NOW: Benton Harbor and South Haven set for district title meeting; other scores

BERRIEN SPRINGS, Mich. - As boys basketball district tournaments continued, Berrien Springs was the site of perhaps the most anticipated rematch in Southwest Michigan.

A sellout crowd packed the gym to see Benton Harbor and Coloma face off once again, and it was a tight one for the first half.

Leading by seven at the break, Benton Harbor went on a tear in the second half to win 77-49 to earn a trip to the District Championship.

"They have a good team over there, but we know what we're capable of," said BH senior Shawn Hopkins. "Last game we didn't show it, but this game we really wanted it."

"We're all believers. God is good," said Tigers head coach Corey Sterling. "We got a team full of seniors, and seniors win games in games like this. Again, we're looking forward to riding this wave to the Breslin."

The Tigers will meet South Haven, who topped Buchanan 80-56 in game two of the night, on Friday for the title.
