Tri-Unity Christian Breslin bound for ninth time in 17 years

CHARLOTTE, Mich. -- Tri-Unity Christian got off to a hot start in the opening quarter, leading 17-8 after eight minutes of play. In the second quarter, the Defenders locked down defensively, holding Bellevue to just three points to lead 31-11 at half. Tri-Unity Christian would advance to the state semifinals with a 62-31 win, getting 18 points out of senior Bennett Singer.

"Oh it's incredible," Singer smiled. "Ever since I was a little kid, I was shooting in the backyard, and I was shooting at the Breslin Center and shooting for a state championship, so to have this opportunity is incredible."

Defenders head coach Mark Keeler also notched his 599th career victory with the win.

"Every year is different," Keeler said. "It's a new group of boys, but they're all excited, and they're going to go home and dream about playing there."

Tri-Unity will face 20-5 Frankfort at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday night at the Breslin Center.
