MARQUETTE, MI – 2/26/2015 – It’s an exciting time of year for high school athletes.  The regular season is winding down and teams are putting in their final plans for the playoffs.  Where some teams will be one and done, others have a good chance to make it deep into the playoffs and potentially make that trip over the bridge into troll country.  This is just a simple article to see which teams will play where and when for the playoffs!

Marquette Redettes vs. Traverse City Central

  • The undefeated Redettes look to continue their magical season as they welcome in a familiar foe to their gym.  The Redettes dominated TCC back on December 30th 60-17.  TCC is coming off of a bye and has had plenty of time to prepare for a potential revenge game.

Manistique Emeralds vs Negaunee Miners – 6pm on March 4th

  • At 7-3, the Negaunee Miners looked like they were going to push the Lady Hematites to a final showdown for the MPC Title in the last game of the season, but a seven game losing streak derailed the Miners conference hopes.  The Emeralds, however, failed to win a single conference game in 2014-2015.  The Miners dispatched them with ease, outscoring them 47 in the two games combined.

Gwinn ModelTowners vs. Ishpeming Hematites7:30pm on March 4th

  • This district is all MPC teams, and Gwinn has revenge on the mind.  After being swept by the Hematites in the regular season, once by 20+ points and again on a controversial buzzer beater being waved in Gwinn, Ellie Olsen & Co. will look to take Ishpeming’s MPC Championship season, and tear it down before their eyes.

Calumet Copper Kings vs. Ironwood Red Devils (3/2) – CAL: 63  IRON: 18


Negaunee Miners Girls VS Calumet Copper Kings on Sunny.FM. 02/10/15
The Lady Copper Kings have come from behind, dominated teams, and won back-and-forth games this year, and will look to win a district title while playing host!

Hancock Bulldogs @ Calumet Copper Kings7pm on March 4th

  • Calumet swept their conference rival during the regular season, winning in Hancock 43-37, then beating them handily on their home court 53-36.  Hancock can try to spoil the party on Calumet’s home court once again, as it’s tough for a team to beat another three times within a season.
