Moeller Advances To D-1 Championship

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Alex Barlow, averaging all of 6.5 points a

game, scored seven in the last 1:11 of overtime to spur

ninth-ranked Cincinnati Moeller past No. 5 Mentor 66-59 Friday

night in a Division I state boys semifinal.

Barlow scored 21 points, and Charlie Byers and Josh Morelock had

17 apiece for Moeller (22-4), which will now play for its fourth

state title on Saturday night.

Jason Crowe had 28 points - hitting seven 3-pointers - to lead

Mentor (23-4), making its first trip to the final four. First-team

All-Ohioan Cole Krizancic added 13 points, half his average.

Barlow's two foul shots with 1:11 left gave Moeller a 60-59

lead. After Crowe missed a 3, Byers hit the first of two free

throws and Barlow rebounded the second, scoring while being fouled.

His three-pointer made it 64-59 with 34 seconds left.
