KENTWOOD — Talk about a wild finish. Look no further than the Fruitport Calvary Christian-Grand River Prep game on Tuesday night.
Grand River’s LJ Cambric scored on a putback with 15 seconds left to give the hosts a 65-64 lead. The Eagles came down and had a layup attempt that rimmed in and out and Grand River escaped with the victory.
It didn’t look anything like a game that would come down to the final seconds back in the opening quarter. Prep had a 34-9 lead in the first quarter. Over the next three quarters, Calvary battled and took a one-point lead with 30 seconds remaining before Cambric’s heroics.
“We told the boys at the end of the first quarter that the other team was on pace to set the MHSAA record for most points in a game ever in the history of high school basketball,” said Calvary coach Brad Richards. “Give our boys credit. They battled the rest of the game and almost pulled it off after not playing the first quarter.”
Quinn Swanson led Calvary with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Bradley Richards added 22 points and 15 rebounds. Sam Zelenka also hit double figures with 13 points and eight assists.
Camric had a career-high 19 points for Grand River Prep. Jadon Waddle and Julron Hardy had 17 points each
