He hit three more three- pointers from the corner in the first quarter alone. Logan McGeowan was also hot early in the game, adding 8 points to the team’s first quarter total. The Wolverines jumped out to a 23-4 lead by the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Wolverines started passing the ball around more. Six different players scored in the second quarter, including Bryce Mileski, who hit a deep three-pointer. The team finished the first half with a 41-10 advantage over the Lions. When the third quarter began, the Lions got the ball rolling with Ian Spracklia hitting a wide-open three from the top of the key. Sprackila finished the quarter with five points and was the team’s leading scorer with 9 points. The Wolverines had the game well in hand by the end of the end of the third quarter, with a lead of 53-23 over the Lions. At the start of the fourth quarter, Coach Mileski gave the starting lineup a rest. Junior, Pharoah Curtis, led the Wolverines’ scoring in the fourth quarter with 8 points. He finished the night with 10 points. The Wolverines blew the doors off the Lions’ defense. They won 68-31. Griswold senior Logan McGeowan revealed after the game that the team celebrates every win at “Chilli’s”.
