Graham wins

PIQUA – Graham rallied to defeat Piqua, 59-57, in non-league boys basketball at the Piqua Holiday Tournament on Thursday.

The Falcons trailed, 30-26, at the half.

“It was one heck of a basketball game,” said Graham Coach Grant Hall. “Piqua is a physical team and we did a great job of not letting that throw us off. We were down 9 points at one point in the second half and fought our way back. In the second half we found our shot. Guys were driving to pass to get someone else a better look. At the end of the game we made our free throws.”

For the Falcons (5-3), Ben Sells had 18 points, Zack Vanscoy had 18 and Bode McGuire added 12.

Sells was named to the Piqua Holiday All-Tournament Team and Vanscoy was named the Tournament MVP.

Graham hosts Urbana on Jan. 7.
