Reynoldsburg undoubtedly area's most talented team

There seems little doubt that Reynoldsburg has the largest overall stable of talent of any team throughout central Ohio.
The Raiders also might have the best individual talent in junior post player Alyssa Rice, who had back-to-back performances of 22 and 25 points, respectively, after her team lost its first game this season.
Reynoldsburg fell to Brooklyn (N.Y.) Ford 48-41 on Dec. 29 in a semifinal of the eight-team First State Orthopaedics Cup bracket of the Diamond State Classic in Wilmington (Del.) but beat Wilmington (Del.) Ursuline 49-43 in a consolation game the next day and defeated Lancaster 66-32 on Jan. 4.
The Raiders travel Jan. 8 to Newark to face one of the better teams in the OCC-Ohio Division. On Jan. 14, they play at third-ranked Olentangy Orange.
Other big games this week pit Northland at Brookhaven (Jan. 8), Olentangy Liberty at Dublin Coffman (Jan. 8) and Pickerington North at Gahanna (Jan. 8).
