Lady Tigers Begin State Title Defense Friday
The Twinsburg girls basketball team faces the Reynoldsburg Raiders in a "Battle of the 'Burgs."
Only one game stands between the Twinsburg Lady Tigers basketball team and another chance at the state title.
The Tigers will play the Reynoldsburg Raiders tonight at Value City Arena at the Jerome Schottenstein Center in Columbus. Tip off is at 8 p.m.
Lead by University of Maryland recruit Malina Howard, the Tigers have a 23-3 (8-0) and have yet to be beat in Ohio. The Tigers used a strong second half to advance to the state final four, beating rival Solon, 54-37 last week.
But it won't be that easy. The Raiders will be tough competition, ranked No. 1 in the state by the AP with a 26-0 record.
But can they stop Malina Howard, who was recently named the Gatorade Ohio Girls High School Player of the Year? We'll find out tonight in Columbus.
