Torey Higgs of Vandercook Lake High School has signed to play basketball at Siena Heights University in Adrian. Higgs earned multiple varsity letters while at Vandy, and made huge contributions on the floor for the program. The Jayhawks finished their 2018-2019 campaign with an overall record of 11-10. Their season started hot however. Really hot. The team strung together a 6-1 record to open the year- with their only loss by a margin of a single bucket. Just one year ago the team only won a pair of games, going 2-19. Those days are long gone for Vandercook Lake’s varsity basketball team. This means a lot to the schools.

MHSAA Changes to Soccer, Basketball and More for 2019-2020

JTV Sports | May 10th, 2019 | Gabriel Schray Jackson, Michigan– The Michigan High School Athletic Association is tweaking the basketball playoff system following their May 5th and 6th meeting. Several changes are being made at the district level. Beginning with the 2019-20 school year, girls and boys basketball and soccer will employ a seeding process to place the top two teams in every District on opposite sides of that bracket, guaranteeing those two teams could not play each other before the District championship game. The district pairings will be set two weeks before the postseason begins. Teams not seeded first or second will be randomly placed in the district bracket. "The addition of seeding at the District level in basketball and soccer and multiple adjustments to the process used to select the playoff field for 11-player football were among the most notable actions taken by the Representative Council of the Michigan High School Athletic Association during its annual Spring Meeting, May 5-6 in Gaylord," said the beginning of the press release by the MHSAA.

MHSAA Changes to HS Football for 2020

JTV Sports | May 10th, 2019 | Gabriel Schray Jackson, Michigan– The Michigan High School Athletic Association is tweaking the high school football playoff system. Beginning in the fall of 2020, a team’s strength of schedule will be the main factor in whether a school is in or out of the 256-team playoff field. Schools will now be rewarded, even if they lose, for playing against a quality opponent. This format also will have predetermined divisions, meaning a school will no longer have to wait for the Sunday selection show following the games of Week 9 to know which division it will be in for the playoffs.  https://twitter.com/JTV_Sports/status/1126538501414096900 "The addition of seeding at the District level in basketball and soccer and multiple adjustments to the process used to select the playoff field for 11-player football were among the most notable actions taken by the Representative Council of the Michigan High School Athletic Association during its annual Spring Meeting, May 5-6 in Gaylord," said the beginning of the press release by the MHSAA.

5-1 Cougar’s Basketball Team Rolling

(File Photo Courtesy of Spring Arbor University) By, Gabriel Schray | JTV Sports | November 8th, 2018 Spring Arbor, Michigan-- The Spring Arbor University men’s basketball team is off to a hot start. They stand at 5-1 on the season, and are looking to pick up another win tonight against Alma and the Scotts. A win would mean a five game win streak for the Cougars. And a win against and MIAA school would also be an increase in momentum for SAU. The Cougars and Scotts haven’t played since 2014, when the Cougars won their first in what is now a 1-2 all-time series. The 2014 contest was a tight game, a final of 63-61, and it will likely be close again tonight. They lost by margins of five and two in their first two appearances, so tight endings have become a theme for the two. A win tonight would move the series to .500 as well. On Saturday, Paul Marandet became the 45th player in Spring Arbor University history to reach 1,000 career points in a 78-67 win over Ohio Christian University to close out the Trent Allen Memorial Classic. Marandet entered the contest needing just 11 points to…
