Fordson Tops Robichaud

17 Jan

Something new is happening at Fordson High School, with a school known mostly for football in the past, the Tractors are now above .500 (5-2) on the young season after defeating Dearborn Heights Robichaud 57-36 on Thursday night.  With junior guard Moe Zahr leading the way with a game high 17 points, and a smothering defense that allowed little to nothing in the middle of the paint, the game way a clear lopsided victory for Fordson.  The argument could be made that the game was won in the first quarter of the contest.  Behind Zahr’s 8 points in the first quarter, Fordson built a 16-7 lead after one, and never let the margin get under double digits the rest of the night.  The 2-3 zone the Tractors used on the Bulldogs was they key deciding factor in this game.  The zone set the tempo for the rest of the game, Robichaud was unable to receive a consistent interior post-game, and had to rely on perimeter jump shots, which didn’t fall on the night.

Also making contributions on the night for Fordson was senior Amin Haydous with 7 points, and fellow senior wing Hassan Doghman with 11 points and 4 rebounds.  Vernon Crump Jr. led Robichaud with 12 points.

Playoff Preview (part two cont.)

Class B Teams That Can Make A Run

River Rouge- Rouge is now back to full strength now after getting star forward Jamal Poplar back, who had to sit out the first semester after transferring from Willow Run.  Alongside Poplar is fellow junior Terrell Crawford.  Crawford is a raw scoring off-guard who just simply can score.  Rouge starts off in the Divine Child District, where they are faced with probably meeting up with Dearborn Heights Robichaud in the finals.  If Rouge is able to get past Robichaud, I see a path at least to the quarters.

Robichaud- As above stated, will be in the same district with River Rouge.  But don’t put anything past Robichaud as long as they have Lorenzo Bonam.  Bonam is a strong, physical point guard that can make plays.  Will have to get past Rouge in the district final.

Detroit Country Day- Might be the deepest team in the entire state.  The back court is made up of Lehigh bound Austin Price, who might have the smoothest jump shot in the area.  Complementing Price in the backcourt will be lighting fast junior point guard Edmond Sumner.  Who can go from zero to full speed in about a step.  Fellow junior Mory Diane will bring more athleticism to table and a another scorer.  Down low for the Yellow Jackets will be Texas Tech football recruit Poet Thomas, and glass eater Deshawn Lewis.  The reserves for DCD don’t lack talent as well.  Star football receiver Maurice Ways and Maceo Baston make up the bench, starters at any other school expect DCD.

Harper Woods Chandler Park Academy- Now during playoff time, some teams like to give the ball to their star players and let them do the rest.  CPA will have Michigan commit Derrick Walton to give the ball to and that is not a bad idea to do.  Derrick can go for 30 points and 10 assists any given night.  CPA will need another scorer to take pressure off Derrick, and Darius Bean will have to step up if CPA wishes to make it farther than last year’s 30 point embarrassment to DCD in the regional final.

Detroit Douglass- The funny thing is, that DCD, CPA, and now Douglass, all teams that can make it to at least the quarters, will all be paired up if they get past their respective districts into the same DCD regional.  Though low on bodies, Douglass makes up for it in talent.  Led by junior point Darrell Davis, a serious D1 recruit, Douglass has a true playmaker on the court.  If paired up with DCD, the post will be won by Douglass because of junior Andre Frederick.  Frederick is quick on his feet a real shot blocker even on the perimeter.  Junior Terrell Hale will be needed for secondary scoring in order to take pressure off from Davis.
