The Flint Metro League has always been a bit of a wasteland for subpar class A schools. If you can’t hack it in a regular conference, then move to the Metro like Swartz Creek, Clio and Kearsley [and for heaven’s sake don’t let competitive teams like Grand Blanc and Davison follow].
What develops is some of the worst basketball you can imagine. Point guards that look down when they dribble, undersized posts, and disastrous open court situations. I’ve often been to Metro games, asking myself could this really be A basketball? This is the way it has always seemed: subtract any team’s best player, and you may as well be watching a team from the GAC or class D.
