Home sweet home.

After spending the past two seasons in Class C, and getting bounced in the regional finals by eventual champ Flint Beecher, the Southfield Christian boys basketball team is back at its home of Class D, where it is set to compete in Tuesday’s quarterfinals.

The Eagles won the Class D state championship from 2012-14 before moving to Class C, so they haven’t lost a Class D playoff game since 2011.

“I don’t know how much they have thought about (being back in Class D), but I know for sure that they really want to get back to the state championship,” head coach Josh Baker said. “It’s hard to come up short when you have a good team. Especially when you play the eventual champion so tough. So, I think the guys really were motivated this year and just want an opportunity to prove they are the best on that big stage.”

Standing in the Eagles way from a trip to the Breslin Center this weekend is Fowler. The two will meet up Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. from Imlay City.

The Eagles come from the Central Michigan Athletic Conference and have a 17-7 record entering the contest. They were able to beat Flint Academy 63-46 in the regional final last week behind 33 points from their 6-6 forward, Jeremy Pung.

“We have seen them a couple of times on film and they have some real size inside,” Baker said of Fowler. “They play very hard and tough. They are going to be tough to keep out of the paint. They have some big, strong kids. We are going to have to really work hard defensively and on rebounding to not let them control the game.”

Southfield Christian also has some size in regard to height, but Fowler is bringing a lot of mass to the court on Tuesday, which could cause matchup problems in the post.

The Eagles (20-5) have had their usual tough schedule throughout the season, so seeing bigger players on the opposition won’t be anything new.

“That’s why we play a really tough schedule, to be ready for these situations,” Baker said. “I think guys that have been in these types of situations before know what to expect, but each team reacts differently. We have had some tough wins and been tested recently, so we hope we can build from that.”

Fowler will have its hands full competing with Southfield Christian’s offense, which put up 76 points in its regional final win over Detroit Public Safety.

Baker also feel like his teams bench has gotten stronger as the season went along, citing an injury to sophomore Harlon Beverly as a catalyst to some other players stepping up.

“I really like our effort. Our guys have been really competing,” Baker said. “We were without Harlond Beverly for a month and we had to fill that role by committee. We were able to have three, four guys step up and play big minutes in big games. I think that really deepened our bench and has improved our team overall.”
