Renaissance girls, Southeastern boys out to prove PSL’s best is good enough to win Class A state basketball titles

As this year’s Detroit Public School League boys’ and girls’ basketball champions, respectively, Southeastern High and Renaissance High both have a chance to add a state championship to their domain.
Fittingly, Coach George Ward’s Jungaleers and Coach Diane Jones’ Phoenix are the last PSL teams still alive in the Class A state tournament.
Renaissance (21-3) will try to cash in this weekend, beginning with Friday’s 1 p.m. semifinal matchup against unbeaten Grand Haven (26-0) at Michigan State University’s Breslin Center. In the other semifinal, Canton (24-2) faces Inkster (23-2) at 2:50 p.m., with the winners colliding at noon Saturday for the Class A girls’ state title. Renaissance made it to the state championship game last year but lost to East Lansing.
Southeastern advanced to the Class A boys’ state quarterfinals with a 43-40 regional championship victory Wednesday against Cody (20-4). The Jungaleers (21-3) will face Romulus (23-1) at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the quarterfinal game at the University of Detroit Mercy.
