On Saturday, Detroit Consortium College Prep, led by standout 6'8 sophomore Josh Jackson, defeated Pewamo-Westphalia, 61-44, for the Class C Michigan state title. An example from the game:
Full respect and congratulations to P-W coach Luke Pohl and his senior-led team on getting to Breslin Center, despite the disappointment of the loss,. I called their postseason games with Erik "Doc" Love for Big Country 92.1, and we won't soon forget their successes.
In a week's time:
1. We will know the 2014 Lansing Lugnuts Opening Day roster, likely to be headlined by D.J. Davis and Mitch Nay.
2. We will be mere days away from the eighth annual Crosstown Showdown, presented by Auto-Owners Insurance.
3. The Major League season will be officially underway on United States soil. (In case you missed it, the Dodgers took two games from the Diamondbacks in Australia over the weekend.)
4. We shall have ourselves a Final Four. (Everyone's favorite quartet of Florida / Michigan State / Arizona / Louisville still looks likely, but I'm rooting for more upsets.)
Lastly, consider this a public service.
