Tomorrow is the start of 2020. It also means a tournament is coming soon that Muskegon head coach Keith Guy has became very familiar with. The eighth annual Muskegon Basketball Showcase, that will take place on January 4th, 2020.
When asked about hosting the showcase, Guy said “I love it…I want to be able to bring the best basketball to this area.” It’s safe to say that Guy has done that, with a schedule that has the day kicked off with Henry Ford taking on Oak Park, then Ypsilanti vs Detroit King and finally, the game most people will come to see, Muskegon vs Chicago Curie, who is the number one team currently in Illinois sitting at 11-0.
Last season, Muskegon fell to Chicago Curie by a score of 58-63. This time, the Big Reds are hoping to turn the tide with nine seniors on the roster that remember that game very well.
Guy said when asked about what it will take to win “We need to play our brand of basketball, take care of the basketball, rebound and play good solid defense.”
It will be a tough task for the Big Reds, knowing Curie is playing it’s twelfth game of the season already compared to this being Muskegon’s third game, but they are more than ready and confident to walk home winners.
