There was a lot of fanfare on Senior night at Uhigh Friday February 28th. The game started with the traditional tip off, but immediately headed the direction of Keita Bates-Diop the Ohio State Recruit. Bates-Diop was one point from breaking the University High School all time points record held by Seth Hubbard. All the early passes went the way of Bates-Diop with a couple missed opportunities, the record was finally broken with a short shot from under the basket. Action was halted while an announcement was made with the game ball ultimately ending up in the hands of his mother.
At half time several recognitions were made. Arion Workman received an athlete of the year award from a local radio station and two others from the Pioneers football team were recognized for play. Bates-Diop wasn't overlooked as a representative from the McDonalds Corporation presented a national award.
The game ended with the Pioneers extending their winning streak.
