Well, Thursday marked the end of a couple of roads. One it was the last day of February and two, it was the last night of meaningful boys basketball games around the state. There might be some makeup games tomorrow or Saturday, but it's pretty much on to the playoffs with most everyone done with the regular season. In honor of that, here are Kosmo's 3 stars for the last night of the regular season for boys basketball.
Akhemji Williams, Rochester Adams - It doesn't get much more historic than a perfect regular season and it doesn't get much better than what Williams has done of late. He was at it again, scoring 30 points in a win over Athens that gave Adams a 20-0 regular season. Wow to both the team and Williams.
Paris Bass, Birmingham Sesholm - Kosmo admits he thought Lahser had an outright OAA Blue title in the bag. But Bass scored 18 points and helped lead a furious second half comeback to help Seaholm knock off the Knights, who had to share the league title with Lake Orion.
Kyle Ervin, Birmingham Groves - Like Groves, Kosmo is wondering how different the outcome of the first meeting with Stoney Creek would've been had Ervin not been injured. Ervin was the star of the rematch at Groves on Thursday, collecting 20 points and 14 rebounds and making all the key plays down the stretch. He put his team on his back and led the Falcons to a 58-52 win and a share of the OAA Gold crown. What a star he has been all year
