Kynard's 25 points lead Rogers Rams in semifinal win

COLUMBUS--The Rogers Rams' Cinderella ride through the 2013 Division I boys state basketball tournament has now gone the distance.

The unranked Rams (21-7) rallied to outscore third-ranked Cincinnati Walnut Hills 21-12 in the fourth quarter and took a 58-51 victory in a D-I state semifinal Friday night at the Schottenstein Center.

Senior guard Tony Kynard led Rogers with 25 points, and senior backcourt mate Clemmye Owens shook off three subpar quarters to tally seven of his 10 points in the game's final 2:34 to lift the Rams to victory.

Rogers will face eighth-ranked Mentor (24-5) in Saturday's 8:30 p.m. state championship game here.
