Will Pontiac lose a district?
All season Kosmo has been pointing to March 7 at Troy Athens, where Troy and Pontiac will meet in a huge Class A district semifinal. The winner has a good chance of making a deep run in the state tournament.
Usually, district play is all Pontiac's to lose since the Phoenix seem to rise up come playoff time (cool pun, isn't it?).
However, Pontiac was given a big run for its money last year by Troy, which will have the best player on the court in James Young.
If there ever were a time where Pontiac would not win a district, this would be it with the way Young and the Colts have been playing.
Kosmo can't wait to see what happens.
- It sounded like quite a scene at Southfield with the finish between Southfield-Lathrup and Detroit Henry Ford on Monday. Congrats to Lathrup and senior Ben Benford for his heroics. If that game goes to overtime, Henry Ford likely wins because Lathrup leading scorer Jonathan Williams was fouled out of the game. That made Henry Ford's decision to throw that long inbounds pass from underneath Lathrup's basket with 1.8 seconds left even more costly. If Henry Ford just throws a pass to half court and doesn't get off a good shot, the worst it could've done was go to overtime against Lathrup without Williams on the floor. Instead, Henry Ford got greedy and threw the inbounds out of bounds, which allowed Lathrup to get the ball back underneath its basket with 1.8 seconds remaining. We all know what happened after that.
