Phil Brown Basketball Classic

Phil Brown Basketball Tournament concludes successful 28th year

The Rotary Club of Westerville concluded another highly successful Phil Brown Holiday Basketball Classic Friday, Dec. 27, 2019.

Played in Otterbein University’s Rike Center, participating Westerville high school teams won five of their six games against local competition in this year’s tournament.

Both boys and girls squads from all three Westerville schools play in the tourney. Final scores from the 2019 Classic were, in order of games played:

  • Westerville North girls 67, Worthington Christian 42
  • Worthington Christian boys 61, Westerville North boys 51
  • Westerville Central girls 49, Mount Vernon 27
  • Westerville Central boys 51, Tri-Valley 38
  • Westerville South girls 62, Granville 41
  • Westerville South boys 63, Logan 46

The tournament originally was organized in 1991 by Westerville South boys Coach Ed Calo and former Westerville North boys Coach Dave Hoover, as the Westerville Holiday Basketball Classic. It has been staged by the Westerville Rotary since 1998, and was renamed the Phil Brown Holiday Basketball Classic in honor of the late Brown, who served as president of the club in 1995-96.

The Rotary Club of Westerville extends its congratulations to all the players and fans who attended, and thanks to Otterbein University for providing the wonderful venue of the Rike Center.

Westerville Rotarians, remember: We will gather for our lunch meeting tomorrow (Sept. 12), at the Otterbein Campus Center, 100 W. Home St., 43081.
Our own Club member and Otterbein President John Comerford has made special arrangements for us to have this meeting.
Otterbein is in session so this will be a fun event with a great chance to mingle with some of the students. We’ll have a normal program, featuring speaker Lisa Bushman, owner of The Center for Counseling, Growth & Discovery.
ORDERING: When you enter the Campus Center, go up the stairs and get in line with the students. Order your lunch as you go through and pay the cashier for your meal. There is no meeting charge, only what you order for your lunch. After grabbing your lunch, proceed to Room One, which is the room on the west end of the building—the same room where we have breakfast the morning of the Fish Fry.
PARKING: at the Campus Center is generally not available. Please plan to park in the State Street lot directly across from Church the Messiah U.M., 51 N. State, and walk the couple of blocks down Home Street to the Campus Center. Consider buddying up with another Rotarian or two for travel to this unique off-site meeting!
If you need assistance in getting to the center, please email Wendell at wencaptain@msn.com and we can provide a ride if necessary.
