The Indian Hill Boys Varsity Braves basketball team's opening bracket game in the Ohio State District II Basketball Tournament was against the Norwood Indians Saturday afternoon at the Mason "Arena", within the Sports Complex behind the Mason Middle School. The Braves were victorious against Norwood in the final game of 2014 before the Winter Break, but the Indians were reported to be much improved. In response, Indian Hill came out shooting hot and never looked back, cruising to an opening tournament victory, 68 to 48.

Postponement due to weather did not deter the Indian Hill Braves Boys from closing out their regular basketball season in exciting fashion at Goshen on Monday. In a genuine battle for headlines, the Freshman team certainly earned its share by emphatically winning its final game to complete a perfect 19-0 season. For its own share, the Varsity team mounted a comeback that began in the closing seconds of the first half and carried over to the second, before requiring a three-point shot with only seconds remaining to defeat the Goshen Warriors, 62 to 61.
Congratulations to Freshman Coach Adam Burch on completing his second unblemished campaign, to Assistant Coach, Dr. Doug Trout, for his significant contributions, and to every member of the Braves Freshman team. Ironically, it was the Freshman player on the Varsity team that provided the last second heroics, as Colin Shaw hit a well contested three-point shot from the right corner to puctuate the Braves comeback effort in a highly satisfying victory which guarantees Varsity Coach Tim Burch, father of Adam, another winning season.
