Cavs start fast in season finale

February 5, 2011

CULVER — Culver Community’s girls basketball team viewed its regular-season finale as a sectional contest.
If the Cavs bring the kind of swagger to the real deal that they brought to the pseudo-sectional, watch out.
Class 2A No. 6 Culver allowed just two points over the opening 14:21 — highlighted by a nearly 11-minute scoreless stretch — en route to a 45-22 Northern State Conference win over visiting John Glenn at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday.

February 5, 2011

The Falcons shot just 31 percent from the foul line and 20 percent from 3-point range, but kept afloat by a strong defensive effort, fought their way to a 41-31 Northern State Conference win over Culver Community at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday.

Plymouth’s Miller bursts onto MMA scene

February 1, 2011

PLYMOUTH — A mixed martial arts cage is hardly the place most people would describe as “an oasis”.
Being locked in a roughly 20-foot space with someone who wants to either beat or choke you unconscious or else wrench your joints out of socket hardly seems to fit the definition.
Nevertheless, that’s exactly how 19-year-old Plymouth native Ricky Miller described entering the cage for the first time, a 170-pound bout at the Century Center in South Bend December 11.
