Grand Haven Girls Basketball Team Finishes Perfect Season With Championship

Twitter

With a perfect season and the Class A championship on the line, Grand Haven girls basketball went to overtime on Saturday against top-ranked Grosse Pointe South.

The Grand Haven Buccaneers kept fighting, and shooting well, on their way to a second consecutive championship!

It’s been quite a run for Grand Haven.  A championship last year.  Now, a perfect season topped off with another championship at Saturday’s 60-54 overtime win!

The shooting percentage was lopsided, but the score wasn’t.  Grand Haven shot 75.9% and worked inside.  Grosse Pointe shot 26.9%, 16.7% from 3-point range.

WZZM talks about a key play at the end of regulation:

Grosse Pointe South had done all it could. It had erased Grand Haven’s 11-point lead to tie the game and had the ball with 45 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

It called for a back door play that had worked to perfection earlier in the game and resulted in a Cierra Rice lay-up.

But Grand Haven’s Hannah Wilkerson remembered the play, as well as everyone in Grand Haven.

Wilkerson broke up the play to force overtime and the extra four minutes belonged to Grand Haven, just like the Class A state championship trophy.

Grand Haven was West Michigan’s only representative in the state finals at Breslin Center in East Lansing on Saturday.

The boys state finals will be at Breslin Center on Saturday, March 23.
