CIRCLEVILLE — Trey Vaughan was 8 of 11 from three-point range and led all scorers with 24 points on Friday to help host and top seeded Ohio Christian rout Boyce College 100-61 in a National Christian College Athletic Association Mid-East Regional men's basketball semifinal game.

"Trey came out really focused, and you could tell in the shoot around he was ready to go," OCU coach Tony Stockman said. "He had a great night shooting the basketball."

The Trailblazers (23-8) play Kentucky Christian at 3 p.m. today for the championship of the six-team region.

OCU shot 75 percent (24 of 32) from the field in the first half, including hitting 7 of 12 three-pointers (58.3 percent) to take a commanding 59-32 lead into halftime.

"I was really pleased with the focus and energy our guys came out with," Stockman said. "When we come out focused like that and dictate the pace of the game, we're a very tough team."

Jimmy Horton Jr. had 17 points and three steals for the Trailblazers, Evan Mills had 15 points and seven rebounds and Wesley Russell added nine points and 11 assists.

Boyce was led by Ethan Ammon with 21 points.
