opens their home schedule this Friday when they host Fairfield. The Hawks go back on the road Saturday night when they visit St. Xavier.
