Ypsilanti Lincoln improved to 3-0 overall by working around Ann Arbor Huron's full-court game.
"Huron runs a full-court press," Lincoln coach Rich Marion said. "Huron tied it with a three with a couple minutes left, but from there we settled down. We worked the ball around the press with good passing."
Ann Arbor Huron (0-1) jumped out to an 11-7 lead but Lincoln turned the tables with an 18-11 advantage in the second quarter.
"Huron jumped out on us pretty good. They had an 11-3 first-quarter lead at one point," Marion said. "Their pressure is so tough to duplicate in practice that we kind of had a deer in headlights look early. Once we got a feel for it we settled down."
