Grand Haven scored 40 of its points in the quarters, giving the Bucs a 53-34 victory in the makeup date.
The Bucs went on a 9-2 run to open up the action on Monday.
Connor Grimes got things started off for Grand Haven with a 3-pointer. The shot was followed by layups on consecutive possessions from Isaak Newhouse and Korey Searle, and a bunny by Adam Abraham.
Grand Haven headed into the second quarter up 19-6, but the Bucs’ offense began to sputter after the fast start. Grand Haven had three straight turnovers midway through the quarter, and Traverse City Central cut the Bucs’ lead to seven. The Trojans went into the half down six, 26-20.
“I thought getting off to a fast start was big — especially after Saturday,” said Grand Haven coach Steve Hewitt, referencing his squad’s loss to Rockford. “I was disappointed with the way we handled the ball in the second quarter. We got sloppy with it and had too many turnovers. “
The Bucs got back on track in the third quarter.
Grand Haven had a 19-2 run to start the second half, outscoring the Trojans 21-7 to head into the fourth up 47-21.
Grimes and Abraham, who combined for 13 points during that run, said they got Hewitt’s halftime message loud and clear.
