GIRLS BASKETBALL: Handful of state's top teams meet for pair of preseason scrimmages
Just a quick update on the 2013 Michigan Mega Scrimmage to be held at Grosse Pointe South High School on Saturday, using the three gymnasiums (main, auxiliary and fieldhouse) available at the site. There will be at least five Oakland County schools — Birmingham Marian, Oak Park, Farmington Hills Mercy, Farmington Hills Harrison and Birmingham Detroit Country Day — in attendance, along with state powerhouses like host GP South, St. Ignace, Detroit King, Detroit Renaissance, Ann Arbor Huron, Ypsi Arbor Prep and Utica Ford.
There is also a smaller, six-way scrimmage Friday evening at the Oakland Community College Auburn Hills campus, with Waterford Kettering, Bloomfield Hills, Rochester Adams, Stoney Creek, Berkley and Utica Eisenhower participating.
The girls basketball regular season opens Dec. 2.
