La Porte and Michigan City both Get Wins During Basketball Double Header

(Michigan City, IN) - It was a Girls and Boys double header last night as La Porte and Michigan City Basketball teams faced off.


It was ladies first with the early game, where the Lady Slicers racked up their biggest point total of the year, in a 64 to 42 victory over the Lady Wolves.  La Porte’s Ryan Ott led scoring with 23 points. 


The Boys didn't fare quite as well, losing to Michigan City 96 to 68.  According 96.7 The Eagles Play by Play Announcer, Chip Jones, the quickness and lights out shooting of Michigan City were too much for the Slicers.  “Michigan City is good.  They’re 9 and 2.  Their strength is our weakness and there's just not much you can do about it.  And then, you add in them shooting lights out like they did.  They had 3 quarters of 20 plus points.  Not much you can do with a hot team like that”, Jones said.


The Boys are back in action this afternoon, hosting Warsaw.  That game will be broadcast live on 96.7 The Eagle and at the Listen Now link at HometownNewsNow.com, beginning at 1:15 p.m.
