GREENE COUNTY — Three Greene County area high school boys basketball teams received top-5 seedings within their respective divisions, as the 2020 OHSAA sectional tournament seedings and pairings were announced on Feb. 10.
Beavercreek out of the Greater Western Ohio Conference, and Ohio Heritage Conference neighbors Cedarville and Greeneview, earned high marks when the tournament draws were announced.
The Beavers (13-7) received the Division I No. 2 seed among Dayton area schools. Beavercreek has been on a tear in recent weeks having won eight of its last nine games.
Fresh off a narrow two-point home win over OHC foe Cedarville, Greeneview received the No. 5 seed in Division III. The Rams (16-5) can clinch the OHC South regular season title on Friday with a road win over South Charleston Southeastern.
Cedarville (15-5) received the no. 2 seed in Division IV, and is currently second in the OHC South.
Of the other six Greene County area teams, Bellbrook (9-11, Division II) and Legacy Christian (4-16, Division IV) each earned No. 10 seeds. Carroll (9-11, D-I) and Yellow Springs (0-19, D-IV) both received No. 13 seeds in their respective divisions.
Yellow Springs, it should be noted, recently had to forfeit 11 games after the school discovered it had used an academically ineligible player during the season’s first grading period. The school voluntarily submitted the infraction to the OHSAA.
Two other area schools were seeded in the tournament as well: Xenia (4-15) is Division I’s No. 17 seed, while Fairborn (1-19) is the 21st seed in D-I.
