Lakers sailing along smoothly

It's almost February, and just like Kosmo predicted at the beginning of the season, West Bloomfield is on top of the OAA Red boys basketball standings.
OK, not exactly.
No, Kosmo isn't saying "not exactly" to the fact West Bloomfield is in first place in the OAA Red.
The Lakers indeed are with a 4-0 record.
Rather, Kosmo admits he didn't think West Bloomfield would be anywhere near the top of the league standings by this point of the season, let alone in first place.
Last week, the Lakers proved that they are a team to be reckoned with by upsetting state-ranked Southfield at home.
Kosmo figured the Lakers couldn't pull off two upsets in a row, but that's exactly what they did on Friday, recording a 72-63 overtime win at Pontiac.
That certainly got Kosmo's attention, and likely everyone else's around the county.
Kudos need to go out to West Bloomfield coach Jeremy Denha and senior guard Spencer Parker, who is averaging 27 points a game so far this season.
We'll see if the Lakers can keep up their pace from here on out. But without question, they've been the most pleasant surprise in the county thus far.
— It's been a strange season for the Southfield-Lathrup girls basketball team. The Chargers haven't lost in OAA Red play, but have lost three games outside of the league, including one to a much smaller Grosse Pointe Woods University Liggett school in the Martin Luther King Classic at Pontiac. Oh well. First place in the league is still first place in the league, so the Chargers still have a lot to feel good about.
