The Lansing Sexton Big Reds, fresh off one of the biggest victories in school history over Detroit Country Day, finished the deal on Saturday night in East Lansing.
Sexton rode another strong performance from big man Tyrin Wade to a 75-60 win over Muskegon Heights. Wade, who made his impact defensively on Friday night versus Ohio State-bound Amir Williams, led Sexton in scoring with 18 points and seven rebounds.
Denzel Valentine, a 6-4 junior MSU commitment, also turned in a solid performance with 17 points, six rebounds and three assists. His night was highlighted by a two-handed dunk in traffic at the end of the third quarter.
One major storyline in the game was the poor shooting of Heights’ star Deonte Hudson. The 6-4 senior guard scored 31 in the semis only to come back to earth in the final, shooting 5-for-25 from the field for 16 points.
