Warren Woods Tower and Chippewa Valley Game Recap

Clinton Township, MI -- After Roseville defeated Fraser in game one of the tournament, # 17  Chippewa Valley hosted # 25 Warren Woods Tower.  For Chippewa Valley it was their second game of the season.  The last game they played was two weeks ago, when they beat Anchor Bay.

Like the previous game, Chippewa Valley started off hot as they held Tower to only 3 attempted shots in the first 4 minutes and none went in.  The score was 5-0 after four minutes and Tower's coach called timeout.   Tower came back and scored a few more points but Chippewa Valley lead 13-7 at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter the score went back and forth but with two minutes left in the half, Chippewa lead 24-17.  After a last second shot by Tower the score was 28-25 Chippewa Valley at halftime.

In the third quarter Chippewa started off hot scoring right away and then after a turn over, # 33 on Chippewa Nick Gregory gave Chippewa momentum with a slam dunk giving Chippewa a 32-25 lead.  However with 3:36 left in the third quarter the score was 39-37 Chippewa.  The Bigs Reds closed out the half on a big run as they lead heading into the fourth quarter 50-44.  Tower hit a 3 pointer right before the buzzer for three points.

In the fourth quarter after four minutes the score was 55-52 Chippewa.  With 3 minutes left Tower was up 57-56.  After 30 seconds, Chippewa lead 58-57.   Tower then hit a 3 pointer by Ryan Newcom that made the score 60-58.  It was Newcom's third three pointer of the game.  With 8 seconds left Sam Bunkley, on Chippewa hit a three pointer to make the score 63-62.   Tower had a chance but Joe Bastone blocked a Tower shot and deflected the ball away to kill the remaining clock. Bunkley described the moment, "I actually didn't even realize it was the game winning shot until I was running back on defense and heard the buzzer sound and saw my teammates screaming and jumping on me. Honestly all I was thinking about when Nick gave me the pass was to make sure my form was straight and to not hesitate."

Bottom Line:

Nick Gregory - 17 points
