(La Porte County, IN) - The fifth-ranked high school basketball team in the nation from La Porte County won going away last night.
La Lumiere defeated Spire Academy at home 111 to 58.
The Lakers were up by only three points halfway through the second quarter, but they turned on the jets, and several slam dunks later, the game was basically over.
Head Coach Pat Holmes said the surge followed some adjustments on both sides of the court.
“When the ball moves, we have the ability to really make shots and, defensively, I thought us kind of switching off-ball screens and made it more difficult for them to get off clean shots,” Holmes said.
Guard Aden Holloway was the leading scorer for the Lakers with 26 points. J.J. Starling, committed to playing next season at the University of Notre Dame, added 18 points.
