Paradiso came off the bench to scored 17 points and grab seven rebounds to help the Bears defeat Westerville South 53-42 in the first round of the Division I district tournament Feb. 18 at Hilliard Davidson. Upper Arlington was seeded 17th for the district tournament, and UA coach Chris Savage chose a first round game against 15th seeded South instead of a potential matchup against lower-seeded team. Paradiso's performance made sure Savage's decision was a sound one.
