Kings Out-Shoot Houghton

Three-point shooting is usually not the first thing that enters the mind when it comes to discussing the Calumet Copper Kings. Instead, it’s their suffocating man-to-man defense, the All-U.P. caliber season Matt Ojala has been having or the overpowering low-post presence of Cooper Twardzik. So while it may not be an officially kept stat, Calumet

Girl’s BB Season Ends Against Houghton

Someone needed to step up. Literally anyone. That was Julie Filpus’ halftime message to her team after the Houghton Gremlins scored just 14 points and shot 4 of 21 as they trailed Calumet at the half.

Kings Mercy Escanaba

Standing outside his team’s locker room in a dimly-lit hallway, all Escanaba coach Matt Hughes could do was shake his head. The pink stat sheet in his hand said it all; No. 2 Calumet’s side of the paper was scribbled with numbers and timestamps of goals, and Escanaba’s was virtually empty. So the coach signed,
