Thursday Trump Of H.S. Hoops

Kudos out to the Bay City All Saints boys basketball team on their first league title in school history. This school has had many district, regional championships, even back to back state titles back in the mid 1970's. But never a league title?!! Well add that to their list of accomplishments. Of course now the focus is another victory to win the Greater Thumb West Title, and then onto a playoff run. Hard to believe we have not been able to cover the All Saints this year, where as last year we had them on numerous times.
Thumb Tailgater Sports returns with live high school boys basketball action this Friday with the GTE Title on the line for both Harbor Beach & Marlette. Coverage starts at 7:15pm!
Shake that head of yours to stop it from spinning from this long regular season of basketball because it is about to end in a couple days for girls followed next week by boys. But by then we are into the playoffs!

Wednesday Weave Of H.S. Basketball

Thumb Tailgater Sports will return to the webcast internet wireless waves this Friday night for high  school boys basketball. It will feature a GTE Title fight with the Harbor Beach Pirates at the Marlette Red Raiders.
Congrats to the Owen-Gage Lady Bulldogs on winning the NCTL North Title. They do share that title with the Port Hope Lady Bluestars, who were not expected to repeat as champions by most in the sports local media. That is quite a compliment to their new head coach of this year, Marilee Schock.
Last night the Reese Lady Rockets did what many teams could not do for most of this season - Take down the formerly undefeated Sandusky Lady Redskins. The quick and smothering full court pressure defense of the Lady Rockets blasted Sandusky throughout the whole game. Sandusky did tie it a couple times in the 1st quarter, but Reese attacked right back with their smart offensive play and never lost the lead from the 2nd quarter on to the end of the game. Reese take back their crown and reign this year as the "Queens" of the Greater Thumb Conference.
Tonight could be history in the making in boys basketball with the Bay City All Saint Cougars (8-1, 13-3). They are on the verge of becoming Greater Thumb West Champions for the first time and need just one more victory to do so. But it is a gauntlet for the All Saints to get there, starting tonight against the Unionville-Sebewaing Patriots (5-4, 9-7). In the last meeting the Cougars escaped with a 66-65 win. They then have games with EPBP Lakers, and Vassar in league play.

Friday Full Blast Of H.S. Girls & Boys Basketball - Live Game Webcast

Thumb Tailgater Sports has live Friday night high school girls & boys basketball action. We get back to the BWAC with the Capac Chiefs at the Imlay City Spartans. Coverage starts at 5:45pm.
Capac Lady Chiefs (7-4, 9-8) have an outside chance of getting a cut of the BWAC title with some help from others in the league. But the Imlay City Lady Spartans (6-5, 11-6) will not make it easy. Imlay City may be out of the hunt, but would not mind playing the spoiler tonight against the Lady Chiefs. Leading the BWAC girls standings is the Algonac Lady Muskrats (9-2, 14-3) who needs just one more league win to grab a leading share of the title. With the winless Almont still on Algonac's schedule that is likely to happen.
In BWAC Boys league: Imlay City Spartans (8-2, 13-2) sit on top at first place tied with the Yale Bulldogs (8-2, 14-2) who are off tonight.
The Capac Chiefs (6-3, 8-6) suffered a one point loss to Algonac on Tuesday to go down tied at second place with Richmond. A Capac win can get them back in the quest for the title, a loss could take them out. For Imlay City they would like to avenge their earlier league loss to the Chiefs by a buzzer beater winning basket. Regardless this BWAC boys title claim is far from over. This live game coverage will be followed by the girls game.
Other notes on Last night: Congratulations to the Carsonville-Port Sanilac Tigers on earning the outright NCTL South Boys  Championship with their win over Memphis last night.
- To the Sandusky Lady Redskins on winning the GTE Title; and to the Reese Lady Rockets on their third straight GTW Title.

Thursday Tussle Of H.S. Basketball - Live Game Webcast

February Fever continues on the Thumb Tailgater Sports coverage of thumb area basketball teams. Tonight we present a live internet streaming audio webcast of boys basketball action with the Memphis Yellowjackets at the Carsonville-Port Sanilac Tigers. Memphis need a must win for any hopes of a share of the NCTL South Title. The Tigers already have a share, but with a victory tonight they will have the championship outright.
NCTL North Boys: The Akron-Fairgrove Vikings have pulled off some good wins that now puts them in the hunt for the title. They have to win out and also need North Huron to lose at least one of their next league games to grab the championship. If they both win out - both teams share the title. **Now what I just posted there is what I "believe" is supposed to happen, based on the revised league rules in the NCTL which have been misunderstood by many.

Wednesday Hoops - Wrestling Team Regionals

Thumb Tailgater Sports will be back with a couple more live game webcasts this week. This Thursday we venture back to the NCTL South in boys basketball action with the Memphis Yellowjackets at the CPS Tigers. With three league games left on their schedule, CPS has to just win one more to capture the league title outright. CPS also suffered their first loss of the season to the Sandusky Redskins on Tuesday.
Then on Friday night it is a doubleheader night of BWAC girls & boys basketball action with the Capac Chiefs at the Imlay City Spartans. The BWAC is "wacky"; especially in boys as there is still a tight race for the league title with four teams all having legitimate claim till seasons end.
Last night the Memphis Lady Yellowjackets won the NCTL South Championship with the win over Deckerville. In the NCTL North; I am pretty sure, but I believe Port Hope Lady Bluestars has to win their remaining league games and they take the title.
Over in the Greater Thumb East; the Brown City Lady Greendevils made things interesting as they avenged an earlier season lost to Marlette. Both teams now have two league losses and now need to help each other if they both want a piece of the GTE title. They both need wins over the still undefeated Sandusky Lady Redskins. In the Greater Thumb West; the Reese Lady Rockets have a the championship if they take wins over Bad Axe & Unionville-Sebewaing.
Wrestling Team Regionals take place today. Some Thumb Tailgater coverage area teams still in the mix.
