Hazen boys lose barn burner
By Jarann Johnson
Hazen’s boys basketball team seemed poised to collect a blow out Region 7 win against Mott-Regent at home last week. Hazen was up 18 points in the second half and Mott-Regent’s go-to senior caption Tanner Zenter only scored two second-half points. But it wasn’t meant to be and Hazen fell 68-65.
Hazen seemed to have their offensive flow rolling near the end of the first half. Hazen swished two 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions to end the half. Hazen sophomore Garrett Ward came down and hit a 3-pointer, and Hazen senior guard Payton Leintz closed the half with a 3-pointer, putting Hazen up 41-30.
