The 10th-seeded Reynoldsburg High School boys basketball team closed on a 13-2 run as it beat Walnut Ridge 62-51 in the second round of the Division I district tournament Saturday at Olentangy Orange.

Kevin Gray scored 19 points in the first half and finished with 30 for the Raiders, who improved to 14-8 and will face second-seeded Dublin Scioto in a district semifinal March 7 in the Fairgrounds Coliseum. The Scots finished 11-10

"I think what good players do is take it personally, and that's what Kevin does," coach Chris Rider said. "The play was rather rough at times, and I give our guys credit. We worked all week on a zone, and when we got (a 54-48 lead with 1 minute, 50 seconds left) we switched to a zone and got some stops."

The Raiders outscored Walnut Ridge 18-11 in the second quarter to take a 30-23 lead. Walnut Ridge scored the first two baskets of the second half and trailed just 49-48 with 3:04 remaining.

Reggie Walls then scored two of his 17 points with 2:09 remaining and Gray followed with a three-point play to make it 54-48.

Austin Traylor scored 22 points and Jeremy Qualls had 14 for the Scots.

"Honestly it was the little things that hurt us," Walnut Ridge coach Jason Bates said. "Toward the end we missed some key boxouts."
