Renaissance advances to Class A girls’ basketball state semifinals; Southeastern, Cody meet today in Class A boys’ regional

Pershing High’s girls’ basketball team ended the season with an outstanding 21-2 record.
Unfortunately for Coach Shawn Hill’s Doughgirls, their first loss was last month against Renaissance in the Detroit Public School League championship game and their second was Tuesday night in the Class A quarterfinals at the University of Detroit Mercy.
Pershing’s 78-73 loss to Inkster dashed the possibility of an All-PSL matchup for the state championship. But the league WILL be represented in the final four.
Three-time PSL champion Renaissance made sure of that with a 49-37 quarterfinal victory against Warren Regina to advance into Friday’s semifinals at Michigan State University’s Breslin Center. Coach Diane Jones’ Lady Phoenix (21-3) will play undefeated Grand Haven (26-0) at 1 p.m., and Canton (24-2) faces Inkster (23-2) at 2:50 p.m., with the winners colliding at noon Saturday for the state title. Renaissance is back in the final four after losing last year’s state championship game to East Lansing.
In the boys’ Class A tournament, Southeastern and Cody will play for the regional championship today at 6 p.m. at Cass Tech High School. The game is a rematch of the PSL title game Feb. 18 won by Southeastern 52-50. Today’s winner advances into next week’s Class A state quarterfinals.
