Battle between Chaminade-Julienne and Alter
Dayton Area Correspondent
Posted Feb 1, 2004

OPS had the big game in the Dayton area covered. C-J and Kettering Alter is always a battle in the GCL.

CJ won this close battle from the leadership of their three seniors: Ryan Patrick, Jo-Jo Smith, and Anthony Turner. CJ won the game 57-50.

Patrick purely displayed why he is one of the states best pure point guards. Patrick's dominance of ball control, hitting his pull up jumpers and penetrating at will against Alter's man to man defense and their zone was too much for Alter to handle.

Smith's defense was impressive and Turners cool demeanor on the court and his fluid shots were devastating. CJ hit 7 three pointers and the seniors hit 6 of them. Smith came into the game midway thru the 1st qtr. and hit back-to-back 3's that gave CJ momentum. Patrick scored a team high 22 points and junior Derrick Brown hit 11 points.

Alter would not go away easily as Kevin Riazzi had 12 second half points and finished the game with 16 points and Zach Freshwater connected for 10 points. CJ has the No. 1 ranking in the Dayton Daily News rankings and is in 1st place in the GCL North with a 7-3 record while Alter is 2nd in the GCL North at 3-7.
