The Clyde Lady Fliers secured at least a share of the SBC title in our live broadcast game on Friday night with a 50-27 win over Perkins.

Clyde has three games remaining in conference play and will wrap up the outright SBC crown with one more victory. Edison (8-3) is the only team in the conference that can mathematically catch Clyde in the standings.   Random Thoughts:   • Perkins led the basketball game midway through the second quarter 21-18, but would not score again until the fourth quarter. Clyde used a 26-0 run to take control of the game.   • Clyde is a special basketball team that could make another run at a state title in March. The Fliers only loss of the season was to state-ranked Hathaway Brown (currently 8th in Division II). The Fliers are currently ranked 3rd in DII.   • Not to scare everyone in the SBC, but Clyde should be good for several years to come. On Friday they started a senior (Rachel Smetzler 13.1 ppg), three sophomores and a freshman.   • The Fliers are currently playing without sophomore Breanne Michaels. She was injured in a game last weekend at St. Mary Central Catholic, but coach John Cahill told us Monday night on the Rountable Show he hopes to have her back by tournament time.   • Perkins did not have a player reach double figures on Friday night. Jordan Fraley (15.6 ppg) and Kayla Yost (8.7 ppg) each scored eight points for the Lady Pirates.   • The SBC has been very good this year. The teams combined out of conference record is currently 26 -9. Oak Harbor, which has just one SBC win, is 3-1 in non-conference games this season.   • Friday's broadcast was our first ever girl's varsity contest broadcast on fandy.com.   What's Next?   Join us Saturday for the NOL boys clash between Sandusky and Norwalk. Our live coverage starts at 7:30 p.m. on fandy.com.
