Another week has come and gone, and now it’s time for the Spartan Nation high school basketball report! The teams are starting to hit stride and have played a lot of games in January. The District action begins on March 3rd. That means there is a month and a week or so to hit up the local gym and catch a boys or girls game. Once Districts begin, most teams do not get to play on their home court. Let’s take a look at the action from the past week.
Century Club Part 2
Kalamazoo Central 101 Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills 69
It was the highest scoring game of the season for Kzoo Central. Leading the way for the Maroon Giants was Hunter Hale with 21 points. Orlando Little scored 17 and Devon Daniels scored 12. On the losing side, Myles Miller tied Hunter Hale with 21 points. Anthony Macintosh scored 13. This 9-1 start is the best start for Kalamazoo Central since 2010/11.
Blowout of the Week
Flint Hamady 79 Webberville 4 (75 points)
Coach Kenyada Dent wanted his team to play good man to man defense. Check. All coaches want their players to get rebounds and make their shots. Check. It was an old fashion whipping of Webberville. Jamil Demps scored 13 to lead Hamady. He also had five steals and five assists. Demar Ford, Jalen Fykes, Roderick Green, Charlie Harris, and Alex Williams all scored eight points. Ford, Fykes, and Green each came away with six rebounds while Harris had five steals. In the losing effort, Ty Adiar scored three points while Tim Hergenreder scored one.
