NAPPANEE â€” â€śJust like we drew it up,â€ť said a smiling Plymouth head coach Ryan Bales on his way out of the locker room.
John Ruff split a pair of defenders in the lane for the go-ahead layup with under 4 seconds to go, Mack Mercer altered NorthWood shooter Jonathan Wilkinsonâ€™s would-be game changer at the buzzer on the other end, and Plymouth stole a 53-52 Northern Lakes Conference opening win after trailing for more than 27 minutes in a come-from-behind thriller with a championship atmosphere at the Panther Pit Friday night.
LAKEVILLE â€”Â John Glenn worked out a little equation Friday night â€”Â Defense plus Josh Anderson equals win.
The visiting Falcons held LaVille scoreless from the field during an 11-minute stretch in the second half, and Anderson scored a game-high 20 points and grabbed six rebounds in a 52-39 Northern State Conference boys basketball win between future first-round Bi-County Tournament opponents at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
