Role players step up big for Rochester

Kosmo already knew this was a special season over at Rochester, one the boys basketball program might not enjoy for quite a while.
But Kosmo came to appreciate just how special of a season this has been and could still be for the Falcons on Wednesday.
Rochester played an anticipated district semifinal against Rochester Adams, which was as fired up as everyone figured it would be. Adams had lost to Rochester twice during the regular season, but was playing on its home court and for its coach John Hall, who was wrongly suspended for the state tournament for making minor contact with an official.
If you would've told Kosmo before the game that Rochester leading scorers Paris Pereira and Taylor Perry would combine for four points total, Kosmo would've said it was a great season for Rochester and who does Adams play in Friday's district final.
But as it turns out, Rochester amazingly won even without production from their two stars.
Thanks to 20 points from Arben Camaj and 14 from Mike Klotz, the Falcons survived their rivals in double-overtime. If Rochester goes far, it could turn out that Camaj and Klotz are just as big of heroes as Perry and Pereira for what they did on Wednesday.
- Kosmo is absolutely stunned that Southfield-Lathrup lost to Oak Park in what was easily the upset of the night on Wednesday. Evidently, Lathrup had a huge letdown following Monday's heartstopping win over Detroit Henry Ford. The Chargers must have basked in the press clippings, because there's no way they should've lost to Oak Park, which struggled in the OAA White while Lathrup was second in the OAA Red.
But give credit to Oak Park and it shows anything can truly happen during March Madness.
