As good as it gets for girls hoops

Technically, regular season non-league games that are played in February don't mean anything.
There are no league titles at stake and teams are just gearing up for the state tournament that is just around the corner.
But there's a game on Wednesday that'll be as meaningful as a non-league regular season game in February can be.
The state's No. 1 team in Class B, Birmingham Detroit Country Day, will travel to Inkster to play what's the No. 1 team in Class A.
Both teams are unbeaten.
Neither will meet each other in the state tournament, so this will be a great matchup to possibly see who is the de facto best team in the state. It should be a fantastic battle.
- Following a win over Lakeland on Monday, the Waterford Kettering girls basketball team is still undefeated at 14-0. The Captains probably don't want to here this, but Kosmo hopes for their sake they don't finish 20-0 in the regular season. It's awfully hard for a team to make a successful run in the postseason having not lost, given such a team rarely learns to respond to the adversity that usually occurs during the one-and-done format of the state tournament. The only exception is if a team is an absolute powerhouse loaded with Division I college players, which Kettering is not.
The Captains are a fantastic team that plays well together, but it might help them in the long run if a team like Canton beats them in the KLAA tournament.
