Daniels scores 23 in victory over Stevenson

L’Anse Creuse North didn’t want to get left out of the MAC tournament.

Blake Daniels scored a season-high 23 points and had 12 rebounds Monday night to lead the Crusaders to a 62-47 MAC Red Division boys basketball victory over Stevenson that put LCN in the MAC tournament that starts later this week.

Dan Longo added 14 points and Jeremey Scott had eight rebounds and five assists as the Crusaders completed their Red schedule with a 4-6 record. They’ll face MAC White champion Ford in a tournament opener Thursday.

“We knew we had to win to get into the MAC tournament,” Longo, a senior guard, said after LCN improved to 8-7 overall. “We had everything to gain from this game.

“We played good defense the whole game.”

Stevenson knew before the contest that it was in the MAC tournament, but the Titans had a vastly different feel about their division finale that left them with records of 5-5 and 7-9.

“I’m disappointed and I’m embarrassed,” Titans coach Mark LaCombe said. “We didn’t play hard.

“The only thing I believe in is that the only option is to play hard, and we didn’t.”

Mavrick Gildyard led the Titans with 17 points.

Stevenson plays Warren-Mott to open the tournament Thursday.

The MAC held a boys tournament in 2000-01, but the event was discontinued after one year.

Jay Seletsky, the L’Anse Creuse North coach, was among those who wanted a tournament back on the conference schedule.

“There was extra motivation tonight,” Seletsky said. “Getting into the tournament was a focal point.

“That’s what February and March basketball is all about.”

The Crusaders wore “throwback” uniforms for the game.

The uniforms were purchased about a half-dozen years ago, and, Seletsky said, they’re brought out only for special occasions.

The Stevenson game was the first time the uniforms were worn this season.

“Maybe we’ll take them with us into the tournament,” Seletsky said with a smile.

Daniels, who wore No. 42 in the throwback uniform rather than his usual 21, made a three-point play to give L’Anse Creuse North a 37-25 lead with 4:22 left in the third quarter.

He scored on a put-back almost two minutes later for a 42-28 lead.

Benjamin Bultz’s 3-pointer just before the third-quarter buzzer pushed the LCN lead to 51-31, and the Crusaders coasted in the fourth.

Stevenson won the first game of the season between the teams.
