Good preview. When did the Enquirer stop doing high School basketball league previews? Football had one but none for hoops. Im ready to get rid of my digital subscription.


I think Walker is pre season favorite for POY
and Wyoming pre season favorite as league champ

With all of these teams shutting down I'm curious if/how CHL makes up these games?
Could be champs are the team that stays the "healthiest" and gets the most games in.

Wyoming- Losing Prater will be tough (20 ppg and 7 rebs and 2 blks)
Walker and Crayton will be the 2 main guys running the show

Deer park- Loses a lot of talent and HC.
Is Munson still there? Jones (transfer from Taylor?)

Taylor-returns 3 of 5 starters.
Danny Austing (Already scored 19 in their opener vs st. Bernard) will be key in running their offense. Hilvert (9ppg 8reb) will step up and
Jacob Swiegard will have the ball more as well.

Indian Hill- returns their Top 3 scores Wachs, Lopez and Thorton. Should have a talented team. Dont know how overall Covid delays hurts their season or chance at a CHL Championship

Mariemont- Megown is or isn't playing? (thought I saw somewhere someone said he was injured? or not playing maybe I am wrong?)
Senes returns who avg'ed 10 ppg last season

Finneytown- Holloway transferring to prep is a huge loss to the team. Dont know how the Covid shut down will affect them.

Madeira- Lose their #1 pt scorer Solinski. Alot of production going to need to come from Schneider and the little Craavak (avg'ed 8ppg as a freshmen)

Reading- Return their top 2 scorers Scott (15ppg) and Stidham (9ppg) Alot of youth that got ALOT of Varsity time last year. Dont know how the Covid shut down will affect them.

My prediction

League Champ- Wyoming
2nd- Taylor
3rd- Indian Hill
4th- Mariemont
5th-Madiera
6th-reading
7th-deer park
8th- Finneytown

It's looking like RIP Deer Park Elite. The circus has left town and left the DP program a mess.
Program for sure a mess don’t even think they r having a JV team. And Jones is playing for CCPA he transferred when Reggie revels the asst coach left

First league game in the books.
Taylor 71. Madeira 62.
Taylor won all three games at Madeira. Can’t imagine how long it’s been since that happened.

And many of those idiots thought that Gentry was building a program. All he did was recruit kids to build an AAU team for himself and his son and then leave town when it all fell apart.

Enquirer had an article this morning highlighting some of the major transfers/departures from area high schools.

For the CHL schools that were mentioned:

Deer Park
Tre Munson - now at International Sports Academy (ISA Prep) in suburban Cleveland
Ani Elliot - now at United Prep in Columbus

Finneytown
Kodee Holloway - now at KEBA Prep in Cincinnati

The article also mentioned junior Kollin Tolbert from Mt. Healthy is now at KEBA Prep.

Looks like Austing is off to a fast start for Taylor this year. Is Madeira really starting four sophomores?
danny scored 19 and 22 so far! Hopefully he stays healthy. He may give Walker a run for his money on POY!

Conner Cravaack is legit. He scored 23 against taylor. He avg'ed 8 a game last year as a freshmen
looks like he played all varsity as well 20+ mins in most games.

Madeira will start 3 or 4 Sophomores and 1 or 2 juniors...and Cravaack started every game on varsity last year as a frosh...and is just getting stronger and better

How many Cravaacks can there be? Seems like there's been one in CHL basketball for 8 years.

Good for Wyoming. IH played at St. X last season and only lost by 8, so hopefully Wyoming can stay competitive as well.

Wyoming lost to St X by 18. Judging by the box score Wyoming didn't play that poorly. They shot over 50% and held St X to 46%. They were outrebounded badly though. With offensive rebounds and turnovers, Wyoming attempted 19 fewer shots than St X. It's hard to tell right now because Wyoming has played two tough teams, but they don't seem to have too much outside of Walker and Crayton.

Nothing besides Walker and Crayton. And no size at all. I saw Walker playing the middle of their zone. Going to be tough for them to do much come tourney time I think.

They should still cruise through most of the CHL, but I suspect that Mariemont and Indian Hill’s size could give them some problems. Good to see them scheduling some tough out of conference games though.

Taylor was in a close one last night!

lost 65-59 to CHCA Austing had 19 and Hilvert 18pts and 16 rebounds. Kearns off the bench had 12
Although its a short sample size through 4 games

Austing avg 18 pts 2 stls
Kearns avg 12pts 2 stls
Hilvert avg 11pts 8 rebounds
Zieverink 10 pts 2 stls

I know its early but I like seeing more guys scoring for the Jackets! 4 avg'ing double digits is nice!

I thought Wyoming would struggle against LaSalle and St X but I’m surprised that they were beaten that badly by McNick. Maybe Walker needs more help than I thought?

Waiting for the scoring line to come out. 41 pts curious how many of those came from walker/Crayton

McNick wasnt bad last year 17 win team (only last to LaSalle by 4 and beat taft by 1) not sure what their team looks like this year.

Maybe the CHL is up for grabs more than some thought? THis year def has things very different
