CUYAHOGA FALLS — Woodridge boys basketball hasn’t let a relative lack of size bother it the past two seasons.

The Bulldogs were facing another taller squad when they played backyard rival Walsh Jesuit on Friday in the opening game of the Cuyahoga Falls Holiday Basketball Classic.

When the opposition is big and shoots the lights out, there’s not much a team can do.

Walsh (3-4) was too strong down low and on fire from downtown in a 69-58 win over Woodridge (6-2) at the Tom Jones Court.

First-year Walsh coach Kevin Byrne said his team did a great job finding the open man, and the Warriors made nine 3-pointers in the game.

“When we move the ball around and when we’re making the right decisions, we can shoot the ball pretty well,” Byrne said. “We were able to get some open looks and we put them down.”

Woodridge coach Ric Blevins said the effort was there from his team.

“They shot the ball very well tonight,” Blevins said. “They were more physical than we were. There’s a difference between Division I and Division II in terms of physicality. I’m not unhappy with our guys. This is one of the games we need to play. I know we got better tonight.”

Walsh found its shooting touch early and was able to take a 15-10 lead after one quarter, thanks to some layups.

Walsh blew the game open with 9-0 run in the second quarter, thanks to its bench bunch. Guard Charles Curenton made two consecutive 3-pointers, followed by another 3-pointer from senior guard Colin Reardon to give the Warriors a 26-13 lead.

“Our bench really stepped up tonight,” Byrne said.

“We were making them shoot 3s in transition,” Blevins said. “If some of those are misses, they’re basically turnovers. They did a good job hitting their shots.”

The Bulldogs found some 3-pointers of their own to trim the lead to 32-25 at halftime.

Woodridge got a huge night from its senior backcourt. DJ Snyder finished with a game-high 26 points, and Michael Massey added 19 points. The problem was no other Bulldog had more than five points.

Walsh’s offense was more varied and timely. Every time it appeared as if the Bulldogs were poised to get back in the game, Walsh seemed to made a 3-pointer.
