Local High School Basketball-Tuesday, February 5

Boys...

Borgia's Jordan Miller drained ten three pointers carrying the Knights to a 51-49 triple overtime victory over the St. Dominic Crusaders. Miller's 34-point performance was amazing especially when you consider that he was still feeling the effects of the flu which kept him out of action the previous night. Casey Kuchem hit the game winner with four-seconds left in the third overtime as Borgia improved to 15-8 overall and 5-2 in the AAA Conference. Michael Schneider scored 17 for the Crusaders, now 12-6 and 2-3. The Borgia Freshmen and JV teams also won.

Elsewhere...

Pacific 59 Owensville 32

St. Clair 64 Union 57

St. James 82 Hermann 56. Jake Ford scored 27 for the Tigers.

Sullivan and Pacific are 3-1
New Haven and Hermann are 1-3
Owensville and Union are both 0-4.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
