The Negaunee Miners Boys Basketball Team is ready to take their talents below the bridge into Troll Country.  With an impressive 70-45 victory last Wednesday over Ironwood, the Miners are once again quarterfinal bound.  With only one day left before the game, I swung by Lakeview Memorial Gymnasium to see how the players were preparing and interview the coaching staff.  While they rarely fail to show it on the court, the players’ athleticism was on full display as Zane Radloff, Tyler Jandron, & Jay Lori were dunking the ball consistently.  Along with teammates Eric Lori, Robert Loy, & Tyler Windahl, they all looked relaxed and ready to head downstate for the big game to get a win.

The Miners will face the East Jordan Red Devils (19-4-1) tonight in Petoskey at 7pm.  Join Jesse Anderson & myself as we’ll bring you an extended pregame filled with analysis, interviews, and recaps of both the boys & girls’ seasons.  Be sure to tune into 101.9 for all of your Negaunee Miners Boys Basketball action on SunnyFM!
