It was an interesting weekend for Purdue's two commitments over in Ohio. Both players were alive in their respective District finals, but only one advanced.
Dakota Mathias - G - Elida HS, Elida, OH - Elida saw its season end with a 53-51 loss to Bath in their district final. It was a tough defeat, as Elida had already defeated Bath twice on the season. Dakota finished with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and five assists, but struggled in his final HS game. Bath played a double-team on Mathias in the final possession, and a teammate's last shot was off the mark as time expired.
Vince Edwards - F - Middletown HS, Franklin, OH - Middletown won its District final in exciting fashion, as Edwards dished off his 8th assist on the game-winning shot in a 54-53 win over Wilmington to claim its district crown.
Edwards and Middletown moves on to the regional semifinals at Xavier's Cintas Center on Wednesday night. He had 20 points, 8 assists, and 5 rebounds in the win over Wilmington.
