Great Honor For Portsmouth Trojans Basketball!!

While watching the Buckeye Elite Showcase games at Portsmouth HS this past weekend, I noticed that our state championship trophies were missing along with the pictures of the state championship teams which have always been posted on the east wall of the gym lobby. Yesterday I found out why.........I talked with AD Joe Albrecht and he told me that the trophies and pictures are being displayed at the OHSAA office in Columbus. I don't know if this is a yearly thing that the OHSAA does, but it is a great honor for Portsmouth Trojans basketball!!

2016-2017 Portsmouth Trojans Game Scores and Highlights

First game of the season: Portsmouth 47, Waterford 44..........the Trojans trailed the Wildcats 32-21 at halftime, but Coach Eugene Collins decided to press Waterford after the break, and it was the difference in the game. WHS scored only 12 points after halftime, and Portsmouth forced 17 turnovers. 6-3 senior Kendal Reynolds came through with some clutch baskets/FT's in the final 2 minutes. PHS still trailed 38-32 going into the 4th quarter, but won the battle in the final frame 15-6.

The OVC Preview 2016-2017

The Portsmouth Trojans will start their 3rd season of Ohio Valley Conference play in 2016-2017. Last season, the Fairland Dragons won the conference crown with a perfect 14-0 league mark. Fairland returns all 5 starters from a year ago, plus several key players off the bench. The Dragons starting 5 were all sophomores a year ago, and still they advanced to the district finals where they lost to eventual regional champion Lynchburg Clay. FHS should be a prohibitive favorite to capture another OVC crown.
