The East Boys Bball Team opened their 2019-20 season with a bang last Friday evening at the Ohio Valley Hoops Classic at Mason. The Hawks shook off some early minute jitters and romped to a 75-65 win over Taft. Taft got an early 9 point lead in the first quarter but found their stroke in the 2nd with some excellent team defense and a 14-point quarter by junior Nate Johnson.
East led by as many as 16 in the 2nd half with Johnson finishing with a career-high 28 points. For his effort, he was named the player of the game.
Next up the Hawks begin a 4-game December home stand when they host St. Xavier on Tuesday, Dec. 3rd.
