Marysville was intent on keeping Bellefontaine out of the paint Monday. The Chiefs made the Monarchs pay by blistering the nets from long range.

Playing its final home game of the season, Bellefontaine buried 13 three-point baskets en route to a 67-41 rout of the visiting Monarchs in a non-league boys basketball game.
It was a memorable night for the Chiefs, especially the six seniors on the team.
In addition to getting its 17th straight win, Bellefontaine (17-1) wrapped up a perfect home record on senior night.
“Every year one of our goals is to go undefeated at home,” said Bellefontaine head coach Henry Stolly. “I am so happy for our seniors to accomplish that goal. There have not been many teams here over the years that have been able to do that.”
Opponents have tried a variety of tactics to contain Bellefontaine’s offense this winter. The Monarchs (5-14) chose to blanket Bellefontaine standout center Michael Bean-Breaston inside, but the Chiefs were able to find the holes in Marysville’s defense.
