Boys Varsity Basketball · Boys Basketball: Devils Sweep Weekend


Five Richmond players scored in double figures as the host Red Devils led wire-to-wire in a 79-44 non-conference win against Northmont (Ohio) on Saturday at Tiernan Center.

Richmond improved to 8-7 with the win, which saw all 12 players who dressed get some game action.

Junior Andrew Kroft topped the balanced Richmond effort with game highs in points (19), rebounds (16) and steals (seven), narrowly missing a triple double. Tytan Newton, who on Friday made the game-clinching play against Muncie Central, added 17 points and five assists.

The Red Devils never trailed in the contest and extended their lead each quarter.

Sophomore Tylan Harris was the top Richmond scorer off the bench, netting three 3-point field goals on his way to a season-best 13 points. Cleevas Craig and Jordan Stolle each chipped in 11 points for the Red Devils, who ran their winning streak to three games heading into a Wednesday non-conference clash at potential sectional opponent Pendleton Heights.

Koream Jett led Richmond in assists with six, while Stolle topped the Devils with nine deflections.
