The Big Blue Boys Basketball team helped shut down the storied Middletown High School gymnasium Friday night. In front of a capacity crowd at Wade E. Miller Gymnasium that featured Middie greats through the decades – it was Hamilton that stole the spotlight.
Fueled by enthusiasm and the presence of Middletown legends, the Middies spurred out to an early 16-12 first quarter lead. However, foul trouble would put key players on the bench giving Big Blue a boost in the second quarter. The teams went into the half with Hamilton on top 30-22. The second half was an even match up as well – showcasing a classic, historical Butler County rivalry. Hamilton fended off a late surge by Middletown to hold on to a 64-58 victory that kicked off Greater Miami Conference play.
Big Blue received a career high 28 points from D’Marco Howard as well as 21 points from Jaylen Robinson.
