1/11/16

The second full week of the year is packed with great conference and non-conference games capped with big time Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. events at Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills and Warren Fitzgerald.  

Tuesday, 1/12/16
4pm, Detroit Renaissance (6-0) @ Detroit Cass Tech (3-5) Renaissance is the top team in the PSL and the state’s #2 team.  Cass took a big step last week with a home win over Western and will have an uphill battle against Renaissance.

4pm, Detroit King (5-2) @ Detroit Henry Ford (4-3) King is undefeated at 2-0 and looking to stay atop the PSL-East while 1-1 Ford will need to keep pace with PSL-West leader Renaissance (3-0).

7pm, Grand Ledge (5-1) @ East Lansing (6-0) The first of two tests for the leader of the CAAC-Blue as East Lansing (3-0) first hosts Grand Ledge (2-1). 

7pm, Williamston (5-2) @ Haslett (5-1) A cross conference battle of CAAC teams that also has two of the state’s top unsigned senior guards.

7pm, Northville (7-0) @ Salem (5-2) Both teams are 1-0 in the KLAA-Central so there’s still a lot of basketball to be played before the conference finals in late February.

7pm, Clarkston (4-1) @ Ann Arbor Skyline (4-3) A young Skyline team has loaded up their schedule as has Clarkston, a top 10 team in Michigan.  This game also features three of the state’s top sophomores.

7:30pm, West Bloomfield (4-2) @ Warren De La Salle (5-2) OAA meets CHSL in a cross county matchup that is more for bragging rights, but still has the players to make for a great game.

Thursday, 1/14/16
7pm, North Farmington (6-1) @ Clarkston (4-1) The top teams of the OAA-Red are also the #5 and #6 teams in the state.  This game has a strong chance to better than what it is on paper.

7pm, Allen Park Inter-City Baptist (4-1) @ Southfield Christian (5-1) The state’s top small school battle over the past five years and while Southfield Christian has been dominant over that time, APICB always gives Southfield Christian a battle.

Friday, 1/15/16
4pm, Detroit King (5-2) @ Detroit E. English Village (4-2) Whoever controls the pace wins the game as King can win by scoring less than 50, East English Village can score 50 in a half.

4pm, Detroit Western (5-2) @ Detroit Henry Ford (4-3) Both teams need wins on Tuesday and neither can afford to take two losses this week.

7pm, Stevensville-Lakeshore (5-1) @ Benton Harbor (5-1) These 1-1 teams are in the middle of the pack in the SWMAC.  A win potentially means a boost to a tie for the top conference spot and a loss will be a move to fifth place.

7pm, Ypsi Arbor Prep (5-1) @ Adrian Lenawee Christian (8-1) Independent of conferences, both teams are free to schedule and Arbor Prep is playing well while Lenawee Christian is the #2 team in Class D.  Colleges looking for unsigned seniors with size should make this game a priority.

7pm, East Lansing (6-0) @ Holt (5-1) East Lansing opens this week as the state’s #4 team and will get CAAC-Red tests twice this week.  Holt matches up well with and Holt’s home court following is as strong as any in the state.

7pm, Flint Beecher (5-1) @ Goodrich (6-2) Beecher is the state’s #8 team and #2 team in Class C.  Goodrich has a young, but very good backcourt with experience in the post and all will need to play at the top of their game to defend home.

7pm, Detroit Allen Academy (5-2) @ River Rouge (6-0) A can’t miss game of Allen, the #4 team in Class C, and Rouge, #1 in B, will have the house rocking with a back and forth pace leaving the crowd as exhausted as the players.

7pm, Saginaw Arthur Hill (6-0) @ Saginaw (4-3) The state’s #1 rivalry of the 21 century is where records are thrown out of the door and more than likely the first of three matchups over the next two months.

Saturday, 1/16/16

Floyd Mayweather, jr. Classic at Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills High School
