The Eagles picked up a regional title with a 76-57 win Wednesday.

STERLING HEIGHTS — A comfortable halftime lead quickly became an insurmountable one for Southfield Christian in Wednesday’s Class D regional final.

Southfield Christian doubled its advantage from 14 to 28 points in the third quarter to dispatch Detroit Public Safety Academy 76-57, advancing to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2014.

Never trailing in the game, Southfield Christian receiving a game-high 21 points from junior Bryce Washington and a boost from the return of sophomore Harlond Beverly, who scored 20 points and had nine assists after being out of action of late.

“He brought a lot of play-making. He made a lot of great plays early on,” Eagles coach Josh Baker said of Beverly. “That’s a pretty nice return after not playing for almost a month.”

Three-point shooting and second chance opportunities from a strong game on the offensive boards helped Southfield Christian establish early success.

Just as it had in the first half, Southfield Christian began the second half on a 7-0 scoring run to effectively slam the door shut on Detroit PSA (14-6), which was limited to just six points in the third quarter, falling behind by as many as 28.

“I thought we kept the ball in front of us, which was the main goal. And we kept them off of the glass,” Baker said of his team’s defense.

“We knew they were down and that they might have to play fast and take quick (shots). We said if they take quick ones, then we can get run-outs and I thought we were able to do that. The other point was not taking tough shots. I thought we were taking easy shots and open threes in the third quarter.”

Sophomore Caleb Hunter added 17 points while seniors Trenton Temple and Brock Washington (12 rebounds) contributed seven points apiece. Josh Fergan added four more for Southfield Christian.

Up next, the Eagles will face Fowler in the quarterfinals, to be played Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Imlay City High School.

Southfield Christian lost regional final games competing in Class C each of the past two seasons following a string of 3-straight Class D championships from 2012-14.

“Tonight showed us some things we have to work on, but I do like where we’re at from a skill level and how hard our guys are playing,” Baker said. “We’re shooting it well and making plays.”

Detroit PSA was led offensively by Thomas Henderson’s 19 points and Darrion Lawson’s 14 points.
