Kobe Bufkin led GR Christian with 14 points, Jared Lary added 11 points.

It felt real good today," Lary said after the game. "We had a shootaround before the game and that helps with my touch a lot, ouir coaches said catch and shoot, the simple things."

A lot of people have been able to see him, he's been hurt," Grand Rapids Christian head coach Eric Taylor said. "He steeped up and made some big plays."

Connor Dykema led the Sailors (2-4, 6-5) with 12 points.
