The final week of regular season action continued today, as teams hit the hardwood to try and build some momentum heading into the districts starting next Monday.
South Christian 58 Wayland Union 42
Thirteen in a row. The Sailors continue their tremendous run of consecutive wins with a home victory over rival Wayland Union. At 16-3 overall and 10-1 in the OK Gold, South Christian has now clinched the outright league championship. They wrap up the regular season Friday on the road against Forest Hills Eastern.
Wyoming 71 East Grand Rapids 49
Lowell 61 Cedar Springs 41
Belding 67 Wyoming Lee 57 (OT)
Grandville 73 East Kentwood 53

The Huskies, ranked #1 in the Remax-United Power Poll, improved to 19-0 on the year and clinched at least a share of the OK White title with a dominating road victory over rival Forest Hills Central.

Allendale 56 West Catholic 28
Holland Christian 67 Holland 37
Grand Rapids Catholic Central 73 Sparta 26
Hudsonville 49 Rockford 43
The Eagles took their ten-game winning streak on the road Tuesday night for an OK Red showdown against Rockford. The Rams offense scored a bunch early in a 16-11 first quarter edge. Things slowed down after that however, and the baskets came at a premium. Jack Joldersma scored 12 of his sixteen points in the final quarter for Hudsonville, and those key shots made the difference. Ashton Pokorzynski led Rockford with 14 points in the defeat.
Muskegon 77 Mona Shores 43
Calvin Christian 76 Kelloggsville 40
Coopersville 59 Comstock Park 56
Zeeland East 50 Covenant Christian 48
Grand Haven 56 Caledonia 51
In the final home game of the season for Caledonia, they went back and forth with the Buccaneers all night long. After falling behind early, Caledonia rallied to tie the game heading into halftime. The second half saw the Scots start out with a lead, only for Grand Haven to storm back and lead by as many as sixteen points. Resilient to the end, the Scots got two late baskets by Zach Tuori and Koby VanderWoude to pull within three points. Ultimately, the comeback effort fell a bit short, and Grand Haven picks up their seventh OK Red win of the year.
Unity Christian 70 Zeeland West 57
Jenison 56 Fruitport 30
Grand Rapids Union 68 Kenowa Hills 35
Grand Rapids Christian 50 Forest Hills Eastern 49
