Boys HS Hoops: Strong Second Half Fuels Medina To 72-53 Win Over Green

MEDINA, OHIO — Despite losing 2019-2020 GCC Player of the Year Kyle Szumski, Medina looks to be just as good as last season.

Maybe even better.

The Bees rode a 28 point clinic from Corey Tripp and showcased their depth in an impressive 72-53 victory over Green.

Green, who won 19 games last season, came out with a competitive first half performance behind Zack Oddo and Trey Martin.

Medina led 18-13 after the first before Green was able to cut the deficit to 29-27 at halftime.

Green continued to keep the game close in the third quarter, tying the game up 36-36 near the halfway point.

At this point, this explosive Medina offense began to take over.

A 15-4 run for the Bees gave them their largest lead of the game at 59-47 with just 4:41 to play in the fourth quarter.

Medina still wasn’t done, adding several more buckets down the stretch.

The Bees outscored Green 21-10 in the final frame to close out an impressive showing in their home opener.

Despite a solid 24 point night for Trey Martin, Medina showed off their well rounded starting lineup, as well as impressive bench depth.

Corey Tripp, who currently holds offers from Bowling Green and Cleveland State, finished with a game high 28 points.

Solid nights for Tre Hammond, Brandon Geschke, and others fueled Medina to the 19-point victory Friday night.

Medina will have a quick turnaround, as they host St. Ignatius on Saturday. Green is scheduled to face Hoover next Tuesday.
