Last season, there was three Oakland County boys basketball teams that advanced to the quarterfinals, Birmingham Detroit Country Day, Southfield Christian and a team that hadn't advanced to the quarterfinals in eons, Lake Orion.
After Wednesday, the same exact scenario exists, except replace Lake Orion with Rochester, which won a regional for the first time since 1950 with a dismantling of Rochester.
Good luck to all in the quarters, but before worrying about that, Kosmo is here to offer his 3 stars for Wednesday's regional final games.
Jason Lee, Rochester - This kid might not get much recognition, but he's really starting to establish himself as an underrated but important point guard. He had gave the Falcons a little of everything against Lahser, dishing out eight assists, scoring six points and pulling down five rebounds despite his small stature. He sure played big though.
Edward Sumner, Country Day - Sumner may not look physically imposing, but boy is he impossible to stop. One of the state's top juniors was at it again in a win over Detroit Douglass, scoring 22 points for the Yellowjackets. Kosmo sure feels sorry for Flint Powers having to game plan for Sumner over the next few days.
James Young, Rochester - Kosmo has hesitated all year to make Young a first star because of his star stature, but he rose up in Rochester's biggest game of the season to date, scoring 27 points and pulling down 12 rebounds. This is usually the time of year where star players put teams on their back, and we'll see if Young does that next week.
