The Raiders were led by junior Dakota Cochran and freshman Danny Young Jr., who combined for 36 of the Raiders’ 47 points. Euclid was led by senior Reggie Priah with 14 points and junior point guard Garvin Clarke with 12 points. Clarke scored the go-ahead layup with 40 seconds left in the game to give Euclid the lead after Young hit a game-tying three for Shaker. With the loss, the Raiders finish with a 15-10 record and finish 2nd in the district. The team will lose only three seniors for next season.
