Bloomfield Marian vs. Southfield Lathrup: Game Preview
Tuesday, March 10 at 5:30pm
Southfield High School
In a perfect basketball world this matchup would be the ultimate state championship game. However, this is not a perfect world, so we have to see this great match up a little early. This game is perhaps one of, if not the most, highly anticipated game of the year. The defending state champs Bloomfield Marian are looking to hold on to their crown and claim back to back championships. Southfield Lathrup also has plans, and that’s to bring the 2015 title from Lansing to Southfield. Both teams hold a well-earned regular season record of 19-1, are well coached and evenly matched in every position with some of the state’s top players. The winner of this game could potentially be the Class A state champ.
Keys To Victory
Prediction: After multiple lead changes, ties and crowd cheers, the relentless defense and consistent free throw shooting of Lady Mustangs of Marian will give them the edge they need to advance to the next round.
Final Score: Marian 55 Lathrup 51
