Flint Powers will take on Okemos Tuesday night in Holiday Hoops finale

Posted: December 27, 2010 by Jared Field in High School

The showcase game of the 2010 Meijer Holiday Hoops Invitational will pit two of the state’s elite programs in their respective classes.

Flint Powers will take on Okemos and its all division one backcourt at 8 p.m. at the Breslin Center in East Lansing. Guards Mack McKearney and Chris Harrison-Docks have led the Chieftans to huge victories already this season over Lansing Eastern and Lansing Catholic.

Powers counters with senior wing Vince Adams, junior forward Javontae Hawkins and senior point guard Patrick Lucas-Perry.

If this game came down to a battle of the backcourts, I’d give the edge to Okemos. Fortunately for Powers, their supporting cast is probably a little stronger.

Prediction: Flint Powers 66, Okemos 63

BTW: If you can get there early, the first game (11 a.m.) might end up being the best. Lansing Catholic, among the top teams in class B, will take on arguably the state’s best team in class C — Detroit Consortium.

    I don’t feel so bad about that. Patrick Hayes made the same mistake last week. We are both living in the past!

    I really enjoyed LLP’s game in high school. So much so that I keep trying to bring him back.
