Liking Country Day's chances

If there were ever a chance that a high school state basketball semifinal was going to be sold out (like it was in 2004 when Drew Neitzel's Wyoming Park team played Malik Hairston, Joe Crawford and Detroit Renaissance), this Friday could be it.
That's because for the third straight season, Birmingham Detroit Country Day and Lansing Sexton will meet at the state's final four in a game that'll feature some of the best talent in the state.
Country Day won the first meeting two years ago in the Class B state final, while Sexton upset Country Day in last year's semifinals.
While Sexton enters as a favorite, Kosmo can't help but think Country Day is in a good position.
For one, Country Day should have less pressure on it as the underdog. Two, Country Day will have plenty of motivation after last year's loss. Three, the Yellowjackets are a talented team playing their best basketball of the year.
Country Day is scoring points at will and is deep, so despite the fact Sexton has three all-state players on its squad, don't be surprised if Country Day not only gives Sexton a run for its money on Friday, but actually wins.
