FRUITPORT — Freshman Bradley Richards scored all 16 of his points in the second half, helping Fruitport Calvary Christian’s varsity boys basketball team overcome a seven-point halftime deficit and defeat Saugatuck on Thursday, 54-48.
With the win, the Eagles finish the regular season at 15-5, one of the best records in program history.
“We discussed at halftime how we wanted to approach the game mentally and physically and the boys really showed tremendous strength of character in the third quarter tonight,” said Calvary Coach Brad Richards. “These seniors have made their mark at this school on boys basketball and now they are looking forward to competing next week. They aren’t afraid of anyone.”
Calvary made 8-of-10 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.
Aside from Richards second-half production, Luke Assaad scored a career-high 14 points, and Nick Swanson added 11.
The Eagles will host Hudsonville Libertas in the Division 4 districts on Wednesday.
