Aaron Veihl added 13 points for the Warriors, while sophomore Luke German had a strong outing with 13 points and eight rebounds.

LAKERS MISFIRE AT LUDINGTON

Woeful shooting over the first three quarters stung the Spring Lake varsity boys basketball team in a 59-40 loss at Ludington.

The Lakers hit just five of their first 33 shots (15 percent) through three quarters of play Friday.
“If you had to pick the first reason, their defense was pretty tough,” said Lakers’ coach Bill Core, whose team falls to 8-7 overall and 6-4 in league play.

Austin Johnson led the Lakers with 17 points, but none of his teammates managed more than six points.

CRUSADERS NIP WARRIORS

Host Western Michigan Christian fought back and took the lead mid-way through the fourth quarter, but was unable to hang on and dropped a league game to Muskegon Catholic, 53-47.

Junior Henry DeKam led the Warriors with 13 points and classmate James Jackson added 10.

BIG 'B' BACK AT WMC

Western Michigan Christian sophomore standout center Bernard Smith, who two weeks ago transferred to Muskegon High School, is transferring back to WMC. He began attending classes on Friday.

The 6-foot-5 inch, 265 pound center will not be eligible the remainder of the season, but will be able to play next season next year for the Warriors. He was averaging 19 points per game and 10 rebounds per games when he transferred to Muskegon.

CALVARY CHRISTIAN WINS BIG

Fruitport Calvary Christian pulled away in the fourth quarter for an 81-62 win at Algoma Christian on Friday.

Patrick Asdell had a huge game for Fruitport Calvary, scoring 22 points and snatching down 18 rebounds. Mike Warren added 20 points and 10 boards, while Guthrie Collins finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds.
