you wanted to play for River Rouge backwards in transition look at easy da Genova now with 8 votes still with the rulesrelentless with the pressure but look and what a delivery and Nigel Colvin is on fire to start this game he has eight points two three but that was looks good not a good look at I would force feed him the ball Johnny has a beautiful shot Lamont a rock said he's the best shooter in the entire state of michigan under you I hit the floor the body seemed to be bossy look at the distance notice wow that's a shove there no reason for that come on paul hayden is a guy they bring is committed to Central Michigan Michigan is a football defensive back that would be a good way to jam a receiver on the line but it's not something you can do in a high school basketball game and that might hear you so it will be Derek Slager whoever goes to the foul line and Derek Slager is a huge success story Think about this for a second he's the sixth man and he made all the conferences how does that happen? usually the best player the all conference bust is a starter has introduced the sixth man last year a shooter a rebounder such an effective player yes hard to do all conference is a six man that's for sure so it's 12-8 River Rouge here if the refs tried to figure it out because it was Grant Balcer who hit the ground so he's going to have to come in looking Metron Kochi moved by coach throws the ball why not? try to pull out your best free kick shooter does the first one won't work can you imagine how hard it is to step up alone in this environment with everything on the line? take a deep breath before the second second it's a good triple play 1:35 to play opening polls you should call to see how it's going to have a Nieuwenhuis comes in Noah whispering Bree coming into the game very good start for the Crusaders they have established they can handle their offense they have had a deep bench on the court so far showing everyone has an opportunity to contribute 100 we heard Coach Stone talk about they needed to be able to convert the whole unit Christian and they've done it to this great balm guy our game to McCormick this is the journey, you might want to get Nigel Colvin a shot that will go to Donovan Freeman he'll get kicked where's the aforementioned tin of golden wattle triple rotten island the beautiful traveler's berry two moving parts triple three has eleven moves Tough off the glass on the left hand I know the Cleveland Crusaders co-captain on the lane shot was blocked to be a whistle before the hand looked past Chandler Collins versus versus eCourse his rival assigned Nigel Colvin, Dude, well, not bad, 11 for 13 for three and in the second quarter he went on and tied a state record with seven 3-pointers.
Coach Todd says that he thinks he's the best shooter in the state. That is high praise. I haven't seen anyone better so far. you decide to apply pressure from a jump ball situation and we make a rev game plan you know you are going into it the relentless is a danger zone if you turn your back on this defense it is a sign of weakness you have than to stay in your triple threat position eyes on the edge river

has extreme speed if you turn your back they're going to tie you up now you're swearing to the bone we can get it in shot will go the night of the mermen and here comes the rage a lot time on the clock can they stop cooking elisha it's too much to ask for again by colvin everything he filmed has been perfect rocking the bass line trying to get through spy in four seconds to cry steel by unit christian great effort to get this chandler collins steal but there was pressure i couldn't river rouge rivers basketball is my life that's all that you don't know even when i was a college coach you know rivers basketball to the things and lessons i learned a plan for coach the green still isn't for me my mom was a cheerleader on the state championship team and my uncles played on the state championship teams so all of my upbringing in my entire basketball world is rooted in River so I understand the tradition of this group of guys because the tradition wasn't born when we were winning state championships so i had to go back and put them up there with who they really represent when it comes to state championship hardware no one has more than river rouge he was head coach lover stone rivers basketball is my life that it's all that you don't know even when i was a college coach i was you know rivers basketball to things and lessons i learned a plan for coach green was instilled in me my mom was a cheerleader on the state championship team and uncles who played on teams state championship, so all of my upbringing in my entire basketball world is rooted in River, so I understand the tradition of this group of guys because the tradition wasn't born when we were winning state championships, so I had to go back and put them to the test. the height of who they really represent he's a good coach and think about this your high school son and every day you're taught by a coach who spent time on the staff at Ohio State Eastern Michigan and Bowling Green I'll tell you Lamont a Stone is a very high level coach, a great teacher and also has character, he has led them to two of the 14 state titles.
The pace for unifying this content is too fast, but that's a good answer at this point. river road. I am for almost 70 points in this game. Also, five turnovers is a lot in the first quarter. Coach Stutzman told me if he could keep it up. under 15 love their chances to win this game right now they're on pace with 20 gipson contributions from a few different guys who bauhaus with the last layup another look to run again may like this fast pace here good offensive rebounding but start away the other Jason likes the effort we're going to court three look at him complete back off work well can't be satisfied with the offense we're coming in to open up the second group let's make sure Iron Mountain at Pewamo Westphalia is a pretty intense game.
These are tense times. - very fast, very aggressive, much more athletic because Tricia again got behind the details using the lefty Collins, so now the Christian unit is taking advantage of the spot here to open the second quarter. the Christian unit is showing the law of the maple, especially in the Boers. Scott sushma said I think rebounding is the number one key in this game. Because if you fight on the boards you limit second chance opportunities, but it helps you to use it as a tool to control the pace. Coach Susman said their win against Benton Harbor in the regional finals really gave a bit of confidence for this game, there's a similar type of component that could give up a bit in size and athleticism, but make up for it with tenacity and determination, you got a good development of both teams playing basketball brave and don't forget the community Christian is able to pressure the ball in his semifinal win against Ludington de Forest flooding Jimmy starts the offense and the authority comes in instead of 20 feet which is what Rivers wants to do roger coleman gives it to the city of m tremont inside might move good luck cheat legend how well his cheat legend is going to be really good so the next big star is a wheel attacking again the pain the community tricia Ryan fine before this game started if you had told me this pace was being played I would say River Rouge would dominate the transition game I was completely wrong unit Christian is athletic they are tough and skilled enough to hang with Lamont a rock and the Panthers still love that red sport.
I'll be sure I couldn't make it. ask me tomorrow under the basket I think Noah whispered incoming who could watch off screen triplet looks like you might have gotten a piece on Brian Jenkins he's out of place okay this is a danger zone why number 32 white TJ Vancouver ank is a key contributor but he has two fouls if they can push him to get that third the job becomes a lot easier a major component of what they do is see if Brittany decides to attack and instead carve almost turns it around does the same don't slouch good patience watch out for Zach Valhalla smoke three point lead so you see the fans standing up now instead of eight to run they almost get another steal Donovan kicks it out Oh three point time for my comparisons what do you do defensively you're scared to death of nigel cold in the corner, but he's surrounded by other good offensive players in vancouver and they took him down from under.
We got a time up here if the brezza were all knotted up 22 22 in the d2 final right after this we talked about the winners. having our unit from Hudsonville Christian being Portland thirty two to seven to capture the division 2 football title a lot of those guys trying to do the same thing here in basketball and talking to River Rouge coached Lamont a stone so what? what are your thoughts when you see the unit? Christian how is that way of playing but more importantly I know these guys are a bunch of winners that's what worries me about them seven of their 14 players were in state championship football or football team. 3:45 to play the second quarter and forever comes training for the revolution in traffic don't go and here comes the unit slow things down this is a time for patience on offense and River Rouge can get a little impatient they love to play in transition unit christian and white river wounds at marone another steal one of friend chandler collins tried to get it back brilliant tony for panthers or salesmen river breeze runs a fun offensive system lemont a stone has told them guys to come out and play hard we are going to work on defense and we will have fun on the offensive end.
I don't think they're enjoying the last two trips with less than three to play the second quarter. Look at the pressure he will continue to bring to try to dribble in Louisville. you don't learn the beauty of your bucket restart your defense and with an advantage the bench doesn't get that third foul the coach is cold to me not unless it was the engine that is driving the machine is giving his team an advantage of two points almost a turnover and it's on him back the degree of difficulty 8.9 look, he's crossing his body horrible left angle now that was ten eight nine three college player you know what a quarterback was on the championship team of football that we just showed you did not play football badly too, he has serious hardware, switch to Maldini, we have a tied score and a world of River lives on beauty, Christian's turnovers, that's exactly what What Coach Stone said those guys had to do if your unit, Christian, what do we always do?
Listen to Coach Casey, do the Pistons need a pass on time on target? You can't be lazy with your passes here. He has to dedicate himself to what he is doing intentionally. the wet hand is out there still not really sure what he meant by that they with the unit person so far they deliver turnovers for the christian capital unit their offense is coming off under two botches to play incoming pass to zach bellhop white house looking for space he doesn't have much travel to try this this the house under for the offensive take back situation looming at halftime easy hoffman from madeline high school she needed that push to get to the sofa after she was diagnosed with Lucy's disease found it in basketball new the fish to get off the sofa I must say well she hit from both head coaches and well the highlights in the first step let's go to Fox Sports Detroit in the meantime River Rouge with a bucket legend jeter raised with the colon take advantage but don't be surprised the crusader community christian is hanging they beat benton harbor which tells me its been no home in a while get him outta here river he leaves with the block, his legend, cheetah, yes, and he could become a legend. law athlete with great anticipation skills looks like you have to play volleyball because that was a spike almost another 200 bodies flying all over the unit christian has numbers if they wanted russell to travel barrett dice slogans for traveling now and i get what's going on here when you play against River Rouge you go faster than you're used to you know that here your body goes slow but your mind goes so fast and that's why you do unforced turnovers and please I'm going to tell you something about River Rouge going to I'll tell you everything you need to know maybe Division one state champ dive so Annie Lincoln gets this score 78 47 this is great Micah Paris has a four point lead through River Rouge three point shot not good reba no line sack doghouse i have one word to describe unity cristiano on the glass too manly my house you see applying pressure set up his heels stayed right on the line so a turnover It's the age for an Illusion, both teams have been the first time, okay, here's an aspiring fit man come into the game,you want to make sure you don't put him in a position to commit that third foul or you just wasted the last three and a half minutes. with him sitting on the bench you have to believe that if they are going to bring him in they are going to try to find something for him 12 seconds to play the second quarter foul called on Kemal Hey ok they had a foul to make take those rocks since he brings an aggressive mentality like a soccer player that increases the intensity.
Minh enters from the bench. He has a little better foot glide on that one. I like the seven second effort to get color. Dodge Whistler that one will do. being on jason norton senior another foul to give two seconds left what are your options tim less than two well i think you're going to see a lot of quick hit laws in the pen which is a big massive call wow they didn't have anything else i think that was the right call he was under pressure now she for me did it before court i was inspired to look at it again we saw it good on replay dumpy safe and the officials don't have the plunger you see we did good so to speak Tim before Zach Daum's home comes online and it's two of three free throw opportunities, he has eight points now, there is no time on the clock, in addition, the advantage does not. 16 minutes of basketball to look at one more time tell me I don't think I'm getting any colder period no one asked you if I just did 28 28 we have a good one cooking here right now what will it take to bring it home next second half? our defense isn't up to par it's not good rules basketball we're reaching too much we're betting too much instead of playing solid man-to-man defense and getting them to score on us we'll make that adjustment at halftime what other adjustments are you looking to make happen and then we have to go inside more too many jumpers we play inside out just sit outside here sounds great coach good luck second hand Thanks Johnny back to you is preaching it you got an inside out play we got a good one just 16 minutes to decide the division to the finals stay with us pitching we have a lot of halftime coverage including Michigan coming here on Fox if you look like a normal high schooler who had a sinus infection and I took her to the doctor and we were on some meds and got better for a couple of days and welcome back to the Breslin Center.
We have one close here, all busy at half time at 28 28 now after being diagnosed with Wilson. Izzy Hoffman thought that his basketball career was over, but little did he know that he would actually give him even more strength in hopes of continuing the fight every day. and I took her to the doctor and we were on some meds and she got better for a couple of days and then she got worse again and it just didn't make sense, you know, it had been a couple more weeks and we went in and she got tested for mono some other stuff they were pretty sure whatever i was fighting was viral and that i would be fine during that time i went from about a hundred and fifty five pounds to 120 and i couldn't II I slept all the time and couldn't go up and down the stairs . sister and it was very hard for me because I didn't know what to do.
I would cry myself to sleep at night because I didn't know what was going on so we packed up the car and headed over to Cincinnati Children's Hospital and had her liver biopsy there and a few days later the pathology was back and they were able to make the call that she had Wilson's disease, you know, I really compared it to when your child has strep throat and you're going to start that medication and in a few days you know you'll be fine. I had no idea what a battle we had ahead of us Wilson's disease is a genetic disease where your body accumulates too much copper and copper accumulates mainly in two places either in the liver or in your brain and in my case it mainly accumulates in my liver and when it accumulates in your liver you go into liver failure I'm a little just because there are only eight thousand cases in the country i am on a pretty strict copper free diet and always have to take my meds.
I have to sleep a lot if I don't sleep at least eight hours. I get sick. I have migraines and can't function the next day like I have no other choice. to sleep basketball has given me a lot and I think the biggest thing it has given me is a way to cope because every day I can step on the ground and it is the hoop that I concentrate on putting the ball in the hoop that I don't have to think about the fact that my counts are not going the way I want or that I don't feel well I don't have to think about any of that because every time I go on the court I play like this it could be the last, that was something that really changed the way I i played the sport because not only do i play the sport with a passion because it's something that's fun to do but i also play it because i never know in my last minute minutes and attack basketball we have a motto attack life get up every day attack the day dominate day in day out and that came from this work ethic his determination to want to play the games you know i would say hey coach i'm going to be in the game today but i'm not 100 percent he only shows up if he gives me what that you have and you will find it when you see her game so do all she has to do is be on the floor and so pretty much the world i have conquered something bigger than this game without basketball i think i would still be on the couch how getting up and playing basketball for her really helped her and everyone around her just getting up and taking care of her back on the court playing again the first time i got to see her back on the court freshman year she was like she was back in my freshman year and it took a lot of blood sweat and tears because i had to get away from someone who needed help up and down the stairs just someone who goes up and down the floor and can play basketball games Tucker took me to a couple of things during summers at different colleges and they said yeah you'd be great a chance was it just one of those things or i was like wow thank god i decided this wasn't going to be something to ruin my life i met a girl who was like 110lbs very weak just a shell of herself the girl put a lot of time and was so disturbed that at any time this was but this girl decided colleges and we have seen the basketball team play and we know what we laugh at but how do these people think they are here watching a basketball game for what they don't realize they're watching it's been a miracle she keeps fighting it's not like we just crossed a finish line and now we're healthy and playing basketball on this perfect sheet i mean we know that the battles will still continue and I live my life where I don't let Wilson's disease find me.
I defined Wilson's disease and that's something I really want to get published about and I want people to know about. it's because wilson's disease is not a disease where you have to ruin your life, it's something that helps me in your life, he will continue his basketball career at hope college next fall, it's an incredible story of strength and resilience. second half of MHSA Division 2 basketball a basketball on Fox Sports Detroit is presented by Baker College now comes next Johnny Kane and Timucua break down first half stats MHSA to finals men's basketball are presented by Baker College be more and buy your local Toyota dealers visit buyatoyota.com Toyota we go to places close together Christian said going into this game Jim that we're going to have to be able to get the bounce back on the basketball even though they were too small we'll see how well they do it. they've done River Rouge said we've got to be able to turn them around which they've been able to do 28 28 we're all very worried about deciding it's a very aggressive game and I think it's going to be a great second half of the big numbers are when You look at Nigel Coleman, one of the best shooters anywhere in high school basketball, he got a great look, he beat square shoulders three of four 3-pointers and 11 points in the first half, he was phenomenal shooting the ball and I was really impressed with the unit.
Christian is able to get into the lane and he has a +6 scoring advantage in the paint and I like the variety on him as well. They received contributions from their first six players in their rotation. Sometimes they get a bit complicated. Now here's a big key when you look at the stats we heard Lamont a stone he said we don't play river rouge basketball we're bringing the heat in the second half that's bad news that happens because longing Christian gave it ten times in the first half that's a huge number, the halftime stats that Baker College brought you, one that stands out to me is Christian's 17-rebound unit, which was a level of concern for them, they've been able to overcome in rebounding up to this point both teams obviously back making their adjustments you'll see how it all plays out we've got a good one Bruin it's our last state final of the day it's Division two we'll bring the third corner right after this hopefully one of our better halves. ten halftime turnovers ten and a lot of them are the ones we can't do one thing we have to learn we can't let's try to throw it over the top and if it's weak and if it comes out you've got dinner written to that ball because it's going to be you because they're going to run into it, so every time we do that, hopefully one of our better basketball halves, they know we've got ten turnovers in tennis halftime and a lot of them are the ones we can't make one. thing, we have to learn, we can't, let's try to throw it over the top and if we can, if it comes out, you have a fool written on that ball because they will beat you because they are going to run. toward that, so every time we do that and we can't do these things like that and try to get the ball because you know what that kid does he sticks his hand in there and it's over 5,000 fans that showed up at the quarterfinal game of hudsonville unit christians at calvin college vs grand rapids south christian have a big fan base here today and a state final against river rouge and scott suits ma knows a lot about winning was in the semis as head coach at northern Christian in 86 won a championship in 87 took the girls from his current school in 2005 then ran it the next year in 2006 the second half is on instead of totally deflated with the name Dan filled the bucket you know later at halftime coach stone let his team form on his defense he saw the basketball of River Rouge to see if there is a notable difference it seems like one one three one he did not see that in the first half he had told us that they were willing to go to what his we got fouled on the triple down it's going to be one he faced Nigel Colt in second person that's not a foul it's a crossbody my watch sets hours it's the easiest decision the refs will have all day remember you don't need to block the shot all you need is a hand up for that rain you go past it not through it.
The first free throw is good. Noah whispers that he has seven nine bases. You love it. the third the lefty snap 30 37 12 to play the third quarter Donovan Freeman is a compliment even this game for a lot of opposition Nigel Coleman Coleman had 11 points he could only six shot attempts it turned out the River Rouge comes unity Christian knowing this way he will go to the line for a way. I'll call Freeman. I think, hey, if you don't want to play River Rouge on a ham court. D go ahead, he tries to hit in transition. Who was he? non-contact sport I don't believe this word is first in for river rouge coming up kamal head donovan freeman heads to the bench to have a quick word with lamont a stone stone coach said yesterday we don't necessarily have to turn them around early but it's the non-stop continual pressure that we feel we'll wear them down, it's a residual effect and in the fourth quarter it feels like the Christian unit will wear them down and that's what River Rouge could take over, that's great. girl who isn't looking for home runs at first looking for singles and doubles and in the end it will make a difference and his G is the lefty reference you're getting excited about baseball aren't you?
He's coming in a couple of weeks three weeks Vancouver and picks up his third foul so just a minute and a half into the third quarter again TJ is a big part of the unit Christian makes so three fouls on him. He would pass the ball to Dan. instead he sets up the screen, Brandon Tony can get it, who is Vancouver, he kicks him in the corner, did you see that vision? love to watch it again good view from Vancouver Vancouver and couldn't nail a better trajectory fastball for a strike, but the Rouge turns it around like that.
I could make a baseball reference: I heard you 7 feet into the batter's box. losing it in the big strike zone good pressure being put on like Vancouver and forward now let's dig in a bit and clear up son stops short shots offensive rebounds instead unit Christian has come out harder and more focused here in the second half and I like the stone of Montes to let his team play a little many situations here you would see that the coach calls time out sometimes playing to get out of theadversity can be hunted take a look at Donovan Freeman or excuse me no one was worried when the three up front who were College range Colvin has been locked up in the second half good defense by Ryan Aikens on the corners now defense is applied up front a Christian Donovan Freeman unit and then finds its way the ground shot won't roll back the other way because this learning in traffic abandons it triple kid three others and now River Rouge will call a timeout it's an 11 point lead part of an old 13 road over brian jenkins again a little out of control from this tiredness but taken yeah i like all three but i love the pass it's been a complete coke ma just made a bold statement let's go out and show that we are the best team in the state of michigan is possible because of Division one if shalini lincoln can one today you got hit deep but when you put it into perspective river rouge silvered salani lincoln and beat them by getthis is a score of 78 247.
I'll tell you what positive reinforcement is. That is what you give your children. She believed me. The best team. Get out there and run. I'll tell you right now. of time left won't play four minutes in the third quarter game runs here what 13 run hots now another tournament rules here come now the deficit to seven here comes that full court pressure almost another good thing Hands Johnny got that ball. I assure you that the bobble will be a bit crowded on the scoreboard. Is he what happened within the limits of TJ Vancouver? This is a great trip. long possession You can listen to the patches. a gym rat no one spent more time in the gym their freshman sophomore year and junior seasons worked their way into this rotation paying dividends now three pointless tomorrow hey haha ‚Äč‚Äčlove to box out and rebound by mangu beruete nut box unit Christian triples his triple there is a nine point lead, how about a triple, then the 251 to play in the third?
Welcome back to the Breslin Central Division. Two endings. Unit. Christian on River Rouge. Now River Burgess head coach Lamont a stone spoke to me before the game about when. River bruise win championships they win them back to back they won them 61 to 65 and then again 69 to 72 and then when Lamont took over the show they won the championship in 98 he told his sons they wouldn't get the ring until they we'll win it again. the next year in '99 they ended up winning it and they got the ring for both years of those championships but today he told me before the game that if they win the championship game today they will go on vacation and say I'm staying in and tell them I'll book rooms for next year because next year they're coming back that's why again you know he should probably keep his room key okay both coaches remember lamont rock in college majored in psychology so he's preaching vision and confidence and optimism for the future how did you get that ring back that's the idiot i stayed in a holiday inn express i'm not a psych major but i did good 43:34 call rouge one too many passes you know christian take and lo they spin again, they make it too hot when they watch the game movie together, there will be one when they need a man who would have been heaven.
Oh possession 14:28 to go and a nine- point leads to build the clock and maybe I'll make it in double digits coming the river is in marine plays and Tony picks up his dribble for help he gets it Micah parish tried to give up but it's unit Christian with another take away has to set something up, no, listen, close the window to double digits and every time they score the unit, Christian gets more excited defensively and they're rebounding and they're running like they're the strongest team fast. understands he's got it now we're swearing to his love another floater in the lane that can't be stopped right now 13 point lead this is as simple as i can say if ripple rules can't deliver christian unity they're not going to win this game 11 out of 17 have come in the third and here he is creating off the dribble with the floater it's the type of rim another look yeah it's a hard shot very hard shot and I will say there are a lot of contributions and sometimes we focus so much on the scoring but the guy who is really impressing me as a heavy impact player in all categories TJ Vancouver puts the sword down now the price is finger time my coach suits me here in the third quarter he got over it 19 2 6 6 of 8 off the floor that's efficiency knowing this where he licks he'll take a hit in the game comes Brett Foster my birth beauty Christian never in his history won a state championship with the boys coach seats nor was he the girl's coach when they wanted to put their 2006 down there's still plenty of time to go practice a minute to play the 3rd quarter Donovan Freeman looking for some space it's a weird hard shot from Swayze in Kemal lane hey we got an offensive foul we bought baseball for from Tigers tomorrow afternoon you want to make sure you tune in to chef giving one o'clock and Dan Petry beyond the call Tigers and Braves fight in Tigers City again tomorrow afternoon Tigers Spring Training Brave Tigers in Lakeland Florida work Lots of Fox are going to choke us pressure is applied unit Christian names the printer they throw it out and get sued Brian Jenkins this one won't come back to the other side Freeman from the rivalry puts the ball down we have a blockade thaw against From what you see, he thinks they made it.
On Luke's night, a couple of free throws came, one of the biggest keys for River Rouge in this game. Lamont, a stone, told me that we have to generate open shots for Colvin. I took Holmen, one of the best shooters on this. He did in the second half. only got two points johnny we gotta get him to go donovan freeman doing his part this loose system panthers from river is coming from the newer or was he the head coach also coach stone was on green turf khloe and doctors murtabak both death Pinklon Freeman's four points have come at the free throw line as you sink 17 seconds you have to believe they're going to hold for the last shot 11 whistle Eric being guarded by Micah Parish beats them on the dribble loses control and they go flip the basketball that will give her Rouge a chance here Tim she can cover a little bit of the courtroom they have a lot of speed to get him up but she throws his pants and hands off that way she has a much better chance. in order for Donovan Freeman to have some momentum, he brings in some defensive substitutions here.
Evan Nieuwenhuis gets the ball back to Micah, die, die on the glass, so how about we give our unit away? Christian with a 19-8 lead in the third quarter and 11 points leads eight minutes to decide go see the decision to the final Detroit is good now they lined up so you have to be ready to attack the advantage for the Hudsonville unit Christian in the third were fueled by Noah Wiz's elite play they wore out their easy senior quarterback on the football team that won a state championship colleges are starting lower height is rising and when you look at it, doesn't look like what it's like to be smart he understands angles boy he's also a very strong football player but that AAU background certainly helps let this be a lesson everyone plays a variety of sports you're always so expiring here , eight minutes left to decide, people buckle up like a river of Paris, lose nutrition, it is difficult to prepare a lot, they are going to save the line.
Look now, you have to sink the pressure of the whole court a little one and jump How strong is your D? Christian with the ball dragged before you walk. He can't get it all back at once. Are they this way? I think they're going to reward a timeout: head coach Lamont is a rock, he's fine, saves possession gives the unit. Christian Crusaders sit on this lead and feel they have enough points that it would be a horrible mistake against this pressure it's intense and it's going to be more than they've ever seen in their lives there looks a lot like the legendary Lofton Green lamonta stone two state championships at river rouge coach green hat 12 lamont a green sense when he was in sixth grade he entered the river rouge system, played that system for eight years to play his senior year and knows that if you want to win championships, it's on defense.
Now is the time to change the defensive bugs on the unit. Christian and you aggressive. above the hoop the big shot of river rouge below them that's the mother tongue and it's brilliant head back no easy headshot i know you headed to second vancouver and you take all the time to say that today all the tough games Vancouver understands there's that pressure again to talk about most all-time titles. We talk about the all-time victories over the spin and the green. A lifelong trainer at River Rouge. Second all-time behind Lloyd Johnson. overseeing tournaments coming up in the fourth quarter unit christian hadith that is a big number so far three in the fourth quarter but that number continues to rise this score will get closer to 6:30 to play like the paris look that was on the floor on that kid he's going to try to beat Bell House with the dribble he does it on the left hand Houston that athleticism is 47 2 4 1 2 five okay he's one of the counts it looks like women are huge, got six men on this board defensively right now we're bootlegger now at that point coburn under and all five you think that's ok best shot at double digits once again cj vancouver ii grew up on a farm does that surprise you ? he's got the strength of an old man's farm already loves his game he's a continent the big compliment 50 to 40 drive Christian the Subaru's have an answer is 7/3 my comparator buy parishes driven six of his eleven here in the fourth quarter Chandler guy stoppin poppin coke says he's a skilled enough athlete on our team walks up five minutes to play yelling Oh here's an old school philosophy Wow in a steel to buy so Kamal Hayden with the chance he intends to find that defensive clash the pace of this forum quarter has now officially hit light speed it's been fun to see what we won't go it's a good time to let you know time is running out on Iran the d5k presented by Fox Sports Detroit DTE Energy the near inability to go to foxsportsdetroit.com you don't want to miss it again on a sunday april 28th we start at the big tiger finish up comerica park sign up now before the race goes off while the blitz the couple benefits from the free kick made and they lets set up the press let's go unit christian must attack to score the seven point game lazy passed his damn whistle before the shot and that's going to go against wigan rouge a chance there tim - bang bang good went with the range great again use direction for a few shoves to the floor that's what it wasn't here where he got in there he was a quarterback he was fired before parsonage today about parsonage picks up his third foul he's well under five to play it's the pressure again as you go on time on target this time pass here comes the track Chandru college against few looking to kick it back out there is Pittsburgh waiting for it to happen at every turn and say what I like though join Chris who is not forcing it they have a seven point lead they can wait what they want and now they have a short begging that was a foul it looks like a foul on the three point shot that is tucked into the corner you tell him to the babe that Colvin climbs looks like you slid it hard to see from that angle where is Nigel Colvin two points in the second half none in the fourth quarter and credit See the defenses?
Freeman puts it in the glass sight with the rebound and farm, okay, that was a male reppuken. I don't list the weight of him, but he is throwing it around. This would be a great three point opportunity for the River Rouge Panthers when I call a goon. Do you agree with that? I will agree with that. Another compliment from Turner. I'm a little short on freedom of choice. I kind of agree you'll hear that from the crowd but that's okay it's a five point game like four minutes to play River Rouge cooking with peanut oil on a 72 run to the right now remember unit Christian as a Laster full of state champion football but most importantly football they will have to play very hard have a football mentality with the ball there are cons to Chandler we will have a timeout which was timely because that ball was almost stolen right there by Michael Parish Scott's is lot have the blue towel in hand I'm going to try and calm the troops down here 52:47 we've got a good one down the stretch to make sure once you slip it off and hope is all Drive listening to the new river ferry we remember Last time Lamont came out a stone said we have to beat them to 60 points 19 turnovers so far for the Christian unit 5 in the fourth quarter that number can't keep going up andripping off the Rings despise him 11-5 in the last three with Chandler College trying to get rid of him, ultimately not restarting the city even though he's a big man.
I love the strength of TJ Vancouver. He would try to have the ball in his hands as much as possible, but he has it. to make power cuts to try to get theirs you're breaking full court pressure for the duration of the second half that can wear you down and again that's what we talked about that's what they count on for River Rouge to let the pressure put on make mental mistakes make physical mistakes here the pressure again three minutes to play Vancouver i'll go Legend Jeter remember that name legend Jeter did it later the next company is just stop fighting sighs doesn't understand his role Vancouver is not heart and soul of this team rotation number six 22 play from the corner took tests was not good - jason norton you know christians going back to free press time look what happened here i want you to look in the right corner that's where colvin is they made the wrong decision the best shooter in the building is number 21 at the bottom of the screen he is money still three shots in the game first free throw good TJ top score top rebounds top steals what else you want results in number two and help state star 11 points to bring a seven point game now watch unit christian putting that pressure on the drive to half courthey rockin foul come on you cant make snow whispering its good to light it up i get it playing with passion the bodies are flying you're sacrificing your body a bit you know when you get into a fight you even come back to it Are you back?
These guys first beat me head to toe building my new body shots. This is really impressive. Aggressive confrontational basketball. It's been fun to see it again. a seven point game is like three possessions here we gotta start making saves no more basket trades q 34 to play might have a chance to make it a two possession game if he's able to get one of these free throws jaian giving lose he has generated the money from turnovers they just aren't turning them into points on the other end unification able to break right now that path takes him to Vancouver on both hands that was what was a great bucket for him great job on the press break keeping eyes on the floor and able to find a cutting DJ van Kooten now you can learn a lot by watching what players do when their stress and anxiety level is low this team look at Vancouver stress free right now is a nine point game ten left and be good you're doing good just relax here we go this golden cat iron offensive rebound let's roll out thanks and kick it we got a travel violation if you would have told this I mean the Christian unit would have 20+.
Turnovers in this game I would have said Aloha completely wrong 21 turnovers awesome awesome but here's the seven point lead 92 seconds left I don't do it below It's going to Christian unit here Vancouver and it will hit the floor extremely hard you can hear it from here but watch from the weak side coming over the monster division. I know he's in a lot of pain but right now he's thinking I have a 29th minute left in this season and we have a chance to win our first boys state championship in school history this elbow is bleeding it's in a lot of pain but I bet it doesn't come out let's send it to lauren jabari lauren two minutes left to play they are calling him back guys pretty direct they got work to do with a minute twenty nine remaining but the way this team can score in clusters and score in streaks is the anyone's game right now to run obviously drive christian right now in the driver's seat they've got to feel good about where they are but you've got to take the salt out of this thing the biggest baddest guy in the building right now is Vancouver, he got his elbow bandaged, he's swollen, he's bleeding, he's limping, he's got blood on his uniform and he's coming out of the line around the football team has made me I can't believe he's a linebacker in shorts right now yet His name is manse Travis for backup Colvin that one won't go but I think he's going to shoot 222 Unity Christian turnovers the problem is that River Rouge has only converted those into 15 points not very efficient we've been talking a lot about nigel colvin what a tremendous season he's had his biggest out of this game community crochet playing it in a minute as a member of the unity basketball team christian in a hug kukoc scott suits me, but along the lines of nigel coleman, who has largely been held in check tonight, we've got him working early in this game, he's got 14 points, didn't score in the second, only had two points in the third, maybe here in the fourth quarter, still some time left. you see one go through your dick alone in the middle of the second quarter we talked about the fact that they won't run something to cool down and the shots they never made never gave me the third quarter neither five point game 15th minute left Christian dealing with the press again they pass half court approaching a minute to play it may be time to start following the five point game i like to go for the steal we have a timeout before the phone unit christian saw they were in trouble i think one came from head coach Scott so for me and the point of the stick has been brilliant in the fourth quarter using his timeouts to avoid turnovers let's just say okay this little focus here we go piston and then this unit Christian team has such great chemistry why good as a team they did a lot of community service at christmas they went and gave gifts to the underprivileged they served projects she feels non stop what a great investment in the community but also what a great reward they are about to get.
Christian gets it with 55 seconds remaining. Bauhaus. I think they're going to say River Rouge brought it down. a store in this case here is the house once you have the defendant in the air i don't mind going for him but you don't get the whistle you keep possession and guess what other time to talk it a long time to think for sure you have to be strong with the ball but with less than a minute to go we are lying on three runs and getting steals is going to be tough they may have to try Christian drive free kick they may have one more chance to generate a steal both teams now with a timeout remaining again you talk about the numbers in river rouge has been able to convert the basketball or convert the drive Christian over 22 times let's see what they decide to do and then look to score all this is coming Hudson you didn't Christian it's strong on the ball and maybe we shouldn't be surprised because they played a very athletic team from Benton Harbor in the regional finals up by 19.
They want that great endgame but the crusaders are tough and strong nerd christian there's only a timeout left they must be wise as plates vancouver become chat knocked out last touch what did coach say stone just said its time we gotta turn 'em we gotta go sideways a dog right shot not no whistler's hand i know he hasn't been a focal point of the offense but now is the time she tried to give colvin a shot he's the best shooter of the three michael paris lookout bad stuck tolven like in the corner yeah they look older yeah , they don't look too rushed there but they get what they want again there's still a lot of clock and manpower on the issue that's the fourth foul Vancouver as long as he's not around on the court unit Christian is going to stop by today we created big free kicks soft hit no pressure for him all his points have increased the strength of free kicks using free kicks as time out labonte stone talked to his floor defenders to improve defense perfect three point game and here it is the pressure again here is the trap again and we have a foul that will go against Kemal Hagen I think he says I think I tied him up the strikes they say we got him arm first while they had the perfect trap exactly what you want you don't want losing your defensive integrity and I don't think he did it to me that looks like a jump ball there's senior Ryan Takens coming to the line we just saw the senior four wrote Rouge Donovan Freeman berry a critical pair to make it a three point game for a chance to make this a two possession game with 26 seconds left isn't bad at all hey these kids have guts taking those nine points can you imagine?
What would you be? Johnny, listen, we have to move her away from the corner of the board. I have a solo press, no, because a lot of times the guys that aren't standouts, this is Big Bear, easy boat substitution, see Zack, now the house comes in Evan Nieuwenhuis and now it's job to climb in Colvin's jersey but I don't leave with a five-point lead 20 seconds remaining from the events we've seen all day, why are you trying to block three-point shots? All you have to do is get up now. Did he really make it hard to tell from that angle? an effort today 13 points on closer inspection and it looked like micah parish played a trick by going down on the pitch it all means the chance needed to cut it off micah first is three it was nothing for these youngsters too four game points I get a big smile on my face when I see someone come up and show they've been working their whole life practicing free throws for a moment like this and then they put Micah Parrish has made 10 of his 15 in the fourth quarter a chance to make it a two point game continues why do you have to look to fall if you can't steal right away it looked like it might have been a double dribble it's basketball from nibiru 12 seconds to play down three what happened in his last game for river ended in a similar situation and it was pro nigel cold had knocked down a three to send the game into overtime river rouge obviously one and i'll tell you what right now with all the momentum if they take this to overtime would you really do it in favor of river rouge huh? are you kidding?
That's a swim drive right here, you never give up, you're able to get another rotation forest on the double dribble, let's hear when we get this bass here like that. way No three let's go back to the semis Nigel Coleman with the three safeties in the corner to send him into overtime it worked but you know the unit Christian isn't going to let him as well if you can get the quick layup it's not a bad call with this pressure defense : good looks anything exactly what you wanted Nigel Coleman had more time didn't square and what was the reaction as cop suits a lot and bench hook from hudson drive addition go thank you lo looked clean Freeman with the rebound the long solo rebound inside a free throw unity christian you get the first state championship and your boys basketball story that final no one less concerned on the line you hear the chant of the student section neesee i think you we will win.
Look what the 32, what a brave annika unit, Christian had to fight all night. Tim to heart rate. You should be extremely proud. wanted to make your unit Christian you need to be able to rebound the basketball they did River Rouge want to turn them around they did it and a game like this comes down to a Laker in minutes River Rouge had a couple chances there at the end of regulation but no i would go and give credit to the christian unit for winning the division to tato sir you are waiting right now i tell you what the kids are warriors they fought a battle they were very comfortable in they stood up the pressure got to us a bit.
A little, but we fought to the end. You guys came out with intensity. They came out fiercely. They were dumping bodies. How can they pull this off? That has been our game. That is what we want to do. We played Benton Harbor a few weeks ago. About a week ago. We did the same with them face to face and our children are resilient. They just work hard. I am very proud of them. you told me today that blue towel has been through 22 games now three y'all got to the top by the time that blue towel washed up now yeah it's time to rest baby that's what it's all about though it's time to rest for the towel.
Congratulations Coach, enjoy it, I bet I'll thank you again. How about that? 37 years ago, June 27, there's a head coach there in the Hudsonville unit. Well deserved Christian was a great effort tonight and on the other hand a great effort from the River Rouge Panthers also 14 state titles in the history of their program, the first now for UC to recap the state finals winners of MHSA Division four Luka was a beautiful Christian who beat Frankfort 6339 his fifth title in the last eight division 1 seasons this afternoon nip Salani We talked about Lincoln during our broadcast defeating a young Jesuit 64-62 a great game the first state title in the school history and me and tim around the call up for division threepoor huge flop able to beat Iron Mountain 53-52 an amazing finish there first title in Halawa Westphalia school history and then tonight head coach Scott's blue city suits mother and Hudsonville unit Christian fifty-five we'll end it with the premiere at the Breslin Center
