Lansing Everett former four-star recruit Trevor Manuel has had quite the journey.  The 6-foot-9, 185-pound forward's journey first started at the University of Oregon where he stood for a year, but did not see much playing time. He transferred to Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles for his sophomore season, but still faced the same issue: no playing time.

LANSING - An hour before tipoff, the line stretched out the door and into the parking lot.            

Fans didn’t seem to mind the cool evening air as they waited patiently for a chance to watch Lansing Everett battle Kalamazoo Central for a Class A regional championship.

The gym filled long before tipoff with fans uncomfortably seated elbow-to-elbow. Those on time found refuge by sitting in aisle. And fans arriving 30 minutes before game time were forced to the standing room only section.

Trevor Manuel had 24 points as the No. 9-ranked Lansing Everett Vikings boy's basketball team posted a 75-52 victory over defending state champion and No. 2 Muskegon in front of a capacity crowd in a Class A quarterfinal at Eastern's Don Johnson Fieldhouse.

LANSING--- Lansing Everett’s gym echoes with the sound of sneakers squeaking across the hardwood. The energy level was high, matching a fresh team, not one at the end of a grinding regular season.

Forward Trevor Manuel sweated profusely as he raced up and down the court, barking out defensive assignments and swatting shots. Manuel was working hard, under the banner of Everett’s most famous alumni, Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

Manuel competes like an athlete fighting for minutes, rather than a star player for a team that already won its conference championship.

The Lansing Everett Vikings manage to remain undefeated in the CAAC Blue with a 61-56 win over the East Lansing Trojans.  Mikhail Myles lead the way for East Lansing, pouring in 21 points, while Trevor Manuel kept the Vikings afloat with 27 points.  Watch full game hilights here, shot by WKAR's Al Martin.
