PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth point guard Houston Hodges played his best game of the season, but NorthWood won the game in the front court.
With 6-foot-8 leading scorer Sean Smith sidelined with a five-game suspension, Panthers big men Cameron Williams and Aaron Rhoade combined for 27 points, and NorthWood earned a 19-rebound advantage keeping Plymouth off the glass as the Panthers handed the Pilgrims a 47-38 Northern Lakes Conference-opening loss at The Rock Friday.
WALKERTON â€”Â John Glennâ€™s boys basketball squad flexed its muscle on both ends of the court Friday.
Defensively, the Falcons held LaVille to a 10-of-42 mark from the field â€”Â 2 of 18 from downtown â€”Â while on the other side of the timeline Glenn pounded the ball inside almost at will in a 55-32 Northern State Conference win at The Aerie.
â€śI think our strength took over tonight, and it should with our size and experience,â€ť Glenn head coach Travis Hannah said. â€śWe were able to take the ball to the hole.
BREMEN â€” The hosts managed a spilt in Friday nightâ€™s girls/boys doubleheader with Knox, as Bremenâ€™s girls blew out the visiting Redskins 65-47 and the boys fell 44-26.
In the girls contest, Bremenâ€™s Brittney Pittman had 26 points while going 8-of-11 from 3-point range. Lerin Studt (13 points) and Jenna Pfeiffer (11) also scored in double figures while Kailee Feldman finished with 9 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.
In the boys contest, Bremen had more fouls (16) than points (14) through three quarters and got no closer than 10 points after the first 5:29.
CULVER â€”Â If Jimtown is a brick wall, then Culverâ€™s Zoe Bauer was the bulldozer that broke through it.
The Cavaliers, led by Bauer, came from behind in the last minutes of the game to increase their Northern State Conference wins to two, with a W over the Jimmies, 41-33.
Jimtown came to Culver knowing they had to shut down the Cavsâ€™ four-year varsity player. And for the first three quarters, they did just that.
â€śI think we did a great job on Bauer,â€ť Jimtown head coach Randy DeShone said, â€śuntil the third quarter. Heâ€™s been around a while, and a kid like that is going to beat you.â€ť
