Golden Eagles News · Big Walnut defeats Buckeye Valley 73-56

The Big Walnut boys basketball team improved to 4-1 with a 73-56 win over visiting Buckeye Valley on Jan. 7, 2021.

Junior Ryan Tripp scored 19 points to pace four Golden Eagles in double figures. Seniors Jagger Barnett, Caleb Conard and Troy Musser added 14, 12 and 11 points, respectively.

“We played well,” said Big Walnut coach Brett Bartlett. “We moved the basketball and got some ball reversals. We can create some close-outs and we’ve got guys who can rip through and get to the rim.

“Offensively we played well, made some threes, made some free throws. Buckeye Valley made some threes to cut the lead, but our kids found a way to win.”

Big Walnut plays at Columbus Academy on Saturday, Jan. 9.
