Carroll’s offense unplugged in D-II district final setback

Hughes flexed its defensive might on Carroll, limiting the Patriots to just eight first-half points and posting a 57-38 win in a boys high school basketball Division II district final on Thursday night at the University of Dayton Arena.

It was the first game of a doubleheader. Top-seeded Trotwood-Madison (22-3) plays Chaminade Julienne (11-14) in the second game.

Coming out of the Springfield sectional, Carroll (16-10) couldn’t get any offense going and was held to two first-quarter points. Hughes raced to a 34-8 first-half lead and the rout was on.

Carroll had a five-game win streak snapped. The Patriots were led in scoring by Eli Ramsey’s 13 points. Matt Cogan, son of coach Tim Cogan, added 10.

Shawn Hawkins had 16 points to lead Hughes. D.J. Brewton added 13 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.
