The team who put Ludington basketball back on the map. 

The 2016-17 Ludington boys basketball team achieved levels of success the generations of Oriole alumni had only dreamed, but never tasted.

Getting to the Class B state finals is what this year’s team did, and proved it belonged among the greatest teams in Ludington basketball history.

Saturday’s state final game brought sights Ludington fans will never forget. Though the Oriole team fell to a very talented New Haven squad, the game’s outcome was never a sure thing until the final buzzer sounded.
