How much is silver going for these days?

The latest figure is $17.41 an ounce.

Guess who captured the Silver market in the Macomb Area Conference on Thursday?

With their 54-45 road win at Madison, coach Andrew Houghton’s girls basketball team from Roseville clinched the MAC Silver Division championship.

The win puts Roseville at 8-1 in the division, 10-5 overall. Warren Woods-Tower, which took on St. Clair Thursday, was 6-3 heading into that game.

Each MAC Silver team plays 10 division games.

“Winning the Silver was our goal,” said Houghton. “It’s been seven years since Roseville won a league championship.”

Senior Nija Collier led the victors with 16 points and 16 rebounds. This is her seventh game back from a knee injury suffered during last year’s state tournament and the Panthers have not lost since her return.

Junior Madelyn LaGassa scored 14, and Chantae’ Parker, a senior, had 12 points against Madison.

“We had a rough December,” said Houghton. “Nija wasn’t back yet and we lost to teams like Dakota, Fraser and Anchor Bay. But I knew playing those kinds of teams would help us later on.

“Before the game today, I told the girls it could be a special night,” continued the Roseville coach.

Judging from the volume of noise coming from the locker room at Madison following the victory, it was a very special night indeed for the Panthers.

This is Roseville’s first season competing in the Silver Division. They finished in the middle of the pack in the MAC Gold last year.

Madison was paced by Alexus Pack. A junior, she finished with 15 points.

“Number 15 (Pack) was killing us,” said Houghton.

Pack took the ball to the hole with gusto on numerous occasions. She pulled up and shot the ball well, too.

Michelle Vaughn, a junior point guard, finished with 13 points for the Eagles. Senior power forward Kelsey Williams scored 11.

“I thought we played well. We competed hard, but we made too many mistakes. You cannot do that against a team as good as Roseville,” said coach Greg Raspberry.

His Eagles are 4-4 in the MAC Silver, 6-8 overall. They will take on Roseville on the road Monday. The following night, crosstown rival Lamphere visits.
