The Big Reds to open basketball season Friday after long wait

MUSKEGON, Mich --  The Muskegon boys basketball team has not played a game this season, that will  change Friday when the Big Reds play at Rockford.

Muskegon starts late by design, the football team has played in the state championship game 6 of the last 7 seasons and many of those guys are expected to contribute to the hoops team as well.

The Big Reds also have several new faces this winter adding a few transfers to the team, but they say the team is coming together nicely.

Muskegon plays its first home game next Tuesday against Grand Haven,
