RELATED: Judge puts Dunbar back in basketball tourney
On March 6, a judge put Dunbar back into the boys basketball postseason tournament after the OHSAA had disqualified the team for using an ineligible player. The OHSAA said an unnamed Dunbar player, who played in a tournament game, should have been ineligible because he was never properly suspended for his part in a Jan. 10 on-court altercation.
But Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Michael Krumholtz said he found no proof, in video evidence or testimony, that the player in question went on the court for that Jan. 10 fight. Dunbar was reinstated to the tournament, defeated Middletown Fenwick, then lost to Woodward in the district finals.

DPS Superintendent Elizabeth Lolli did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the meeting Wednesday. OHSAA spokesman Tim Stried said his organization was aware of the meeting but would only add that OHSAA would issue a press release after the meeting.
