What Happened: In a district semi-final contest against Mona Shores, the Grand Haven girls basketball team was easily able to handle the Sailors in front of their home crowd with a 51-24 win. This was one of the Buccaneers’ better performances of the year as both their electric offense and tough defense were on full display, confirmed by a 31-8 halftime lead. Junior Alli Keyser once again paced the Lady Bucs with 18 points, followed by senior Autumn Buikema with seven and junior Anna Strom with six.

They Said It: “I thought we played some of our best basketball,” Strom said. “We had ton of defensive intensity which in turn created [our] offense. It always helps when we shoot well but I thought we did what we needed to in order to win.”

Up Next: Grand Haven will square off against Muskegon on Friday at GHHS Fieldhouse. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
