EAST LANSING, Michigan — After failing in their question to win a state championship last season, the Maroon Giants are on a mission in 2010 to bring home the hardware.

On Friday afternoon, Kalamazoo Central took down Detroit Denby, 68-49, to advance to the state class A finals versus Ann Arbor Huron.

The Maroon Giants were led by junior TJ Buchanan, one of the best all-around players I’ve seen all season. Buchanan scored 24 points on 11 shots with six rebounds. Dayton-bound senior Devin Oliver added 17.

UM-recruit Isaiah Sykes scored 16 points with nine rebounds for Denby. Senior forward Derrick Barden scored 17 points with 10 rebounds.
