Rogers boys fall to Mentor in state championship game, 76-67


COLUMBUS -- The Rogers Rams’ improbable state basketball tournament ride to the Division I championship game was derailed tonight by a nightmarish third quarter in which eighth-ranked Mentor could do no wrong.

Down 37-34 at halftime, the Cardinals (26-4) came out of the break with a fury. They outscored the unranked Rams 29-9 in the period, and went on to a 76-67 victory before a Schottenstein Center crowd of 9,566.

Caleb Potter led Mentor with 24 points, and Jeff Foreman added 19 for the Cardinals, who won their first state championship.

Rogers (21-8) was paced by DeVonte Pratt’s 23 points.
