Mayor’s Notebook: A Holiday Feast

5 Jan

Special thanks to Mr. Randy willams for putting on this awesome event which featured over 50 games.  Thanks to T.J. Kelley for helping the media.  This event also has one of the best announcers in the game, Mr. Eric Tate, also known as three times.

Teams making noise

Let’s start in class B.  Everyone is talking about New Haven, but WATCH OUT for River Rouge.  They picked up a 69-55 win over Cinnanatti Withrow on day two to move to 4-0 and they take on Taylor Kennedy Tuesday.  They are led by 2017 guard Darian Owens-White, who picked up an MVP award and watch out for 2016 Dorian Watson as he is much improved.
Grosse Pointe South- They pulled out a overtime win over a good Novi team to move to 4-0 and play Canton on Tuesday.  2017 forward Brennan Bushka scored 22 points on his way to an MVP award.  Senior forward Jack Maher can shoot it, and junior point guard Zane Draper can play as well
Detroit Western- The Cowboys are on a 31 game winning streak after knocking off a good walled Lake Central team on day five.  Oakland commit Brailen Neely grabbed the MVP award.  He teams with sharpshooter Armami Tinsley, defensive specialist Karim Murray, energy man Josh Long, and the scrappy Kyree Boynton to make up the most dangerous squad in the PSL and will push for another Class A title.

Day four saw an instant classic as the now 3-1 Belleville Tigers beat a good Saginaw team by three. 2016 forward Calvin Blaydes was the MVP after putting up 25 points in 13 rebounds, sophomore sensation Davion Williams added 17 points and 8 rebounds, and senior forward Trevor Melinda chipped in with nine points and five rebounds.
