Jake Ohmer scored 32 points and picked up ten rebounds in a 74-52 win for Scott over Perry County Central. Ohmer now has 70 total points in Scott’s two wins. The Eagles pulled away with a huge effort on both ends in the third quarter.

Much like the early game, Scott and PCC went back and forth throughout the first half. The Commodores went scoreless for the first two minutes of the game before Damon Tobler put PCC on the board. The teams went back and forth early on as Ohmer picked up his first three of the game and collected seven points as Scott led 15-14 through one.

Scott was able to build on their lead in the second quarter. Perry County’s bigs were able to get involved in the offense after struggling in the first. Four of the Commodores’ five made shots came from Princewill Anosike and Idris Akinyewi in the second quarter. The two big men and over half of PCC’s first quarter points and combined for 15 of their 18 rebounds. The Commodores weren’t able to keep up with Scott’s outside shooting to end the half. Ohmer knocked down a pair of threes to end the second quarter and lead 33-27 at the break.

The third quarter was the Jake Ohmer show. PCC shot 6/7 in the third quarter, but still found themselves down 19 at the end of the frame. Ohmer scored 12 points as Scott opened up a big lead on the Commodores. The Eagles outscored PCC 23-10 in the third quarter. PCC didn’t attempt a shot for over three minutes in the third as Scott continually forced turnovers and scored in transition.

Scott would ice the game in the fourth quarter with an intense amount of dribbling at the mid court line. The Eagles advanced to the Final Four thanks in large part to the Ohmer Brothers. Jake Ohmer finished with 32 points, ten rebounds, and six assists as he picked up his second double-double of the tournament. Chad Ohmer had 14 points as the brothers nearly outscored PCC in a 74-52 win for Scott.

Scott will take on Bowling Green tomorrow night at Rupp.

    Bowling Green defeated Scott’s whole county. Surely they can take down just Scott.

    Princewill something…… Idris something…….those don’t sound like Perry county names to me. Something fishy is going on……

    IMO, this young man, Jake Ohmer, would be an excellent replacement next season for Hawkins!
