Kolczun & Kolczun Cage Match-Ups

Tuesday 1/17

stlorainTuesday we tip-off the week with a boy match-up between St. Edward and Lorian. At 8-1 Lorain Titans are currently ranked 7th in the state in Division I. Their offense has been sparked all season long by senior Naz Bohannon who is averaging just over 21 points a game. If he misses the shots, the Titans will more than likely get a second chance because of the outstanding rebounding efforts this year by Octavious Wilson. In eight games this season the Titans big mans has pulled down an average of 10 rebounds a game. The Eagles enter the week unranked in the Division I standings, however they have received many votes. After falling to their arch rivals St. Ignatius over the weekend, you can bet the Eagles are anxious to try and get back in the win column. Pregame begins Tuesday night at 7pm on AM930.
