Class B Championship Game Summary

Detroit Country Day vs. Haslett

Breslin Center







Detroit Country Day

















With any championship team, you expect to see the best players compete on an exceptionally high level on both ends of the court. To see several lead changes, players diving for loose balls, phenomenal plays and game changing shots. This Class B Championship game with the Detroit Country Day vs. Haslett gave fans all of these things and more. After a spectacular 30 point victory in the semi-finals vs. Goodrich, many were unsure if the young Country Day team had given all they had the day before; if they would be able to bring the same level of energy and play the very next day. 2017 guard Destiny Pitts gave the best performance of the weekend and was close to perfect, finishing with a game high 28 points. Haslett is an excellent team that executes well and applies the 1-3-1 defense aggressively and intelligently. Makenna Ott also had a great game against Benton Harbor on both ends of the court.

Country Day would hold a small lead the majority of the game up until the 2:47 mark, when Haslett cut the deficit down to one. 2017 center Tyler Bennett would knock down two critical free throws to put Country Day up 4 with 2:26 left in the game. Shortly after, Haslett’s senior guard Kenzie DeCook would knock down two free throws to cut the lead to 2.  After more Country Day free throws, DeCook made another game turning play and hit a huge layup with 1:27 left in the game. However, it would not be enough to spark her team. Haslett started to foul and Country Day made them pay going 12-14 from the free throw line, including 6-6 shooting from freshman guard Kaela Webb. The Lady Yellow Jackets bench would also be huge in this game. Reserves were able to come in and contribute key minutes. Hasslet’s bench was a non-factor, with only one substitution the entire second half. Country Day would hold and win the 2015 Class B State Championship.

Haslett found an answer for Pitts 28 point performance in the semi-finals, limiting her to 12 points and only 4 in the second half. Who they did not find an answer for is freshman guard Kaela Webb. This was her breakout game! Yes…a freshman had her breakout game on the biggest stage of high school basketball. Webb drove to the basket and finished around the rim and knocked down three point shots to help spread Haslett’s defense (20 points). She made great moves to create opportunities for her teammates to get open and score (5 assist). She played great defense and caused some turnovers and bad shots (4 steals). Webb was able to do all these things and keep her composure. Even while shooting her free throws at the end of the game, her confidence and focus was never disturbed. She never showed signs of frustration and never gave up. Her basketball IQ is far beyond her young years and she was the best player on the court in this game.
