Basketball weekend -- St. Peter's and MLS

This past weekend, we got our share of basketball games.  St. Peter's went to Michigan Lutheran Seminary for a co-ed team basketball tournament.  St. Peter's played well and won all of their games in their round robin tournament, playing teams from Warren (Crown of Life), Burton (Good Shepherd) and even Falls Church, VA (Grace).  Really, they came from Virginia!

Anyway, Philip had three good games.  And we also got to bring home some hardware.  Photos here:

We had hoped to watch Caleb's MLS Freshmen squad play at Millington, but Millington did not have a Freshmen team of their own, so we did not get to see Caleb play.  Our schedule has prohibited us from seeing most of his games, so this was a bummer.

On Friday night, the MLS varsity Cardinals took their undefeated schedule to take on #1 seeded Millington at the Millington gym.  To say it simply, it was not MLS' night.  Too many missed layups and short baskets; too many missed free throws, and rebounds which ended up in Millington's hands all night long ended up taking their toll.  Still, MLS lost only 72-67.  Millington would be quick to note that their leading scorer did not play, so both teams claimed that they could have done better.  Chances are, there will be a rematch come the playoffs, and that will be an interesting match up.

Andrew has had his share of blocks this year.  Here is another.
This was almost certainly called a foul that night.  [All ball]
