According to Mapquest the distance between the two schools is 2.0 miles.
This really makes it tough on either Shawnee or Buchtel. Whoever survives that game likely gets the Irish. And that would be to just get to the title game; which could set up either of those teams for a major "let-down" game if that's the way it went. It's going to be fun no matter what!

The Griffs are looking at a great regional final matchup with Lima Shawnee. You know, only OHSAA could have two schools that are less than 5 miles apart in different regions!
In all honesty, not too upset with OHSAA, this set up allows for the possibility (yes possibility, not drawing any conclusions) of two Akron teams making the State final 4.

As the higher seeds both teams picked which region the would be assigned to this year. OHSAA did not assign them separate regional brackets the coaches/AD made this decision. Plus it makes sense why would you want one of your best matchups in the entire division to occur in a regional final game which has been the case the past 15 years or so.

Really! That's interesting. I didn't think teams had a choice as to which region they were in. You learn something new every day! Anyway, if it works out that way, a STVM/ Buchtel state semifinal would be a great game.

Right, I would think the OHSAA would NOT want to open up can of worms by sending the Irish to the NW Regional anymore. I realize they were beat over there a couple of times after LBJ but that was by generational teams and before SVSM found their "groove".

Who does Shawnee have in the Regional Semifinal? TCC is only 5-9 though they actually have a common opponent with the Griffs, Luthern East.

They did like that this year due to Covid. This is the only time they did it based on seed then region versus region then seed.

By any chance would someone have final boy's basketball records for the City Series? I am looking for conference and overall regular season records.
