Northville Boys Basketball wins in second round of KLAA Tournament

Mustangs Defeat Livonia Churchill 54-44

Tuesday night the Northville Mustangs faced the Livonia Churchill Chargers in round two of the KLAA Tournament Consolation Bracket.  The Mustangs scored two easy baskets at the outset of the game and Churchill never got any closer as Northville took a 54-44 decision.  Northville had a decided height advantage over the Chargers, and they used this to their advantage in the first quarter as the Mustangs first four field goals were scored in the paint.  By the end of the period Northville was 7-11 from the field with 5 assists, although Churchill’s hot shooting limited the Mustangs to only a 15-12 lead.  Northville scored 6 more baskets in the second quarter on 5 more assists to push their lead to 30-21 at the half. Andrew Meacham led the Northville effort with 14 points, while Stewart Henzi contributed 6 points and 3 rebounds.

            Northville pushed their lead to 36-22 in the early minutes of the second half before settling for a 41-31 lead at the end of the quarter.  The Mustangs took only 7 shots in the quarter and made 3 of them, two of which were assisted.  Through the first 24 minutes of action Northville had 12 assists on 15 made field goals, a sign of excellent ball movement.  The Mustangs led 48-35 at the 5:24 mark of the fourth period before settling on the final 10 point margin.  Meacham led Northville in scoring with 22 points, and Henzi contributed 12 points and 9 rebounds.  The Mustangs travel to Milford Friday February 22 in the third round of the consolation bracket.
