Portsmouth finished last week with 2 more wins, on Friday beating Coal Grove 54-36, then on Saturday traveled to Chesapeake and came away with a 59-36 win. The Trojans, now 11-4, are 6-3 in the OVC, good for 3rd place in the 8 team conference, with still a chance to move up in the standings. 6-2 junior Daniel Jordan had 2 excellent games for PHS, scoring 18 points on Friday, then adding 13 points on Saturday. He has started to really play well offensively. Mike Malone had 15 points vs. Chesapeake, all 3 pointers, while 6-5 junior Gabe Gambill had 10 points in one of his best games of the season.

Portsmouth has a very important week ahead, with games at South Point on Tuesday, home with Chesapeake on Friday, then close on Saturday with a home game with Wheelersburg. With the sectional draw just a week away, these games could very well be important for the Trojans to get a favorable bracket at the Waverly sectional.

Coach Eugene Collins raised his career record at PHS to a very fine 133-52. This is his 8th season, and he is currently the 3rd winningest coach in PHS history, and has the 3rd longest tenure as well.

Portsmouth raised its record to a very fine 12-4 with a very exciting 71-66 win at South Point on Tuesday. The Trojans trailed for virtually the whole game, and the Pointers had a 4 point lead with less than a minute to go. But they didn't play keep away, and DJ Eley made a huge steal with 15 seconds to play to set up Portsmouth's chance to tie or win the game. With just .3 of a second to go, Eley was fouled on a 3 point attempt and made the first 2 FT's to tie the game at 60. After a SP timeout, Eley missed the 3rd attempt and the game went into OT.

In OT, the Pointers hit back to back 3's to give them a 66-60 lead. The Trojans responded by closing the game on an 11-0 run for the win. Eley, Daniel Jordan, and Jahmir King sparked the comeback, especially at the FT line. Kendal Reynolds led the Trojans with 23 points, while Eley had 15 and Jordan 12.

Portsmouth is now 7-3 in OVC play, with a sweep of Ironton and South Point. The Trojans will entertain Chesapeake on Friday.

Some said this would be a rebuilding year but Portsmouth is really having themselves quite a season. Keep it going Trojans.

3out2in: The Trojans are doing much better than I thought they would. I did predict 14-8, but I wasn't convinced about that. With the remaining schedule, I think we have a good chance to get at least 15 wins, maybe 16.

If Portsmouth can get to 15 wins, it will be the 43rd time in school history that a Trojan team has won at least 15 games.

Also, it looks good that the Trojans will get no worse than the #2 seed at the Waverly sectional. With the projected matchups, there's a good chance that PHS can win the 63rd sectional in school history, and get the opportunity to play in the district at Athens, something they missed out on last season.

Portsmouth upped its record to 14-4 with wins over Chesapeake on Friday and Wheelersburg on Saturday. The Trojans defeated the Panthers 52-48 to secure their 13th win and improve to 8-3 in OVC play. PHS then won a thrilling 77-75 OT win over the 12-5 Pirates, making it 11 wins in the past 12 games vs Wheelersburg. The Trojans had 4 players in double figures, led by Kendal Reynolds with 23. Mike Malone, Reese Johnson, and Daniel Jordan also had double digit scoring as well. Portsmouth's FT shooting has been outstanding in the last half dozen games, and that proficiency at the stripe secured the win over Wheelersburg.

The Trojans will entertain state ranked Fairland on senior night Tuesday.

The Trojans lost to #3 AP ranked Fairland (17-1) last night at Portsmouth 65-55. The Trojans had the lead after each of the first 3 quarters, but went 5 minutes in the 4th quarter scoring only 2 points, and that proved to be their undoing as the Dragons took full advantage of the scoring drought. The same shots that were falling for the Trojans the first 3 quarters couldn't find their mark in the 4th. Portsmouth also committed 7 turnovers in the 4th quarter, compared to only 5 over the first 3 periods.

In the 2 games vs. Fairland this season, the 4th quarter was not kind to the Trojans. In the first game, down only 8 at FHS, Portsmouth was outscored by 11 points and lost by 19. Last night, with a 4 point lead going into the 4th, PHS was outscored 23-9 with the Dragons clinching the game at the FT line as the Trojans had to foul. Reese Johnson led PHS with 13 points, while DJ Eley pitched in 11.

Still, a very good effort by the Trojans who proved that they could play with the SE district's best team that is a legitimate contender for the D3 Final 4. Collin Van Horn, 6-6 junior center for the Dragons, did not play and hasn't played in about 6 weeks due to injury. He is very close to coming back and that will make Fairland even tougher to beat. Even without him they are still very good.

Portsmouth is now 14-5 on the season, 8-4 in the OVC, and finish the season Friday at Rock Hill, Saturday at South Webster, and the following Friday at Gallia Academy.

Portsmouth is in a very strong position to get the #2 seed at the D3 Waverly sectional. Lynchburg Clay most likely will get the #1 seed, with perhaps Eastern Brown or Adena getting the #3 seed. The Waverly sectional is not as strong as it has been in recent years. In contrast, the D3 Jackson sectional is much stronger in 2017. Fairland and Oak Hill look to fight for that #1 seed, with Fairland probably getting the nod. Both the Dragons and Oaks have only 1 loss. Wheelersburg is 13-5 and could end up with the #3 seed. Minford, South Point, and Alexander are all over .500.

If Portsmouth were to end up the #2 seed, and Fairland getting #1, the Trojans and Dragons would not meet until the district finals. If Oak Hill gets #1 and Fairland #2, FHS and PHS would not meet until the regional finals. Fairland should easily advance to the district finals, and Oak Hill should get that far at least. Portsmouth's route to the district will be difficult, given that the Trojans have been in a lot of tight games so far. Quite honestly, though, it would take an upset to keep the Trojans from at least getting to the district. Upsets do happen, though, and PHS has to be on their game to keep that from happening. Over the last 6 years, Portsmouth has the best tournament resume of any school in the SE district, having been to 2 Final 4's (2011 and 2012), a district final (2014), and a regional final (2015).

Portsmouth secured its 15th win for the 43rd time in school history with a 73-64 win over the Rock Hill Redmen at RHHS. The Trojans trailed 16-7 in the first quarter, and by 1 at the half, but PHS took control in the 3rd quarter, and built as much as a 10 point lead. But RH cut that lead to only 3 points with just a minute to play. The Trojans sealed the game with a key steal for a layup and some clutch FT's. Kendal Reynolds led PHS with 25 points while DJ Eley pitched in 21. Mason Darby of Rock Hill scored 41. The Trojans are now 15-5 on the season, and will play at South Webster on Tuesday and close the regular season at Gallia Academy on Friday. The game at Gallia will be to see who finishes second in the OVC.

Portsmouth received the expected #2 seed at the D3 Waverly sectional and will play the Lucasville Valley Indians (2-16) February 21 at 6:15 PM. If the Trojans win that game, they will play the winner of North Adams (10-9) vs. West Union (5-14) on February 22 at 6:00.

If PHS can win the sectional, the opponent will be Wheelersburg, South Point, Rock Hill, or Wellston in the district semifinal. If Portsmouth is fortunate to advance to the district final, they most likely will have to play Fairland for the championship.

One game at a time, though. GO TROJANS!!

South Webster routed Portsmouth 64-38 last night at SWHS. The Jeeps dominated the Trojans from the opening tip, and PHS could never mount a rally of any type. It was PHS's poorest performance of the season. Still, the Trojans have won 15 games and have exceeded expectations from many Trojan fans, including myself. Last night was just one game on the schedule, and Portsmouth is still very capable of making a tournament run if their shots are falling. That aspect is very critical to any success that the Trojans have, given that they have no post presence and rely so much on jump shooting. Kendal Reynolds led PHS last night with 10 points, while Reese Johnson added 6. Reynolds passed Jeff Lisath on the all time PHS scoring list with over 1,300 points.

Portsmouth can finish in 2nd place in the OVC all by themselves as they travel to Gallia Academy on Friday to play the Blue Devils (14-5). Both teams are 9-4 in conference play.

Portsmouth ended the regular season on a sour note with an 81-57 loss at Gallia Academy. Though the final margin was 24 points, the Trojans battled hard and stayed within 8 points in the 4th quarter. GAHS pulled away in the final 3 minutes, and for the 2nd time this season, the Blue Devils' Justin Peck proved too much for PHS, as he scored 34 points, virtually all of them layups or putbacks. The Trojans did force GAHS into a good number of turnovers which kept them in the game despite Peck's outstanding play. Gallia Academy (16-6) finishes 10-4 and in 2nd place in the OVC. Portsmouth finished a respectable 3rd at 9-5.

Portsmouth finishes the regular season at 15-7, same as last year. I consider it a good season considering the Trojans are purely a jump shooting team with no size or post presence. If PHS is to advance in the tournament, they will have to shoot the ball well because if they don't, they will struggle to win against anybody.

Coach Eugene Collins is now 137-55 in this his 8th season at the helm of the Trojans. Portsmouth's all time record now stands at 1,432-760, good for 8th place on the all time wins list in Ohio.

Portsmouth opened sectional play with a convincing 67-47 win over Lucasville Valley. The Trojans jumped to a 23-7 lead after the 1st quarter, in large part due to an effective press that caused numerous Indian turnovers. Valley settled down in the 2nd period, outscoring PHS 16-13 to trail 36-23 at the half. The Trojans, though, were never seriously challenged after halftime, and built the lead to as much as the final margin of 20 points. Mike Malone scored all 15 of his points in the first half, while Kendal Reynolds led PHS with 28 points. Reynolds is now the 4th leading scorer in PHS history with over 1,300 points. Christian Breech led Valley with 19 points. The Indians and Trojans have split 4 tournament meetings since 2010. Valley won in sectional play in 2010, and the district championship in 2014, while Portsmouth beat the Indians in the 2012 district championship and last night.

PHS will play North Adams for the sectional championship on Saturday at Waverly. A win would give Portsmouth its 63rd sectional title.

The win marked the 39th time in Portsmouth history that a Trojan team has achieved at least 16 wins in a season. A win Saturday would give Portsmouth HS a 17th win for the 34th time.

North Adams defeated Portsmouth in the 2009 sectional at Waverly 77-75 in OT. The Green Devils were undefeated going into that game, while the Trojans were 10-11.

Portsmouth won the 63rd sectional title in school history with a hard fought 50-43 victory over North Adams. The Trojans trailed 12-6 after 1 quarter, but led 16-13 at the half, holding the Green Devils to 1 point in the 2nd quarter. Portsmouth extended the lead to 39-27 in the second half, only to see NA close to 46-43 with about a minute to play. The Trojans made their FT's in the clutch to seal the win. Kendal Reynolds scored 22 points to lead PHS, while Reese Johnson scored 17.

Portsmouth (17-7) has won at least 17 games in a season 34 times. The Trojans will advance to play South Point in the district semifinal. PHS beat the Pointers in both games in OVC play, but they were tough wins. I expect it to be another close battle the 3rd time.

GO TROJANS!!!

Portsmouth senior Kendal Reynolds is now the 3rd leading scorer in PHS history with 1,421 points. Reynolds moved past 1965 first team All-American Larry Hisle (1,375 points). Kyre Allison is the Trojans all time leading scorer at 1,688 points, while Craig Tubbs (1979) comes in 2nd with 1,485. Jeff Lisath, the leading scorer for the Trojans in the state tournament for the 1978 Class AA state champion, is fifth with 1,256.

Portsmouth's season came to an end Sunday as the South Point Pointers defeated the Trojans 59-42 at the Convocation Center in Athens. The Trojans led 28-21 at the half, but turnovers and cold shooting doomed PHS in the final 16 minutes, and SP took full advantage of it. Portsmouth had beaten the Pointers in both regular season meetings, but couldn't do it a 3rd time. SP advances to the district final vs. Fairland. The Pointers lost big to the Dragons twice in OVC play.

Kendal Reynolds ended his outstanding career at PHS with 13 points and unofficially around 1,450 points total. Kendal played hard every play and he will definitely be missed next season. Coach Eugene Collins completed his 8th year with an overall record of 139-56, averaging just over 17 wins a season during that span.

Portsmouth loses 5 seniors, but return 3 starters for the 2017-2018 season.......Reese Johnson, DJ Eley, and Daniel Jordan. Portsmouth finishes the 2016-2017 season with an all time record of 1,434-761.

GO TROJANS 2017-2018!!

Interesting list with some great players on it. I remember watching Hisle play in the major leagues. On that subject, did Al Oliver play basketball? I'm also curious about 2 other Trojans from way back. I was surprised Mike Haley wasn't on the all time scoring list. Played on one of Portsmouth's state championship teams and went on to be a very good coach. The other one is Dozier Carter. My dad went to college with him at Cedarville. Big dude and a very good player. Would have been about the same time as Haley. Just wondering if you had any info on these guys. Thanks for all the updates this season and good luck to the Trojans next season.

coachablekid: Don't know at this time where Kendal will be going......but he is definitely good enough to play for someone........he would fit in nicely with a small college. When I find out more, I will post it here.

3out2in: Al Oliver did play basketball, and he told me that he really loved the game. In 1964, Al made a shot to beat Middletown in 3OT. The Trojans that year had Al and Larry Hisle on the same team. Portsmouth lost to the 1964 state champion Dayton Belmont at the Trojans' Grant Gym. Belmont had future stars Bill Hosket and Don May. PHS did make the regionals that year, only to lose to Grove City.

Mike Haley could very well be a 1,000 point scorer, but there is no previous official record of his point tally. Unfortunately, Portsmouth HS did a poor job of keeping track of 1,000 scorers, and so, when www.trojanhoops.org was organized in 2011, I was tasked with trying to come up with as many 1,000 scorers as I could. It was a difficult job, as I got information from several sources. So far the list that I have posted is for the most part accurate, but there are a few other players that come into question. Leroy Carr(1954) had virtually the same scoring numbers as Larry Hisle through his junior year, but I don't have his senior year numbers. That's something I have to do this offseason. Also, Mike Lovenguth(1972) had a great career at PHS and went on to play at Kent State. He could very well be another possible 1,000 scorer.

5 of the top 8 scorers on the list played in the state tournament........Craig Tubbs, Jeff Lisath, Dion McKinley, Wayne Evans, and Damond Mannon. Tubbs and Lisath started on the 1978 Class AA state champions, Mannon started on the 1990 D2 state runnerup, while McKinley and Evans started on the 2012 D3 state runnerup. Tubbs and Lisath played college ball at Miami of Ohio, Allison is currently playing at Marshall, while Mannon played at Baylor. Hisle's previous single game scoring record of 41 points was broken by McKinley when he scored 42 points vs. Logan in 2012. McKinley's record was then broken the very next year by Jayllen Carter, who tallied 44 points vs. Jackson. Carter is currently playing at Shawnee State.

Thanks, guys, for your interest in Portsmouth Trojans basketball. I will try to keep you and the rest of the state up to date about our basketball program.

Very early preview of the Portsmouth Trojans 2017-2018:

The Trojans will return 3 starters.......5-8 DJ Eley (3rd team SE district), 6-1 Reece Johnson (honorable mention SE district), and 6-2 Daniel Jordan. Gone is Kendal Reynolds, who graduated as the 3rd all time scorer in PHS history.

Portsmouth's main challenge for next season will be offense. Losing Reynolds (16.1 PPG) leaves the Trojans in a scoring dilemma. None of the 3 returnees averaged double figures, so Coach Eugene Collins will have a major task on his hands to find who can put the ball in the basket on a consistent basis.

The JV team did not have a good season, either they went .500 or under, while the freshmen went about 4-10. Right now, the only standout coming up from the JV squad is Matthew Fraulini, who will be a 6-2 sophomore. Fraulini could be a much needed offensive boost, as he can drive to the basket or knock down the 3. He will start at either PG or SG. In the post could be 6-5 Gabe Gambill or 6-3 Myquel McKinley.

Overall, the Trojans could be looking at a season under .500, unless there is big time improvement on offense from the returnees. Defensively and athletically, Portsmouth should be able to compete with about anybody. It's difficult to win in basketball if you struggle on offense, though. Hopefully there will be some pleasant surprises in 2017-2018 to make me feel better about the Trojans.

GO TROJANS!!!

Early prediction for the Ohio Valley Conference in 2017-2018:

1. Fairland.......all 5 starters back.....all seniors
2. Gallia Academy......all 5 starters back
3. Ironton........4 starters back
4. Coal Grove......all 5 starters back
5. South Point.....2 starters back
6. Portsmouth.....3 starters back.....all seniors
7. Chesapeake....4 starters back
8. Rock Hill.........4 starters back

The OVC should be a stronger conference in 2017-2018. Fairland will still be the prohibitive favorite, and will be looking to extend a 28 game winning streak in conference play, although it may be tougher this time around. The Dragons will be one of the favorites in the state to reach the Final 4. South Point is the only school that has fewer returning starters than Portsmouth. Fairland and Portsmouth are the only 2 schools whose returning starters are all seniors.

Kendal Reynolds was previously reported as the 3rd leading scorer in Portsmouth history. His unofficial total of 1,421 is in error. Although his official point total is not known, it is less than the 3rd place total of 1,375 posted by the great Larry Hisle, but still good for 4th place, ahead of Jeff Lisath's 1,256. Coach Eugene Collins, assistant coach Matt Payton, and myself have been working to provide an accurate list of 1,000 point scorers in PHS history. Sometimes point totals are miscalculated, and my apologies for reporting the erroneous total on Reynolds. When I find out his exact total, I will post it.

Portsmouth will be playing in the Portsmouth Clay summer league starting in June. Returning players Daniel Jordan, Gabe Gambill, and Matthew Fraulini are playing AAU basketball this spring. Returning PG DJ Eley is running track.

The Trojans will not be going to Florida in the 2017-2018 season, but most likely will host their own tournament around Christmas.

Portsmouth ended the year with an all time record of 1,434--760. The current decade of 2010-2017 is the 2nd winningest decade in Trojan history, topped only by the 1980's in which PHS amassed a remarkable 197-50 mark, with 8 seasons of 20 or more wins, capped by a best of 27-1 in 1988, which culminated with a D2 state title. This current decade has produced three seasons of 20 or more wins, with the best being 24-3 in the 2011-2012 campaign. Portsmouth has had only 1 losing decade in its decorated history, that being from 2000-2009, when PHS posted a 100-121 record. The 2 Final 4 appearances in 2011 and 2012 make the current decade the 4th in which Portsmouth has made at least 2 appearances in the OHSAA state tournament. The other decades were the 1920's, 1930's, and the 1980's. Only from 1950-1959 and 2000-2009 did the Trojans fail to make the state tournament.

Looking forward to next basketball season!! GO TROJANS!!

Kendal Reynolds will be playing basketball at the University of Rio Grande next season. Reynolds scored 1,341 points in his distinguished career, good for 4th all time on the Trojans career scoring list. He is another player under the tutelage of Coach Eugene Collins who will be extending his career beyond HS. Others include Kyre Allison, Portsmouth's all time leading scorer, who is currently playing at Marshall University. Tory Horne played at Lake Erie College, Andrew Bendolph played at Shawnee State, Jayllen Carter is currently playing at Shawnee State, while Sky Oliver went to Rio Grande for basketball and baseball but is transferring to Marshall for the upcoming school year.

Congratulations to Kendal on continuing his basketball career at URG.
