For the Knights, are making their first trip to the girls basketball state tournament since 1996. It is their fourth state tournament appearance overall. Hoban won a state title in 1988.
“Were all just really excited because this is all our 1st trip going down to states” said Riley as all the girls were super excited after the game, celebrating at midcourt by screaming and shouting. Riley who had 26 pts and 15 rebounds described her performance as shocking because she did so over Glenoak’s 6’5 center. “I wasn’t really expecting to have 26 pts over someone who is 6’5”
The Knights outscored GlenOak 21-5 in the second quarter on their way to a 59-46 win in a Division I regional final at Medina High School. Hoban will play Newark next Friday at 5 p.m. in a state semifinal.
