FERNDALE — It was a tough couple of days for the Ludington boys basketball team as the Orioles participated in the Motor City Roundball Classic in Redford Township.

The Orioles struggled offensively in both games. First it was against Ann Arbor Skyline in their opening game on Wednesday night.

After managing to cut a 20-point deficit down to 11 at one point in the fourth period, the Orioles finished with a 58-42 loss.

Ludington then faced Detroit Cass Tech on Thursday night and things did not improve any. In fact, they got worse as the Orioles trailed, 47-13 at the half and dropped a one-sided 74-29 decision to Cass Tech.

“Dylan Eaton sparked a little third quarter spurt for us by knocking down a couple 3’s,” Ludington head coach Thad Shank said. “But we just didn’t have any offensive flow.”

Peyton LaCombe led the Orioles with 12 points, Eaton scored seven and David Schillinger added six.

Cass Tech went to 4-0 for the season and had Darius Acuff lead all scorers with 19 points while Duane Wright contributed 11.

Ludington fell to 2-4 overall and doesn’t play now until Tuesday, Jan. 4 at home against Fremont.
