Yesberger's key plays help Black Tigers win, 62-60.
Ryan Yesberger's clutch plays in overtime helped the Cuyahoga Falls High School boys basketball team to an exciting 62-60 win over visiting Solon on Tuesday night. His heroics wouldn't have been possible without a pass from freshman Josh Ricker to senior Kyle Rospert for a basket at the end of regulation that tied the score at 56. The victory was particularly sweet for coach Rob Slone, who has lamented the Black Tigers' inability to close out games. "Right now it does," Slone said when asked if the win erased some of the heartbreaking losses. Cuyahoga Falls improved to 5-11 while Solon dropped to 6-11. "It's about time we got a big win," said Yesberger, a junior who finished with 14 points. Cory Asbury led the Black Tigers with 17. His …

Black Tigers battle hard against rival Walsh Jesuit, but fall 69-60.
Cuyahoga Falls boys basketball coach Rob Slone refused to cry foul after a 69-60 home loss to Walsh Jesuit on Tuesday night. Many Black Tigers fans were upset that the home team went to the foul line only 14 times as opposed to the 43 chances given the Warriors. "That's our fault," Slone said. "The way we play makes me get on the officials to try and get a call. We don't attack the basket. They did, and they got the calls." Walsh Jesuit junior Evan Payne especially drew calls. He scored 28 points on a variety of drives to the basket. Sometimes his shots went in; other times he went to the foul line and converted. "He's a very good player and they are a good team," Slone said. "We knew that coming in, but we were right there with them into …
