The Lakeview boys’ basketball team rolled to a victory over host Loy Norrix on Tuesday night, this time without any of the drama that came in their previous matchup.
The Spartans earned a 61-43 victory over the host Knights in Southwestern Michigan Athletic Association East Division action, marking Lakeview’s fourth victory in a row.
In their prior meeting, Lakeview edged Loy Norrix with a two-point overtime victory.
“I think it’s a heckuva win,” said Lakeview head coach Steve Wichmann. “We feel like we’re playing better and getting better every day. We were up 17 at halftime, and methodically put it away in the second half. We took care of the ball, we passed the ball well. A good team game overall.”
Lakeview’s balanced attack was led by Devon Daniels with 17 points. Also for the Spartans (8-8, 7-5), Jake Love had 13 points and nine rebounds and Donnie Ernsberger had 15 points and eight rebounds.
Loy Norrix’s Bishop Robinson, who scored 30 points in the previous contest with the Spartans, was held to 11 points in three quarters of action.
