Lots of anticipation in Lake Orion

Kosmo still remembers the good old days of Lake Orion basketball, when students and fans would pack the gym excited to see what Drew Maynard would do next. OK, so it wasn't that long ago — try 2-4 years ago — but seemed inevitable that as soon as Maynard graduated, the boys basketball excitement at Lake Orion would be gone. It certainly was the case last year when the Dragons won just three games, but the anticipation over another boys game at Lake Orion will be in full force on Tuesday.
In a first-place battle in the OAA White, red-hot Lake Orion will host league-leading Birmingham Seaholm in what should be a raucous atmosphere at Lake Orion.
The Dragons played the Maples tough at Seaholm earlier in the year and have only gotten better since, so this should be the game of the night.
Richaud Pack and Shawn Conway of Seaholm will have to do everything they can to silence what should be a noisy student section in Dragon country.
— The first night of the KLAA girls tournament starts on Tuesday, with the best matchups being Brighton at Lakeland and Grand Blanc at Waterford Kettering. Another game to watch could be at Waterford Mott, where former Milford coach Don Palmer will bring his Hartland team into Mott's gym. This game could be closer than people think.
