January 10, 2013The Grosse Pointe North boys’ basketball team took a 12-day hiatus into its holiday tournament game Dec. 26 against Detroit Henry Ford in the opening game of the PSL Holiday Classic IV at Detroit Renaissance.
The rust was evident as the Norsemen lost by three points, 60-57, to Henry Ford, falling to 2-2 overall.
“We played terrible,” head coach Matt Lockhart said. “We couldn’t make a shot to save our lives. I don’t know why we played so bad. Maybe I didn’t have the guys ready to play.
“It’s over and now we can look forward to our league schedule. Unfortunately, we have another 12-day layoff until we play again. Not very good scheduling.”
North plays its Macomb Area Conference White Division opener Tuesday, Jan. 8, at Utica Ford.
Look for a much different and more focused Norsemen team, led by Taiwan Wiggins and Ricky Watson, who had 20 points.
