BEREA — Warren G. Harding’s boys basketball team was tested once again — this time it was against an improved Cleveland Heights team.
The Tigers surged ahead 19-9 in the third quarter and held on for a 69-64 victory at Sunday’s Scholastic Play by Play Classic at Baldwin Wallace University. Cleveland Heights led the entire second half.
The Raiders usual suspects — Lynn Bowden and Derek Culver (West Virginia recruit) — led WGH (4-6) with 17 and 16 points, respectively.
