Loveland, Ohio – The Milford Eagles descended on Tiger Court Tuesday, December 12, looking to avenge last year’s series sweep by the Loveland men’s basketball team. The Tigers fought hard, taking a three point lead into the fourth quarter, but ultimately fell to the unbeaten Eagles 57-52.

Loveland Women remain undefeated on a six-game run.

In front of a large Tiger Nation student body on jersey/ESPN night, Coach Reis went deep into his bench in the first half, rotating 11 players to maintain relentless defensive pressure on the Eagles. Milford took a slim 25-22 advantage into the halftime locker room.

Coming out of the break, the Eagle made an obvious adjustment, trying to speed up their transition game to beat the Tigers’ defensive pressure, but behind a 15-9 third quarter run fueled by Jalen Greiser and Matt Toigo, the Tigers took a 37-34 lead into the final stanza.

After three lead changes in the first 3 minutes of the last quarter, the Eagles took the lead for good and held off the scrappy Tigers down the stretch.

Jalen Greiser and Matt Toigo lead the Tigers with 20 and 15 points respectively. Brenton Foust dished out 6 assists and hit his first varsity trey.

The loss evened Loveland’s record at 1-1 (2-2).
