Boys LOVC Tournament


This past weekend on Saturday, February 4th, the OPH boys basketball team competed in the LOVC tournament held at Red Hill High School. The teams participating in the tournament are Red Hill, Duggar, Martinsville, and OPH. All of these teams are very close in skill level. This tournament had great match-ups, where no one had a definite advantage.

Red Hill and Duggar were the first to play at 1:00 PM. Red Hill won this game, directly sending them to the championship game of the tournament. Duggar was to play the loser of the next game for 3rd place.

Next, OPH and Martinsville played at 2:30 PM. Martinsville won the game 55-41, sending them to play in the championship game against Red Hill. OPH was then playing Duggar for 3rd place.

After that, at 4:30 was the game for 3rd place which was OPH vs. Duggar. OPH won this game 44-41 placing 3rd in the LOVC tournament. Duggar placed 4th place.

The championship game was played at 5:30 between the Red Hill Salukis and the Martinsville Bluestreaks. Martinsville won the championship game against Red Hill with a close score of 59-55. Martinsville are the 2024 LOVC tournament champs. Red Hill got 2nd place.

I would also like to mention the great achievement OPH boys basketball made after their game earlier this week. Although we placed 3rd in the LOVC tournament on Saturday, the boys were named 2024 LOVC regular season conference champions after their win over Red Hill on Tuesday. The boys acquired this by winning all of their regular season games against Red Hill, Duggar, and Martinsville. Congratulations to the OPH boys basketball team!
