Friday night, the Boys Varsity Basketball team scored the final 7 points of the game to defeat Waterford Mott, 48-42. The road victory for the Eagles earned them a spot in the Lakes Valley Conference Tournament Championship game to be played next Thursday at Walled Lake Northern.
Lakeland's victory was directly a result of solid team defense. In its previous two games, Waterford Mott had scored 87 and 99 points; Lakeland held them to half of those totals.
In a game that was close throughout, including tied at 21 at halftime, it was Lakeland's mini-run at the end of the game that proved to be the difference. Down 42-41, the Eagles held the Corsairs scoreless the rest of the way while also finding a way to score 7 points.
