Police: Man killed by officers raised gun scoolidge@enquirer.com

A domestic dispute between a man and wife Jan. 1 ended with Springfield Township police officers fatally shooting the man, according to police. The officers were identified as Nick Hornback and Brandon Musgrove. Both were put on paid administrative leave following the incident, which is standard procedure. The man, identified by the Hamilton County coroner as John McLaughlin, 42, was throwing his wife’s belongings out of their Twincrest Court home when police got two calls – the first one from the wife’s friend and then one from the McLaughlin himself. The incident was first reported at 8:15 p.m., with the shots-fired re-

port coming in at 8:41 p.m. The wife’s friend, who called police to report the domestic dispute, told dispatchers the dispute was physical at first. She said there were no weapons that she knew of. Four minutes later McLaughlin called. “I’m having a domestic dispute,” he told a dispatcher at about 8:20 p.m. “We’ve been having problems for months and now her friend is over here. I’m tossing her stuff out. She just needs to go and if her friend keeps coming up here arguing, then there’s a problem ...” He ended the call by saying, “I’m done. It needs to end now.” When police arrived, they said they found two females outside the residence gathering personal belongings in the front yard.

Police have not said exactly what happened when an officer arrived at this house in Finneytown, but eight to nine shots were fired, according to a recording of police radio traffic, and a man ended up dead.

McLaughlin was still inside the house when police entered to talk with him. Police said they spoke with him for 20 minutes in an attempt to “resolve the dispute amicably.” Police said they wanted to make sure the wife could gather her belongings and leave the residence safely. Even though he was cooperative, police said McLaughlin See GUN, Page 2A

Turns out, vodka is good for more than Bloody Marys. In Springfield Township, it can also help clear streets of snow and ice. The township is mixing it up this year and using a by-product of the vodka distillation process to punch up its road salt applications. It got a real-world test in the township Jan. 5. The new de-icing treatment solution is called Ice B’Gone Magic Liquid and it’s made from a blend of magnesium chloride combined with the vodka by-products. Springfield Township public works director Michael Gould says the additive is sprayed onto regular rock salt, transforming it into IBG Magic Solid, a highly effective ice-melting product. IBG Magic Solid is safe to use on concrete, is non-corrosive, does not harm curbside grassed areas, or plants, and continues to melt ice

Mother Nature made the first snow of 2017 a light one, easing local road departments back in to the business of salting and clearing streets. By afternoon, many communities, including Hamilton County, were under a level one snow emergency, which means many school districts were closed Jan. 5, and across the West Side, public works directors said it was a good snow event for reentry to the snow treatment and removal season.

to more than 35 degrees below zero. Gould says the new system got rave reviews. The first snow event of the season was a little tricky, because the temperature hovered in the low 20s. The township has two snow removal protocols and 20 degrees is the dividing line. When temperatures are above 20 degrees, the township adds a salt brine mixture to help road salt stick to the pavement better and activate on contact. It is mixed with the salt inside the auger of the truck to an oatmeal-like consistency before it’s spread onto the road. The strategy is to keep road salt from hitting the pavement and simply rolling into the grass, which happens to about 30 percent of the salt spread using traditional methods. The residual salt may remain on the road that will immediately begin working with the next storm. The prewetting with brine stretches the salt supply. If it’s colder, a different solution is needed. In the past, calcium chloride was the only treatment, which caused harm to plants and increased the corrosion rate for roads and sidewalks. So the township made a change to the IBG solution. Gould says using the brine or the IBG solution means roads are safer sooner. Both help conserve salt. “We probably used about 2025 percent less salt than we would have without the Ice

Comfortable behind his desk or the wheel of a salt truck, he drove a route Jan. 5 for the first snow of 2017. “I’m looking to give that up,” he said. Running the department keeps him plenty busy. Bosarge said 2017’s first snow was easy to handle, with trucks out by 5:30 a.m. and roads were treated with no problems. Trucks were reloaded and ready to make another round of the routes if nec-

The township has nine routes covering more than 110 miles of township streets. The township isn’t responsible for Colerain or Hamilton avenues, which are state routes, or roads such as Pippin or Compton roads, which are the responsibility of the county. Bosarge did have a request for residents. “We ask residents to avoid parking on the street if at all possible during snow events and not to shovel snow from their driveways onto plowed streets,” he said.

snow event was pretty easy to handle, and he hopes the remainder of the winter follows that pattern. Salt trucks were out by 4:30 a.m. in Delhi Township, Ripperger said. It takes about teo and a half hours to clear the township’s 54 miles of streets if applying salt, about five and a half hours if plows are required. Ripperger said most primary roads in Delhi are maintained by Hamilton County. A rule of thumb is if the road has a speed limit of 35 or has the word ‘Road’ in the name, it is likely not a township street. There is a list of county-maintained roads on the township website at www.delhi.oh.us. Some of the streets in the newer subdivisions have not yet been dedicated as Delhi Township roads and cannot be treated by the township. A list of undedicated streets is also available on the township website.

Green Township public services director Joe Lambing says snow removal in his community went off without a hitch. He says his crew put out road salt without additives. “We stuck with that and it worked fine,” he said. Green Township has about 110 road miles to treat, and Lambing says he has 12 routes being cleared. “With a snow like this morning’s, we can clear the whole township in about two hours. If we have to plow, it obviously takes longer. And traffic can also affect our time. We get stuck in it, just like everyone else.” The township has two salt storage locations: a dome on Harrison Avenue and a barn on Blue Rock Road. Lambing says the township should have plenty of salt to get through the rest of the winter. Residents can help salt truck drivers by watching for them on the road, and allowing them the space required to do their jobs. Lambing says in heavier snows, residents should get cars off the streets for plows to get through more easily.

Colerain grad first Columbus murder victim of ‘17 Columbus police are investigating the capital city’s first homicide of 2017 after a Colerain High School graduate was gunned down not far from campus. Tarak Underiner, 20, was found sufTarak fering Underiner from several gunshot wounds near a home on Northwood Avenue, located north of Ohio State’s main campus, around 12:30 a.m. Jan. 5. Underiner was pronounced dead at the scene. According to his Facebook, Underiner was an Ohio State student and a Colerain High School graduate. In The Columbus Dispatch, Underiner is quoted about his involvement in Buckeyes for Concealed Carry in the aftermath of the campus knife attack on Nov. 27. “College campuses and the areas surrounding them present environments rich with potential victims,” Tarak Underiner, an Ohio State student and a member of university’s chapter of Students for Concealed Carry, told a Senate committee, according to the Dispatch. “They’re willing to gamble we’re unarmed and it pays off.” The Dispatch continued, saying Underiner stressed the need for students to be armed and then “read off violentcrime statistics this semester for the University District, including 129 assaults and 21 sex crimes.” Guns on campus have been a hot-button issue, especially after Gov. Kasich signing a bill into law last month “allowing university boards to make an exception in campus policy to allow licensed individuals to carry concealed handguns,” according to an Enquirer report. Police said investigators discovered no signs of forced entry at the residence. The victim’s two roommates were questioned, but neither was considered a suspect. Detectives don’t believe the shooting was random. An investigation is ongoing. Brett Milam and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Remke Markets Makes Online Grocery Shopping Convenient Pat Iasillo Over the past decade our world has become more accustomed to shopping online for the products we want. It makes sense not to waste time and effort shopping if we can just as easily click a few buttons to accomplish the same thing. However, there has been some reluctance when it comes to products we like to feel and touch before we buy. We don’t mind purchasing a book online or the latest toy, but some of us like to try on a pair a shoes before we buy them or like to feel the material on an article of clothing. The same thing is even more true when it comes to shopping for food. We want to be

in control when we pick our apples or our lettuce, or a beef roast. Therefore, shopping online for our groceries has met with some resistance. It can also be painful to sort through over 30,000 products to find what we want. That is all changing. Remke Markets has carefully thought through these issues before we offered an online solution to our customers. After all, we have been in business for almost 120 years, partly because we keep the wants and needs of our customers at the top of the list on our approach to the grocery business.

SCHOOLS NOTEBOOK Winton Woods High School » Even as a freshman, Matthew Bernardo is having a big impact inside and outside of the classroom at Winton Woods High School. “Matthew is a Winton Woods Warrior in the truest sense of the word,” guidance counselor Brad Tash said. “He’s maintained straight As since he has entered high school, yet he’s extremely humble about his achievements, never bragging or putting others down. Instead he is a natural leader, helping and encouraging others with high energy and a positive attitude. He often takes the lead in group projects, and his teachers say he does a great job.” Bernardo was honored as the district’s KiwanisGold Star Student of the Month for December. Tash said his first interaction with Bernardo occurred because of a scheduling conflict. “Due to his demanding honors schedule, Chinese 2 was unable to fit in his schedule,” Tash said. “The principal recommended he go into a class with older Chinese 3 students, but I wasn’t sure how Matthew would respond to that. I was pleasantly surprised when Matthew not only was OK moving into a class of all older students, but he welcomed the challenge, and is now a top stu-

was seeing Vatican City and connecting to that part of their heritage. While in Italy, the group had a chance encounter with Italian President Sergio Mattarella. They also traveled to the Carrara Mountains, where marble has been mined for over 2000 years and where the marble was taken for Michelangelo’s “David.” “I liked seeing another part of the world and appreciate the opportunities we have here at Winton Woods,” Sanchez said.

dent in that class.” Bernardo is also involved in the academic quiz team, the World Quest Team, marching and concert bands, and was part of the stage crew for the fall play. Outside of school, he’s a member of the Northern Hills Bassoon Ensemble. He is also a former Carson Scholar and has entered the competition again this year. The organization was founded in 1994 by world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson and his wife, Candy, and seeks to combat the American education crisis by discover-

ing promise and rewarding excellence in our nation’s youth. “I look forward to having Matthew with us for the next four years as he leads his peers into the next chapter of their lives,” Tash said. » Students from Winton Woods High School recently enjoyed sunsets, sightseeing, and gondola rides while traveling through Italy as part of a school-sponsored trip in November. Josh Amstutz, coordinator for the Academy of Global Studies at the high school, 13 students and seven chaper-

ones traveled from Nov. 2Nov. 9, seeing Florence, Rome, Venice, Vatican City and the Italian Riviera. The group went shopping, took new forms of transportation like highspeed trains, ate lots of pizza and tried new foods like gnocchi and tiramisu. They learned that it’s rude to ask for changes to your meal at a restaurant, and that dinner can last for three hours. To their disappointment, they discovered that photos aren’t allowed to be taken in the Sistine Chapel. A visit to the Lorenzo de’Medici University and Academic Programs International introduced the group to the logistics of studying abroad at the university and to experiencing Italian culture and housing. “The kids sincerely enjoyed the experience and wanted to share what great opportunities our school offers them,” Amstutz said. Seniors Karen Sanchez and Andie Lariccia, who are both Catholic, said a highlight of the trip

» The Winton Woods Middle School Choir Department will present “Destination Rock ‘n’ Roll,” a musical revue arranged by Mark Brymer, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, and Friday, Jan. 20, in the school auditorium. The show covers the history of rock and roll by visiting destinations throughout the United States, including the cities where the first recording companies and studios were located. The story is told through 15 dialogues that are interspersed between songs and sections. Each dialogue describes the circumstances surrounding a major development in the history of the art form. “Our three choirs – tenor bass choir, seventhgrade treble choir and eighth-grade treble choir – will perform separately and as a group, along with featured soloists and special dancers,” Winton Woods Middle School choir director Amanda Westwood said. “You’ll see characters like Elvis, the Jackson Five, the Beatles and the Supremes performing all the classics.” Tickets will be available at the door for $5, with discounts for students and seniors.

Bone broth, purple food trending for new year Broccoli cheddar soup like Panera It was a request I had to fill. “Do you have a recipe for cheddar broccoli soup like Panera?” I looked up a bunch of recipes and found a few that sounded promising. I tried out a couple and adapted only slightly to suit my taste. I used my chicken bone broth. Find a step-by-step photo primer on my abouteating.com site for both the bone broth and this recipe. 2 tablespoons butter 3/4 to 1 cup finely diced onion (not sweet or red) 4 tablespoons melted butter 4 tablespoons flour Dijon mustard - to taste, start with a little and go from there 2 cups half & half 2 cups low sodium, fat free, chicken broth Heaping 3 cups broccoli, chopped - I used frozen, thawed 1 nice carrot, cut into matchsticks, a heaping cup Nutmeg to taste - I grated a whole nutmeg and used a generous 1/4 teaspoon 8 oz. extra sharp or sharp grated cheddar plus extra for garnish Salt and pepper to taste THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

EMBRACING ALL NEIGHBORS People who give their time and talent for neighbors with no expectation of reward deserve to be recognized (“Neighbors Who Care” Dec. 28). Neighborliness makes the community a better place for all of us. Our inspiring Tri-County neighbors are responding to the needs of others by raising money for good causes, volunteering at schools, donating blood, making prayer shawls for hospital patients, housing people displaced by fire, befriending widowed veterans, and conducting a clothing drive for victims of the Gatlinburg fires. There is, as the parable of the good Samaritan tells us, a broad meaning to the word “neighbor.” There is the nextdoor neighbor, the neighbor down the street, the neighbor in another state and the neighbor in a foreign land. The neighbors who look, talk and worship like us and others who do not. They are all our neighbors. As the parable goes, the Samaritan, a foreigner despised by Jews, does what the priest and Levite would not. In response to the needs of another, he risks the dangers on the “Way of Blood” between Jericho and Jerusalem to help a stranger. Like our Tri-County

neighbors, he was a good neighbor. For nearly 50 years, the U.S. Catholic Church has celebrated Mike National MiBrown gration Week COMMUNITY PRESS as a time to GUEST COLUMNIST reflect on the challenges confronting migrants, including immigrants, refugees, children and victims and survivors of human trafficking. By the end of 2015, nearly 66 million people had been forcibly displaced from their homes by war and persecution, according to the United Nations. Most (41 million) were internally displaced within their homeland, but many (25 million) were refugees or asylum-seekers. More than half of all refugees are children. About 5 million of all refugees worldwide come from Syria, which has been ripped apart by civil war. Over the last five years, the U.S. has admitted 10,000 Syrian war refugees into our population of 320 million people. Canada, with a population of just 35 million, has resettled almost 39,000 Syrian refugees over the last 13 months. In our country, the great

melting-pot, the idea of admitting migrants raises concerns about national security, cultural dilution, competition for jobs, and additional burdens on taxpayers. These issues deserve informed discussion and should not be ignored. Nor should we ignore the positive contributions of many immigrants and success stories like that of Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, whose father, Abdul Fattah Jandali, was a Syrian political refugee. Although bearing false witness against neighbors is condemned in Proverbs, some immigrant groups have been unfairly scapegoated, and some individual immigrants have been threatened and mistreated for the problems they are perceived to cause. During National Migration Week, Jan. 8-14, the U.S. Conference of Bishops is calling on us to move beyond our suspicions of migrants and engage them in a meaningful way so we can see them as neighbors with their own unique stories. Responding to the needs of our migrant neighbors brings its own inherent rewards, but no less important, it helps make this great country even better and stronger for all of us. Mike Brown is a resident of Wyoming.

Jan. 4 question What should be the priorities for President-elect Trump during his first 100 days?

“I believe he will be pretty much unable to set priorities until overcoming the obstacles being thrown in his path as quickly as the outgoing administration can. The efforts to deligitimize everything in his opening decisions will be heralded by the ‘no longer necessary’ press, media blogs and testing by the other world powers. “To start with a $20 trillion debt, repairing damage of the last-minute spitefulness of John Kerry with Israel, and the demand to return to Cold War status with Russia, as proclaimed by Obama, will create a very legitimate possibility of the No. 1 priority to be figuring out how to get out of this job, that he foolishly, but thankfully, sought. So far, his cabinet picks seem to have all been tested in the ‘fires of the unknowns.’ He now must

seek counsel. This job is way to ‘Yuuuge’ to go alone or to believe there are easy solutions. I believe in prayer and know we all need to have real hope.” D.B.

“Trump should get his replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act, which he has claimed will be better, through Congress so more Americans have access to affordable medical insurance. “He should end his bromance with Russian President Putin. As a former top level KGB agent, Putin’s beliefs are what the U.S. fought against and continually denounced during the Cold War portion of the Reagan administration. “Finally, he should cancel his Twitter account or have someone monitor his Tweets so they don’t consistently create controversy, anger or panic among the American people.”

Roger Bacon hoops happy to stay the course Adam Baum

abaum@communitypress.com

ST. BERNARD - There was a time when “stay the course” served a purely nautical purpose. Later, it became used in wars and battles, before politicians popularized the phrase with their constituents. Today, it can be used by anyone in pursuit of a goal in spite of hardship or adversity. Roger Bacon High School’s boys basketball team has a plan — one that works — but they’ll have to stay the course to reach their destination.

“Well, we’re winning,” said coach Brian Neal. “I don’t know if we’re playing well, which, to me, is actually even more gratifying that we’re not playing nearly the way we’re capable of, especially on the offensive end, and we’re still winning games.” The Spartans know better than to panic. “We’ll be fine eventually,” said Neal. “We’ve won eight of nine and out of those eight wins, six of them we’ve shot less than 40 percent and still won. “I always say I don’t want to See BACON, Page 2B

No surprise, McAuley makes most of hoops talent and depth Adam Baum abaum@communitypress.com

COLLEGE HILL - It was only a matter of time until McAuley’s basketball team began turning heads and grabbing headlines this season as one of the area’s top teams. That may surprise some outsiders, but the Mohawks aren’t at all surprised by a 10-1 (4-0 Girls Greater Catholic League) start. “It’s not really surprising,” said McAuley coach Dan Wallace. “I knew we had a lot of talent. The big thing was just meshing everything together. This group, they’re just an absolute team. The amount that they’re a true team has helped them grow quickly.” There are a number of places one could begin to deconstruct McAuley’s success. The Mohawks are close. They have leadership, experience and youth. They have a program top-to-bottom that competes at a high level, and maybe most of all, they play defense. “The biggest thing with this group is defensively,” said Wallace. “We’re only giving up 31 points a game. We were giving up 29 a week ago. When you’ve got a team at the varsity level only giving up 29-30 a game, that’s hard to do. “I think we’ve got really good leadership. My experienced kids, especially my seniors, are really doing great as far as leading this basketball team and giving confidence to the younger kids.” The Mohawks also have a wild blend of youth and experience. “Obviously, we’ve got a freshman starting and then we’ve got a sophomore, junior and seniors starting,” Wallace said. “My first sub every day could be either a sophomore in Kieran Casey, could be a junior in Annie Klare, could be a

ALEX VEHR FOR THE ENQUIRER

Jarell White rushes against Massillon Perry in the Division II state title game.

La Salle’s White will play for UC 4-star football recruit eager to join Fickell Adam Baum abaum@enquirer.com

MONFORT HEIGHTS The new era of the University of Cincinnati football program received its first local commitment Tuesday when La Salle senior standout Jarell White announced he will play for the Bearcats. White, a Rivals.com fourstar recruit and starter on all three of the Lancers’ recent state championship teams, had his decision narrowed down to Cincinnati and Purdue – two schools in the midst of assembling new coaching staffs. The Bearcats announced new head coach Luke Fickell on Dec. 10 and it wasn’t long after when White began to take UC seriously. “It changed a lot,” said White of his decision after UC hired Fickell. “I never considered staying home at all, but when I thought about it ... long nights and over this whole winter time, (Fickell) reaching out and coach (Marcus) Freeman reaching out, it felt comfortable with me. “Both coach Fickell and coach Freeman reached out to me once they got into the office and I felt comfortable with both of them just knowing they were great coaches. I just knew they were gonna be the right people for me for the next four years. “At first I thought it was a joke because UC never recruited me hard, I just got the offer and that was it.” White said being able to further his education in his hometown and being able to play in front of his family were factors, but the interest shown by Fickell and Freeman, a former Huber Heights Wayne and Ohio State standout linebacker who was previously the co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach

at Purdue, was significant. “It’s been amazing,” said White. “(Fickell’s) a good guy and I know that he knows what he’s doing when it comes to football and becoming a man ... that’s one of the things we talked about a lot.” White, listed at 5-foot-10, 200 pounds, has been Greater Catholic League-South first team in each of the last three seasons at three different positions (running back, linebacker and defensive back). As a senior, White played both ways, recording 45 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception return touchdown as a linebacker. He also led the Lancers in rushing with 413 yards and six touchdowns in the regular season. During his three seasons starting at La Salle, the Lancers went a combined 40-5 with a share of the GCL South title in 2014, and the outright title – the first in school history – this past season. White said early indications are that he’ll be helping the Bearcats on defense. “It will be looking like nickel back and safety and special teams right now – that’s perfect for me.” La Salle coach Jim Hilvert said, “Jarell’s a very versatile football player who’s a winner, comes from a winning program, three state championships. Other people and other kids in the city can gravitate to that and say ‘I had a great career in high school ... why not look at UC?’ Set a legacy at UC and get a great academic career and play football in front of all your friends and family. And I think people in Cincinnati, they’ll be vested to be able to see a guy like that come to Cincinnati and do a lot of great things.” White added that “starting tonight” he’ll begin helping the Bearcats recruit some talent across the state of Ohio to join him at UC. “We’re definitely about to get this thing going on and for the next couple years you’re gonna see us in some bowl games for sure,” he said.

20,” said Wallace. “And when you’re a varsity team sitting there watching your teammates that you practice with go out and hammer somebody, it just gets you excited to play. “I mean, we’re coming out the gate with so much energy and I think a lot of that is contributed to them watching our JV kids. When we get together in practice, my JV kids are competing with a team that’s easily … I think we’re one of the top-10 teams in the state right now, and my JV comes out and battles us and puts pressure on us. The thickness of the entire program helps push us.” The Mohawks also have one of the most talented starting lineups in the city with seniors Alexah Chrisman and Caroline Taphorn, junior Hallie Heidemann, sophomore Sydney Benning and freshman Lexi Fleming. “Her biggest thing for me is her motor,” said Wallace of Chrisman, a 6-foot-1 post player signed with Rice University who’s averaging 12.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game. “She’s getting rebounds out of position she didn’t use to get. She’s in help (defense) constantly … if somebody beats a guard off the dribble our next kid is shelling body and stopping that dribble and we’re rotating. It’s the team defensive end and she’s kind of the leader of that because of her communication and her effort level.” Wallace went on about his starters: “Hallie Heidemann is a shooter and everybody knows that. People don’t realize Hallie is my second-best rebounder and she’s tiny, but the girl times it and she’s a very deceptive athlete. You know she’s a tremendous golfer, her hand-eye coordination, but she’s got an all-around game. And she’s so tough. “Caroline is, I think, the most underrated guard in the city. She’s guarding post play-

play my best basketball in December and we didn’t really do that but we still won some games, so I’ll take that.” Roger Bacon has essentially flipped the script from last season, getting it done on the defensive end, while still figuring things out offensively. “We’re light years ahead defensively of where we probably were last year at this time,” Neal said. “Last year we just tried to outscore teams. We were probably ahead offensively last year than where we are now and this year we’re ahead defensively.” It’s a defense that begins in the backcourt with senior Craig McGee and junior Brandon Bibbs. “Defensively … the fifth starter is usually Bibbs and with Craig and Brandon guarding the other two guards on the other team, that’s probably the biggest reason we are where we are defensively,” said Neal. “You mix that in with what Craig does in terms of assists and steals. When he’s on the floor there’s an extension of me out there. He

ers … she can guard (positions) 1-4 on the floor. She guarded Maddie Stuhlreyer from Ursuline the entire game; she just turned around and guarded Julia Hoefling like the entire game. She stopping post and turning right around running the point. I think she’s leading the GGCL in assists (3.5) and she’s still putting up eight points. She’s got a complete game and her basketball IQ is ridiculous. “Lexi Fleming (daughter of La Salle coach Dan Fleming) and Sydney Benning — these two little girls are tiny, ferocious defenders. They turn people, take charges and their foot speed is incredible. They rebound the basketball being small and they’re willing to bang with a post player. The toughness, the foot speed and the defensive intensity those two play with and they’re only a freshman and sophomore.” In many ways, McAuley is a perfect storm on the court, driven by a humble confidence

and lofty expectations. “We’ve been talking about this all year,” said Wallace. “I told them they were gonna be pretty good in November and December. They’re gonna be solid in January and incredible in March if we keep building. “The expectations of this group are probably higher than any expectations of anyone looking at them from the outside. They want to be the best basketball team in the city of Cincinnati and they want to be competing for a state championship. These aren’t small goals, this group has big picture ideas but they’ve been approaching it and continue to approach it game by game. “We just beat MND and I think there were some people surprised by that. No one in our locker room was surprised by that. Mount Notre Dame’s ranked in the state and we haven’t even gotten a look at it. Our group has a very good confidence, but also a humble understanding of how hard it is.”

knows what we want; he’s been a varsity player for four years.” McGee averages 10.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 3.2 steals per game. The Spartans also have three long, athletic pieces in their starting five with seniors James Johnson and Justin Johnson – no relation – and sophomore Alec Pfriem. James, a 6-foot-6 forward, averages 13.2 points and 5.7 rebounds a game. Justin, a 6-foot-4 forward, posts 11.0 points and 3.3 boards a night; while Pfriem, at 6-foot-4, averages 12.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists. “James has just now started to shoot the ball,” said Neal. “When we went to South Carolina, he had a nice trip in terms of shooting the ball in the way he’s capable of shooting the ball. And he does all the other things like defending the other team’s best post player. He’s our leading rebounder. “Justin has been hurt; he’s been banged up pretty good and he’s not been as effective as he’s capable of because he’s hobbling around out there a little bit. “Alec, in that St. X game, he was the reason we probably won. At times, he shows the inconsistency of a sophomore but

he is and will be even better down the road.” Alec’s older brother, Nick, is usually the Spartans’ sixth man and Neal said he’s been a really important part this season as well. Even with the slow start, Roger Bacon is the No. 2 team in The Enquirer Division III coaches’ poll behind Summit Country Day. Neal said his guys remain focused on improving. “Our guys have a bigger picture in mind,” he said. “They’re not focused on 8-1. I think our message to them is quite simple and I’m not original in this thought – we’ve gotta get better today. Our goal on Friday night is to play the best game we’ve played all year, and on Saturday we’re gonna try to top it … let’s play better than we played last night. “For us, it’s about the growth of each guy and subsequently our team through the course of the season so that come March we are playing our best basketball. Not that we do things revolutionary or any different, (but) we’re okay struggling at the beginning of the year because we know our process works and we know by the end of the year if we stick to our plan we’ll be OK.”
