Tomsich then made a steal and the pass to Jacob Stone for a one handed dunk that broke the game open. Grand Ledge put Midland Dow on the line the rest of the way. Dow responded by not missing a single free throw in the last 2 minutes. Midland Dow defeated Grand Ledge by a final of 52-41.
Duvel Lewis (2019, 6’6”, F, Grand Ledge)
Lewis was a quick jumper which helped him be strong on the glass. He showed athleticism and the ability to finish at the rim through contact. He was described by coach/trainer Dell Johnson as “a beast.”
Jacob Stone (2019, F, Midland Dow)
Stone is a big kid who played with toughness. He was a solid defender and a force on the glass. Stone was able to run the floor well and hit three pointers.
Nick Serocki (2019, CG, Midland Dow)
The 6’1” combo guard showed some nice skills. He handled the ball well, controlled the pace, and made smart decisions with the ball.

The 5’11” shooting guard showed that he could be a force for the next couple years. He was great from behind the three point line, with a fundamentally sound and efficient shot. Tomsich was strong defensively where he forced turnovers. He was “showing point guard skills with pin point passes,” said Coach/Trainer Dell Johnson.
