Time to take Troy boys, Mercy girls seriously

Tuesday was the first big night from the holiday break for boys and girls basketball teams around the state, and there were several performances that caught Kosmo's eyes. But the two that stood out the most were by the Troy boys team and the Farmington Hills Mercy squad, both of which recorded statement road victories.
Troy went to previously unbeaten Ferndale and recorded a 60-53 win. The biggest reason for Troy's win was the same reason why the Colts have gotten off to a good start: The all-state play of sophomore James Young.
There might not be a hotter player in the county right now than Young, who poured in 32 points to go along with 11 rebounds and four steals for the Colts.
If Young keeps working and improving, he could wind up being the best player longtime head coach Gary Fralick has ever had at Troy before he graduates.
It's also time to take notice of Farmington Hills Mercy, which notched a huge feather in its cap by recording a road win at Catholic League nemesis Birmingham Marian.
Mercy didn't receive any votes in the first Class A girls state poll this week, but that should change next week given the Marlins won at Marian and are off to a 6-1 start.
