Lansing Waverly head coach Craig Fields has seen some pretty good guards, but on Friday night, he witnessed something he never had seen before, and yes that includes former NBA draft pick Marcus Taylor. As Waverly took to the road to face CAAC Red opposition Haslett, one player wanted to etch out a night to remember.

In a battle for top-dog in the CAAC Blue, the East Lansing boy's basketball team defeated Holt, 70-66, at home on Friday night. East Lansing star forward Brandon Johns was poked in the eye in the second quarter, but battled back to deliver a performance for the ages in the second half. Johns finished with a game-high 33 points (26 in the second half), 11 rebounds (now over 500 mark for career), six blocks, and four steals to lead the Trojans to victory. Steve Finamore's team now leads the conference at an undefeated 8-0, 5-0 record.
