Boys’ Basketball

G-MU 54, Otselic Valley 35

COPES CORNERS – G-MU surged in the third period to take control of its game with Otselic Valley Friday night and earn its 13th win of the season.

Trailing the Vikings by a point entering the last quarter, G-MU inverted its zone moving three people across the top. OV failed to produce much consistency on offense, and the Raiders had five players score in a 20-8 period. Demario Reed scored seven points in the third quarter, and Chris Steckline had seven points off the bench in the second half as G-MU cruised.



“I hope this contributes to our confidence as we move into praictice before sectionals,” said G-MU coach Bill Hartman. “The kids passed it well and we had better movement offensively in the second half. Life is always easier when you’re able to do that.”

Eddie Ray Cotton scored 12 points to lead G-MU, and Reed added 11.

Jeff Pittsley scored 13 points to pace the Vikings.
