Top-Ranked Moeller Wins Four In Seven Days


The Crusaders’ inside duo of Grant Benzinger and Nate Fowler combined to score 31 points and grab 18 rebounds to help Moeller defeat Toledo St. John’s Jesuit Sunday evening at Moeller – the team’s fourth win in seven days.  Benzinger led Moeller (13-1), No. 1 in The Enquirer’s Division I coaches’ poll all season, with 17 points and five rebounds, while Fowler added 14 points and 13 rebounds.

Moeller is riding a seven-game winning streak, and the Crusaders’ victory over St. John’s Jesuit was the fourth win in a week – having beaten Winton Woods last Monday, Centerville Tuesday, and then La Salle on Friday in a meeting of the city’s top-ranked teams.  Moeller will put its 12-game GCL South winning streak on the line this Friday, when the Crusaders host St. Xavier at 7:30 p.m.
