The Schoolcraft boys’ varsity basketball team has been rolling over opponents this season even though bad weather caused cancellations against Coloma and Watervliet. It has a record of 13-1. Hackett Catholic Central was able to hand the Eagles their only loss 56-72 back in December. Now 7-1 in the conference play, they beat Delton-Kellogg Jan. 31 convincingly 76-38 and Lawton by the same score on Feb. 1.
Three Eagles hit double digits in the win against the Panthers. Kobe Clark netted 18, followed by Ty Rykse with 16 and Bryce VanderWiere with 12. The Eagles were able to force 25 turnovers and out-rebounded the Panthers 54-31.
The Eagles will see Hackett again Feb. 5. They will host Kalamazoo Christian for homecoming and senior night on the 8th.
