It's just a simple line painted in a semi-circle on a basketball floor. Yet the 3-point arc seems to draw a lot of attention.

Here are some recent examples of Ohio prep stars making the most of their long-range accuracy:

Arlington's Jordan Freed set a school record by making 10 3-pointers (in 14 attempts) in Saturday's 71-30 win over Riverdale, breaking by one the old record set by David Metzger during the 1991-92 season; Vanlue's John Clymer made his first six 3-point attempts and was 7 for 9 overall, teammate Linden Smith made his first four 3's and the Wildcats made a school-record 14 treys in Saturday's 74-30 win over Ridgemont; Arcadia's Miranda Palmer was a perfect 8 for 8 on 3-pointers and score 30 points in Saturday's 58-39 win over Bloomdale Elmwood; Salineville Southern's Luke Griffith connected on a school-record nine 3-pointers for 33 points in a 64-42 win over Columbiana, breaking the school mark of 8 set by current assistant coach Ethan Blatch; and Lisbon David Anderson freshman Avery Andric tied a school record with seven 3-pointers as he scored 24 points in a 64-58 loss to East Palestine.

RECORDS APLENTY: What a night the Galion girls, and in particular Peyton Beachy, had in a win over Lucas on Saturday.

The Tigers set a record for points in the 88-39 win. They also made 15 3-point shots to set another school mark. Beachy hit 10 of those for yet another record, and her 40 points eclipsed the previous Galion record of 37.

Also, Lucas hit eight 3-point shots, so the teams combined for an amazing 23.

OLD SCHOOL: The Windham Bombers boys routed Rootstown last week, 80-45. The Bombers reached their offensive total without a single made 3-pointer.

NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS: Maybe their minds were elsewhere at their homecoming game because Hanoverton United's boys made just 1 of 21 shots from the field in the first half during a 69-25 loss to Canfield South Range; despite missing No. 2-leading scorer Jeff Thomas, No. 3 Norwalk beat Port Clinton 92-33 in its only game last week; Clyde's Derek Gray finished with 77 points, 26 rebounds, 20 assists in three wins last week (25.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 6.6 assists per game) for the Fliers (11-5); Green Meadows Conference unbeatens Haviland Wayne Trace and Edgerton both lost on the same night, WT having a 12-game winning streak stopped by Defiance Tinora 57-47, while Edgerton had an 11-game win streak ended by Holgate 37-31; just 1-16 entering the game, the Sherwood Fairview girls rallied from a 27-14 halftime deficit to beat Antwerp, 46-43; Collins Western Reserve's girls (18-2) put the wraps on a record fifth straight Firelands Conference championship with a 53-35 win at Ashland Mapleton, giving them 33 straight conference wins; Celina's girls have won 12 straight games - 11 by double figures - heading into this week; and Ottoville's girls won their fourth consecutive Putnam County League title with a 67-45 win over Leipsic, making the seniors 28-0 in PCL games in their careers.

PAYBACK: In December, St. Henry defeated Celina in a holiday tournament semifinal 59-56 on a last-second shot by Kyle Stahl. The teams met again Saturday night , this time Celina getting a jumper in the paint by Ryan Hoyng at the buzzer to give the Bulldogs a 62-61 overtime win over the Redskins at the Celina Fieldhouse. Still, Stahl had a chance to win the game in regulation, but missed on a 3-pointer.

DOUBLE TIMES THREE: McComb's Jerry Brown had a triple-double on Friday, scoring 13 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and handing out 11 assists in the Panthers 62-46 win over Van Buren.

PRODUCTION LINES: Findlay's Austin Gutting went for 20 points and 10 rebounds in a loss to Toledo Whitmer and followed up the next night with a 30-point, 14-rebound game in Saturday's win over Cleveland East Tech; Vanlue's Zach Garber, a 6-foot-10 center headed to the University of Toledo, had 19 points and 21 rebounds (to go along with 6 steals, 6 blocks and 5 assists) in a 73-40 win over Ridgemont; Pam Pierce totaled 33 points, 17 rebounds and four assists in leading Lisbon David Anderson past East Palestine, 68-52; and Lexington's Mason Willeke scored 33 points as the Minutemen beat Millersburg West Holmes 64-57 in overtime, with the Minutemen outscoring West Holmes 35-13 in the fourth quarter and extra time.

REDSTREAKING: The Piketon Redstreaks, who returned all five starters from last year's team that lost to eventual state runner-up Portsmouth in the district tournament, are rolling again. They have the inside track to defending their Scioto Valley Conference title with an 11-1 record. The Redstreaks are streaking, having won seven in a row.

BIG SHOT: Clyde junior and Indiana University recruit Amanda Cahill buried a deep 3-pointer with 1:17 left to seal a 52-46 win and deny an upset bid from Port Clinton (16-3) as the Fliers (19-0) won a 44th consecutive Sandusky Bay Conference game. Clyde had trailed 40-33 with under 7 minutes left in the game, and the lead changed hands six times in the final 5 minutes of the final quarter.
