Chris Wormley and the Whitmer Panthers advanced to the finals of the Ohio Division I basketball tournament with a 62-51 win over Lakewood St. Edwards today. He could face Taco Charlton and Pickerington Central in the finals if they advance past Fairfield. More footbal recruits left in the tournament than basketball. Besides Wormley, Whitmer plays 6-8, 300 lb Storm Norton, who will play football at Toledo and guard Leroy Alexander, a Nebraska football recruit. Whitmer's top player is junior Nigel Hayes, who has many D-1 basketball offers and is the younger brother of Ohio State defensive end, Kenny Hayes.
Finals are Saturday at 8:30 pm. Audio available here -
