CONNORVILLE - The timing was just off and Steubenville Big Red missed an alley-oop on its opening possession.

That was all Steubenville missed in the first quarter as it ran the floor scoring at will putting up 30 points on host Buckeye Local in the opening frame en route to an 89-42 romp.

"We talked about getting a good start and came out with a lot of intensity and moving our feet defensively," said Big Red coach Mike Haney. "We were happy with our effort in that first quarter."

Big Red's 6-foot-5 freshman Charles Reeves lit up the scoreboard netting 12 points in the frame.

"They (Buckeye) have been getting better, playing harder and (Brennan) Czuchran is one of the best players in the Valley so we stressed getting after it," Haney said. "Against Weir high they hit the offensive boards so we talked about making sure we rebound and box out."

Buckeye Local did not get many second looks in the first half as Big Red's Lucas Herrington pulled down a game high 12 rebounds in the half.

"You have got to hand it to Steubenville, they are one of the better team's in the area," Buckeye Local coach Greg Haberfield said.

"They play tough, they run the break well, they rebound well," Haberfield admitted. "They just beat us in all facets of the game tonight."

Reeves paced the Big Red with 16 points. Devin Smith and Dionne Wallace Jones both added 11 points.

Czuchran led all scoring with 17 points adding 10 rebounds to post a double-double for the Panthers.

Steubenville improves to 8-2 and will visit the Catholic Central Crusaders Friday night. Buckeye Local falls to 3-6 and is back in action tonight as they host Oak Glen.
