Girls Basketball

Different week, same poll

The Super 7 girls basketball rankings are the same as they’ve been the last two weeks.

What that tells us is that this group of seven teams, with respect to teams like Pickerington North, Eastmoor Academy and Westerville North, might really be the area’s seven best.

The biggest game of last week was held Jan. 26 when Olentangy Orange edged Olentangy 64-60 to take a huge step toward winning a third consecutive OCC-Capital Division title.

Westerville North in the OCC-Cardinal, Reynoldsburg in the OCC-Ohio and either Dublin Coffman or Hilliard Davidson in the OCC-Central also are moving closer to winning league titles. Africentric and Northland seem on a collision course for another meeting in the City League championship game.

Reynoldsburg plays host to Gahanna on Jan. 29 and travels to Pickerington North on Feb. 1 in games that will determine whether it makes it through a third consecutive undefeated season in the OCC-Ohio.

Other big games this week should include Eastmoor at Africentric (Feb. 1), DeSales at Watterson (Feb. 2) and Fairfield Union at Olentangy Orange (Feb. 4).
