Head coach Gary Bennett knew playing top-ranked Detroit Country Day would benefit his Grosse Pointe North girls’ basketball team as it prepares for the state playoffs.

The host Norsemen lost 71-31 to finish the regular season 10-10, but playing such tough competition makes the players better in the long run.

The Norsemen fell behind 31-13 at the half and the Yellowjackets used a 22-point third quarter to put the game out of reach. It was 53-20 heading into the fourth quarter.

For the home team, sophomore Julia Ayrault had 10 points and nine rebounds, while junior Josie Ciaravino had eight points.

Next for Grosse Pointe North is a possible spot in a Class A district championship game at 6 p.m. Friday, March 3, at Roseville.

Senior Sayanna Roy scored 17 points as the Blue Devils fi nished the season 5-16 overall.
