OTTAWA — First it was a series of mini bursts. Then there were a couple of bigger ones.

Those were the scoring streaks for Ottawa-Glandorf as they hosted Columbus Africentric in non-league action Friday night. By the time the Nubians were able to react the Titans had built a sizable lead on their way to a 94-64 win over Africentric at the Robert J. Hermiller Gymnasium to start the 2020 portion of their schedule.

The win moves O-G to 9-0 on the season, while the Nubians slipped to 4-4.

Columbus Africentric never led in the contest that was tied twice early, the last time at 4-4 on a Elijahjuan Burke basket. Two free throws by Ethan Alt and a Parker Schomaeker three-pointer gave the Titans a 9-6 lead that they slowly improved on. Africentric was down 11-8 before baskets by Owen Nichols and Alt made the scre 15-8. The Titans ended the first quarter on a 5-4 run as Hayden Dean knocked down a three and Alt scored around two baskets by Calijha'won Davis.

Burke scored to start the second quarter for the Nubians before the Titans went on a 15-0 run to take a 35-14 lead. Brennan Blevins heated up in the run as he knocked down three straight three-pointers after opening O-G's second quarter scoring with a drive to the basket. Ben Westrick added a pair of baskets during the run.

Dalian Swain ended the Nubians dry spell with a basket at the 5:15 mark of the quarter, but Africentric couldn't get into an offensive flow against the Titans defensive pressure as they didn't score again until there was just 49.5 seconds left in the half. Meanwhile the Titans went on a 7-0 run as they built a 42-16 lead before settling for a 42-19 halftime lead. Columbus Africentric was held to seven points in the second quarter by O-G.

The Titans opened the third quarter with a 7-0 run as Westrick had a pair of baskets and Blevins knocked down another three for a 49-19 lead. The biggest lead for the Titans in the third quarter was 32 points at 58-26 after a Westrick basket.

Blevins paced the Titans with a game high 24 points as he hit seven three-pointers in the game. Westrick ended with a double-double as he scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Nichols finished with 13 points as all but one O-G player that played scored at least two points.

The Titans hit 56 percent of their field goal attempts in the game as they were 36-of-64 overall, including a 13-of-25 effort from three-point range.
