Big showing for MML, Tisdale, in first two tournaments of season

Posted: April 24, 2012 by Jared Field in High School

The U-17 Mid-Michigan Lakers are now 12-1 on the season after winning the tournament title at the Up North Challenge and a second place finish in the top bracket at the NCAA-certified Storm Classic in Grand Rapids.

The AAU basketball season could not have started off much better for the Mid-Michigan Lakers U-17 and lead guard JD Tisdale (Swartz Creek). The MML squad coached by Marcellus Miller (a GLH guy from way back) is 12-1 on the season with a championship at the Up North Challenge and a second place finish in the top bracket at the Storm Classic.

Here’s what high school basketball guru Steve Bell had to say about the grassroots group and its success, from Bankhoops.com:

It’s been an already amazing April for the Mid-Michigan Lakers. After winning the Up North Challenge the previous weekend in Mt. Pleasant, they made another championship game appearance despite losing Lucas. How are the Lakers this good? The easy answer is that, through years or AAU recruiting wars, they were able to hold onto 6-5 JD Tisdale. He was the most exciting prospect in the gym, the rare high school kid, like a skinny Denzel Valentine, who makes his teammates so much better. One college coach said Saturday night, he’s a three-point jumper away from the Big 10. With his current trajectory, the Swartz Creek junior will end up a top five prospect in 2013.
