The Huron High School girls basketball team led Dexter for most of the Game of the Week on Tuesday.

By the end of the 49-37 Huron win, it was hard to imagine a time in the game when the River Rats weren’t in control.

But when the second half began, Dexter only trailed by one and was able to take the lead twice, 25-24 and again 27-26. Micah Robinson took the lead back for Huron, and the way in which she did it helped make it for good.

Robinson first drove the lane and was fouled while making a layup. After completing the three-point play with a free throw and putting Huron up 29-27, she got a steal on Dexter’s next possession and scored in spectacular fashion.

Robinson faked a pass on the ensuing two-on-one after the steal and her defender bit hard. The gym was far from full, but responded with a loud collective “oh” as Robinson had a wide-open layup.

The play seemed to bring up the energy of the team the rest of the way.

“It was a great move, and Micah’s capable of doing that. It got the crowd into it,” Huron coach Steve Vinson said. “It was a great move by Micah. She had a great game today and I think that got her going.”

Robinson said she tries to block out the distractions, but admitted that after her fake-and-take, she could hear the crowd and her teammates.

“I can hear it a little bit, but I try to stay focused most of the time,” Robinson said.

Robinson finished with a game-high 13 points, one shy of her season-high.

Huron’s been a team where a handful of players can lead the team in scoring on any given night.

Robinson had the hot hand, but Vinson also thought the matchup might lead to that before the night began.

“I think she had a favorable matchup, and she’s probably our best one-on-one player in terms of getting to the basket, and creating on her own shot, so it’s a combination (feeding the hot hand and a good matchup),” Vinson said.
