RHI Pacers Wheelchair Basketball Team Dominates 2011 Raider Shootout February 1st, 2011

The RHI Pacers, with a revamped lineup featuring Brian Bell, Josh Swoverland, and Jeff Townsend, began the second half of their season with a 4-0 record at the 2011 Raider Shootout at Wright State University.  The first game resulted in a decisive 63-30 victory over The Ohio Rolling Hoopstars. They then followed up that win by beating the CAWV Marietta Wheelers from West Virginia by a score of 56-28.

Sunday’s first game ended with the Pacers scoring a season high 74 points in a win over Division 3’s 3rd highest ranked team The Moriane Minutemen: Final score, 74-54.  The RHI Pacers were led in scoring by Brian Bell but also had a very strong contribution by Sarah Clay who netted 20 points on 10-12 shooting.

The final game pitted the Pacers against  the Turnstone Bandits from Fort Wayne, IN.  Both teams were 3-0 in the tournament to that point. By using fast breaks and a relentless full court press, the Pacers won a stunning 76-45 victory.

Currently the RHI Pacers are ranked 18th in the nation but should move up when the next rankings are announced.  Next up for the team is the Bluegrass Invitational at the University of Kentucky’s Seaton Center in Lexington, KY on February 4th – 6th.  Congratulations Pacers!
