GREENE COUNTY — Cedarville senior Colby Cross was named earlier this week to the Division IV All-Ohio second team by a statewide media panel.

The teams were selected by members of the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association.

Cedarville senior Colby Cross was the area’s lone first-team selection. He was a district first team choice in Division IV earlier this season.

Cross, the Ohio Heritage Conference scoring leader for this season, scored 17.2 points per game during the regular season. He was also the OHC leader in assists per game with a 4.3 assists per game average. He led the Indians in field goals made (131), free throws made (79), total points (379) and assists (94). Cedarville finished the season with a 20-6 overall record, and the Indians placed second in the Ohio Heritage Conference’s South division (behind Greeneview) with a 12-4 league mark.

The Ohio Mr. Basketball Award is expected to be announced on Wednesday, March 18.

Last season, Xenia High’s Samari Curtis was the Mr. Basketball Award winner. Curtis recently transferred to Evansville University, after beginning the 2019-20 season as a freshman at the University of Nebraska.
