Slicers Wolves in Sectional Match

(La Porte, IN) - The LaPorte Slicers are preparing for Michigan City Wolves in the high school boys’ basketball sectionals. Michigan City beat La Porte last month in a very close game.


Chip Jones, the radio announcer for the Slicers, feels the Slicers (11-11) have a chance against the Wolves (15-8) despite some recent struggles.


Jones believes La Porte needs to limit turnovers and handle the pressure defense from the speedy Wolves. The Slicers also need to keep the Wolves from having too many open shots and take advantage of their size.


“Michigan City is not real big, so the game sets up pretty well for Grant Ott-Large and some of our big guys,” Jones said.

Another key is not letting Michigan City score too many points in transition.


“It should be interesting. It’s sort of a clash of styles. La Porte likes to run a little bit, but they like to play a little slower. Michigan City likes to up the tempo and force the action,” Jones said.

Chip said La Porte should be helped by some players nursing injuries getting back to full strength.


The sectional match-up is at Plymouth on Friday at 5 p.m.
