COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Division IV boys basketball All-Ohio teams were announced Tuesday by a statewide media panel. The teams were selected by members of the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association.
The Ohio Valley Publishing area had a pair of players chosen to the D-4 squads as honorable mention selections, with Eastern and South Gallia both coming away with a single honoree.
Representing the Rebels on the list for a second straight year is 6-foot-3 senior guard Braxton Hardy, who scored 15.8 points per game and helped the Red and Gold to a 14-10 record this winter.
Garrett Barringer — a 6-foot-5 junior center — represented 11-12 Eastern on with his first All-Ohio basketball honor, scoring 15 points and grabbing eight rebounds per game.
Both local selections were also second team honorees on the 2019 OPSWA All-Southeast District squad for Division IV this winter.
