SWARTZ CREEK, Michigan — Jeremy Trent had a choice to make Tuesday night. Coming off a big win over previously unbeaten Fenton on Friday night, Swartz Creek’s head coach could have played Metro League ball with Flint Powers, one of the top teams in the state. He could have slowed the game down, sat back in a lazy man’s zone, lost by 15 called it a night.
Clearly Trent scheduled Powers to prepare his team for the rest of the season, and he didn’t change a thing about the way his team plays. The Dragons fell to Powers 92-69, but don’t be fooled by the score — this was a competitive game. Powers led by four at the half and actually trailed by six with four minutes left in the third quarter before the floodgates opened.
