Six Great Games for District-Final Friday

13 Mar

Hardware will be passed out.  See what the best district-finals of the night are across the state.

Class A

Lansing Everett (20-2) vs. Grand Ledge (20-2) @ Okemos

Outlook: The third edition for these two CAAC Blue Division rivals, both winning on each other’s home court.  This one, however, is on a neutral site, and could serve as the best game of the night in Michigan.

Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills (19-3) vs. East Kentwood (21-0) @ Byron Center

Outlook: Did anyone think these two teams would have their respective records at the beginning season?  If so please raise your hand.  Unfortunately, one of these team’s season must come to conclusion.  This one will not disappoint.

Walled Lake Western (22-0) vs. Walled Lake Central (17-5) @ Walled Lake Central

Outlook: A fourth meeting  between the Warriors and Vikings.  Western won twice, once at Central, and the other for the KLAA Lakes Conference Championship.  Refs, we did not come to see you.  Please let the players decide this one unlike the previous meeting.  Nice point guard match-up here between Central’s Walter Kelser and Western’s Jerald Booker.

Clarkston (21-0) vs. Rochester Adams (15-7) @ Clarkston

Outlook: Continuing on the theme of conference foes reuniting, Adams and Clarkston play for the third time on the year.  Clarkston won the two prior meetings both by nine points.  However, as evident during the regular-season, the odds of defeating a team twice are extremely low, let alone three times.

Class B

Wayland Union (19-3) vs. Wyoming Godwin Heights (20-1) @ Wyoming Godwin Heights

Outlook: The best Class B district-final of the night.  Wayland lost their three games by a combined seven points.  The Wolverines are in the midst of another stellar season as one of Class B’s elite.

Detroit Henry Ford (15-5) vs. Detroit Community (16-5) @ Livonia Clarenceville

Outlook: The best east side district final of the night is at Clarenceville.  Community pummeled Bradford by 20 points, while the Trojans had to claw their way to a victory against CMA.  Will Community’s length and athleticism be enough to neutralize the speed and perimeter shooting of Henry Ford?
