    Portsmouth Trojans 2020-2021

    What about next season for Portsmouth? Many questions with many possible answers. Probably the #1 question facing the 2021-22 Trojans will be on the offensive side of the court. Can PHS score enough to give themselves a chance to win. 10 times the Trojans scored 46 points or less, and all 10...

    Portsmouth Trojans 2020-2021

    Thanks 3out2in...........unfortunately, what was expected did happen. Fairland completely dominated from the opening tip and handed Portsmouth one of, if not the worst margin of defeat in PHS tournament history with a 85-47 win in the D3 sectional championship @FHS. It got so out of hand in the...

    Portsmouth Trojans 2020-2021

    It will take almost a Biblical miracle for Portsmouth's season to continue after tonight, as the Trojans travel to Proctorville to take on the Fairland Dragons, who got the #1 seed in SE D3. PHS has a 12 game losing streak to FHS, with the majority of those games being blowouts. During that 12...

    Is the gap between the top schools and everyone else greater now?

    The Southeast District has not won a Final 4 state semifinal game since 2012, when Portsmouth beat Ottawa-Glandorf 74-66 in the D3 semifinals. The very next year, in 2013, Warren Local in D2 and Ironton in D3 made the state semis, only to get knocked out before the championship game. In 2016...

    Portsmouth Trojans 2020-2021

    No official word yet on the North Adams or Rock Hill games, but Rock Hill must be played because it's an OVC game. Portsmouth right now is 5-8 in OVC play, and need a win over RH to match last year's conference record of 6-8. Over the last 6 years, the Trojans are 41-42 in OVC play, and were the...
