Northrop deals with layoff

The recent weather conditions, heavy on the snow and ice, wreaked havoc on boys basketball games at the end of the regular season across the region.

Snider only played 18 games this year, including none in the last 11 days before a 72-64 sectional loss to Northrop on Tuesday at Carroll.

It wasn't much better for the Bruins, who seemed a less fazed by a layoff after not playing since Feb. 22.

"That goodness we were able to practice all last week and came in here and got a win," Northrop sophomore Bryson Scott said. "It has been crazy."

Scott scored 24 points for the Bruins, who avenged an earlier 72-70 loss to the Panthers.

"That's what the role that my coaches have given me," said Scott, who made 10 of 17 from the field. "They always want to put the ball in my hands because they know I know finish."

Chris Cammack, after picking up his second foul in the first first quarter and going to the bench, had nine points and 12 rebounds in the second half.

"Chris is a great rebounder, and he is an unsung player of the team," Northrop coach Barak Coolman said. "He has really pushed himself to get stronger and get in shape, and it has paid off. We really missed him in the first half. He could have checked out, but he stayed engaged and got back in the second half and did what he was capable of doing. It was huge."
