Lyyski Jumper

Spring Lake's Lucas Lyyski attempts a jumpshot over an Allendale defender during Friday night's game. 

SPRING LAKE TWP. — Free throws can make or break a basketball team in close games, and that’s what happened Friday night when the Spring Lake lost a tough game to Allendale 60-57.

“As a team we’ve been struggling from the free throw line and tonight was no different,” Spring Lake head coach Bill Core said. “We were 5-16 from the line. That was the difference. It’s too bad that that basically cost us the game. We left too many points on the board at the free throw line and it’s a shame because I think for 32 minutes we may have outplayed them.”
