Muskegon Boys Basketball Wins State Championship

Anand Soundarajan, ThinkStock

Muskegon boys basketball capped off a perfect season on Saturday with the Class A state championship!

Muskegon finished the year 28-0 with a 91-67 win over Bloomfield Hills.

Muskegon’s playoff run is even more impressive when you look at the final scores of the games. Most games were won by double-digit margins.

Saturday’s game against Bloomfield Hills made history for Muskegon. reports:

It’s [Muskegon’s] first MHSAA title in any sport other than football since the 1937 boys basketball team won the championship.

Muskegon finished 28-0, joining the 2003 Rockford team (also 28-0) as one of only two unbeaten Class A champions in the last 24 years. Only two other Class A teams have had 28-0 seasons: Flint Central in 1981 and Flint Northwestern in 1985.

“They’re good,” Bloomfield Hills coach Duane Graves said. “We knew they were good. You can’t go 28-0 and not be good. They have a good balanced attack. It had us on our heels all night.”

The team was lead by Mr. Basketball Deshaun Thrower. The senior had 21 points in 30 minutes played during the championship game.

Congratulations, Muskegon!
