The end is in sight! By Sunday morning, all the high school basketball for the season will be over in the state of Michigan. The trophies will have been handed out. Some players will look toward next season while other will have only memories of their career. It’s the end, ladies and gents. Let’s take a look at the action from last week.
High Score of the Week
Cedarville 81 Powers North Central 79 (160 points)
This was CLOSE! Powers North Central freshman Jason Whitens nailed a shot as time expired and was fouled, giving him a chance to win the game. Unfortunately, the foul was a floor foul and he missed the front end of a one and one, ending the game. Dan Stenback and Joey Duncan scored 34 points each for Cedarville. Travis Vincent scored 23, Whitens chipped in 20, and Rob Granquist scored 18.
Low Score of the Week
Flint Beecher 46 Montrose 36 (82 points)
Montrose came out swinging. During the first quarter, they held a 10 point lead. Beecher came storming back though, not ready to go down without an intense fight. Leading scorer was Antonio McMillion with 19 points for Montrose. On the Beecher side, Amariontez Ivory scored 14. Malik Ellison, a freshman, scored 12 and was the main ball handler down the stretch. Tommy Johnson scored six points and grabbed eight rebounds.
Cottrell’s BLOWOUT of the Week

On the AuGres side, Ryan Caufield scored 20 to lead his team.
