Lathrup sends a message
It's not easy to replace talented players who are tall, and the Chargers had to move on without two of them after Amber McCann and Ginnisica Lawler graduated.
But Michele Jackson's team showed that it is still going to be a team to be reckoned with, earning a 49-47 win at a solid Troy team.
The OAA Red was thought to be a wide-open race, and it still is. But if people didn't have Lathrup as a contender for a league title already, it does now.
- Tuesday's basketball action saw a pair of teams win thanks to improbable half-court shots. In a 52-48 Rochester Adams win at Oxford, Lauren Boyle of Adams nailed a half-court shot at the buzzer to send the game into overtime. The Highlanders took advantage of the momentum and won from there. At Hamtramck in a boys game between host Hamtrack and Hazel Park, the visiting Vikings prevailed, 40-38, after Damon Hannon hit a half-court shot at the buzzer. This is the time of the year for miracles, and two happened on the basketball court on Tuesday.
- It was another dominant performance from Clawson forward/center Alli Costine on Tuesday. In a 40-38 overtime win at Center Line, Costine had 28 points and 20 rebounds for the Trojans. Talk about the definition of a force on the interior.
