After starting the season with back-to-back losses, the University Liggett boys’ basketball team beat Dearborn Henry Ford Academy 75-39 during a holiday tournament game played the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Head coach Sidney Johnson watched senior Connor Fannon nearly record a rare triple-double as he had 15 points, 11 rebounds and eight blocked shots.

Fellow seniors KeVaughn Jackson and Eric Ewing also scored double figures, netting 15 and 13 points, respectively, for the Knights.

In other recent games, Liggett traveled to Sterling Heights Parkway Christian last weekend and won 76-31.

Ewing had 19 points and Fannon recorded a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds.

The win evened Liggett’s record at 2-2 and put it at 1-0 in the Michigan Independent Athletic Conference.

Coming up for the Knights is a home game Friday, Jan. 11, against league foe Bloomfield Hills Roeper.
