The Barberton community is no stranger to great basketball and excellent coaching, and that tradition continues as current boys' coach Ken Rector picked up his 300th career win on the hardwood.

Rector spoke with WAKR's Ray Horner Monday morning about the experience and carrying on the tradition of success in the Magic City.

"I've been very fortunate to have the coaches I've had along the way," Rector said. "When you have that type of dedication, consistency, and commitment, it really does help the program."

Rector is now #2 on the all-time wins list at Barberton, behind legendary coach Jack Greynolds, whom he played for.

We open up again this season with future revamped Suburban League opponent Kent Roosevelt on Friday 12/5/14 and then follow up with a Greynolds Classic matchup with neighbor rival Norton on Saturday 12/13.

We also will be playing in a 2 game tournament in South Charleston, WV on 12/26 &27. The director of the South Charleston Classic grew up a few miles from Coach Greynolds and is really excited to have the Magics travel and play in his tournament. There will be more information made available shortly if you would like to travel over the holidays and cheer the Magics on! To see theentire schedule, click on the schedule link in the Athletics section @ www.barbertonschools.org Rob Walker, Dan Donnelly, and Rick Cardinal return as our assistant coaches to push and motivate our athletes on the court, in the classroom, and outside BHS to be the leaders and young men that they are capable of being.

THE 2014-2015 SEASON

The Magic’s enter the 2014-2015 season excited, determined, and certainly a little more experienced than we were at this time last year. After graduating only three seniors from last year’s squad, our returning players feel like they have something to prove and are excited about the 2015 season. Senior lettermen Kyle Haywood & Skylar Shifferly return to lead the team as well as Jr.’s Austin Rector & Jeff Woolridge who were thrown into the fire last year as sophomores. Jr. Buzz Walker also returns looking to pick up where he left off after breaking his wrist last season. Unfortunately, Jr. Brandon Taylor-Mitchell will be sidelined for an unknown length of time after surgery to repair a torn ACL this summer. Sr. Cam Dancy, Jr.’s Brandyn Miller and Terrell Mims and Soph. Kobie Booker among others are expected to contribute and improve as the Magics enter their last season as an independent before re-joining the Suburban League next year.

2014 SENIORS & OTHER ALUMNI​

2012 graduates Clay Walker and Eric Hummel will be playing for Defiance and Wittenberg again this year. 2011 graduate Todd Sabol is completing his final year of soccer @ Marietta and Brandon James is finishing his 4th and final season starting @ safety for the College of Wooster football team. Both have had outstanding careers athletically and academically! Another 2011 grad, Josh North, will be finishing his career pitching for Youngstown State this spring. 2009 grad Garrick Sims began his professional basketball career in Spain playing for GBD Badajoz of the EBA. Their season has just started and Garrick is excited and having a great time living and playing in Spain. We are fortunate that all of these fine student athletes are representing Barberton in such a great manner. All (except Garrick!) are playing no more than a couple of hours away and their schedules are easily found on their college’s website. If you can, find a day to see them play…they would love it!

MAGIC MADNESS:​FRIDAY NIGHT ​​NOVEMBER 14

Don’t forget Magic Madness, on Nov. 14th @ 5:30. We will introduce our players and give you an up close look @ the 2015 edition of the Magics as we prepare for the season. This will be a great night so come and enjoy this fun and entertaining look @ the Magics!
