Braves advance to play in the district finals against perennial power Dunbar.
SPRINGFIELD — Jaelin Williams had one of his worst games of the season in a sectional semifinal win over Greenon last Wednesday, scoring only eight points. Entering a Division II sectional final game against Urbana last night, Williams was determined to avoid a repeat performance.
And avoid that he did.
Williams led the Braves with 21 points as Shawnee beat Urbana 47-32 to earn its first trip to the district finals in three seasons.

The Braves and Hillclimbers meet in a sectional final game for a rematch of a nine-point Shawnee win in regular season.
SPRINGFIELD — It’s usual for coaches of any sport on any level to be displeased in some aspect with a performance after a game. It’s unusual for coaches of any sport on any level to be displeased after a 32-point win.
Shawnee head coach Chris McGuire was just that following a 75-43 win over Greenon in a Division II sectional semifinal at Springfield High School on Wednesday.
“We weren’t very crisp and sharp offensively,” McGuire said. “We missed a lot of easy shots there early on. Then defensively, we weren’t terrible, but we didn’t have our rotating defense as a well as we normally did. We didn’t practice as well the last couple of days as we had been recently too.”

We switched over to semesters last fall at Wright State University, as did the remaining public institutions in the state that still used the quarters system.
And what was true in quarters is true in semesters — you don’t question the professor’s schedule. Over my three-and-a-half years at Wright State, I don’t know if I’ve ever had a midterm exam in the middle of term. Last semester, one class had a midterm exam in week ten — about three weeks after the true middle of the semester.
And in that vein of it’ll-be-midterm-when-I-say-it-is, it’s time for a midseason analysis of area (limited to Clark and Champaign County for most purposes of this column) high school basketball.
Jaelin Williams scores six of 23 total points in a crucial stretch in fourth quarter, hits five foul shots in overtime to lead Shawnee to win.
SPRINGFIELD — Players, coaches, and fans agree that Jaelin Williams is the leader of the Shawnee Braves team.
And when the Braves were trailing 50-43 in the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division game against rival Kenton Ridge at Shawnee with less than three minutes left in regulation, they looked to their leader.
Williams didn’t disappoint.
The 6-5 senior guard scored eleven of his 23 points in the final seven minutes of an overtime game to help lead Shawnee to a 66-61 come-from-behind win over the Cougars (4-5, 1-3 CBC Kenton Trail) last night. The game was a makeup of a game originally scheduled on Dec. 21 that was postponed due to inclement weather.
Jalen Nelson hits a layup at the buzzer to lift the Braves over Troy 55-54 in a nonconference game.
SPRINGFIELD – A layup made at time expired by Springfield Shawnee’s Jalen Nelson made the difference in a nonconference game Saturday night as Troy fell 55-54.
Shawnee was down three points with 16 seconds left but came up big on its last two possessions. Jaelin Williams hit a basket with 14 seconds left to cut Troy’s lead down to one point. The Braves’ fouled Troy’s Dylan Cascaden with ten seconds left, and Cascaden missed the first shot of a 1-and-1 at the free throw line.
