Player Overview:

Mike Spain: After the game Mike Spain couldn’t be any prouder of he’s team and great work ethic on the court tonight. During an interview Mike Spain said,” I thought the offense played well, we ran it very well, we didn’t hit our shots as well tonight considering it was our first game of the season.” We will be working on our shot selection for the next couple of weeks, to say the least our defense couldn’t have been any better tonight on the court though, we had taken a lot of charges. “” If we can keep up the defense and work on the offense we have a very successful season ahead of us and I’m very excited to see what this team can do this year”, said Mike.

The wolverines take down there first competitive home game against Northview Highschool with a 14-point lead, the wolverines are looking good this year and are ready for more to come!!!
