The Grosse Pointe South boys' basketball team prepared for the upcoming state playoffs with two tough non-league games last week.
The Blue Devils traveled to Macomb Dakota and lost 71-60 and returned home to fall 59-49 to Detroit Martin Luther King three nights later.
"These games are what we need to get ready for the tough districts we have," head coach Troy Glasser said. "I'm glad we get two good opponents because our district foes are tough, too."
Against the Cougars, the Blue Devils led 16-15 after the first quarter, but fell behind 33-28 at the half.
They played a good second half, but couldn't get over the hump down the stretch and lost by 11.
Senior Dan Dixon had 16 points and senior Charlie Warren added 13.
The host Blue Devils played a decent game against one of the Detroit Public School League's best teams, Martin Luther King.
The Crusaders outscored the Blue Devils 16-12 in the first quarter, 9-6 in the second and 22-16 in the third to build a 47-34 advantage.
The Blue Devils won the fourth quarter, but it was too little, too late.
Dixon had another double-double, colleting 20 points and 10 rebounds, while senior Josh Gray added 10 points and five rebounds.
Grosse Pointe South ended its regular season 15-5 overall.
