Beacon Journal staff report

GlenOak, coming off a five-win season a year ago and with one senior, held off a late Buchtel surge to win the season opener for both schools Saturday.

Buchtel (0-1) was up by three points early in the fourth quarter.

GlenOak came back to take a five-point lead before Buchtel's Marquel Jones' hit a 3-pointer with 38 seconds left to close the game to two points.

''The last thing we tried to do was hang onto the basketball, spread the court and hang on for the win,'' said GlenOak coach Gary King.

Buchtel was forced to foul, and put Nancy Osborne on the line. The sophomore guard hit two free throws to finish the fourth quarter with seven of her game-high 15 points. Jalisa Johnson added 13 points for GlenOak (1-0). Charnae Coleman led the visiting Griffins with 14 points, while Jones had 10.
