LANSING TOWNSHIP- This weekend marks another exciting year of MHSAA boys’ basketball state finals. The heavy favorite in Class B is easily Lansing Sexton. Tomorrow, they take on Detroit Country Day at the Breslin Center, a game I hope to attend. Otherwise, this weekend will showcase some spectacular talent that we could see in the NBA down the road.
Mr. Basketball runner-up, senior Denzel Valentine of Lansing Sexton, is currently committed to Michigan State. Valentine – known for his excellent playmaking – has compiled a monster season this year, with 168 assists on the year. The second closest on the team? Eighty-one assists. So get used to hearing his name around Lansing, because he will be suiting up for the Spartans as soon as next year.
But for now, there’s no doubt he’s focused on leading his squad to a state title.
