PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth got a big lift from a freshman on Senior Night, and the Pilgrims earned a much-needed win over John Glenn 43-30 at The Rock Tuesday.

LAKEVILLE â€” LaVilleâ€™s boys basketball team took care of the outcome with a 23-2 game-opening run against Oregon-Davis Tuesday.

Buoyed by a revolving double team, the Lancers and foul trouble held Richie to 13 points â€” more than 25 points below his season average â€” and junior guard Jordyn Williams led four Lancers in double figures with 22 points as LaVille doubled up the Bobcats 80-40 at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
