Three Haslett senior guards — 6-1 Blake Lampman, 6-1 Mitchell Mowid and 5-11 Ty Andrades — out-scored Fowlerville themselves Friday, and none played the fourth quarter of Haslett’s 81-49 win.
Ty Andrades 5-11 Sr Haslett: He didn’t play the first quarter, either, but made up for lost time, making his first three three-point attempts en route to a 10-point second quarter. He played well off of Haslett’s other guards, who knew his sweet spots and where to find him. Quick without the ball, and a quick shot release. Played a similar role to what he did for the Champ Sports team that was one of the state’s top five AAU squads last summer — instant offense off the bench. Andrades finished with 16 points He’s a solid one-on-one defender, but tended to freelance and gamble too much in run-and-jump situations.
Blake Lampman 6-1 Sr Haslett: It must have seemed like at least a couple Lampmans — Lampmen? — were out there, from Fowlerville’s perspective. He covered a lot of space with his wingspan and anticipated well defensively, and if he wasn’t swooping in for layups, he was lining up for 3s or making the extra pass so a teammate could do the same. His presence was all over the court early, scoring 14 of his 21 points in the first quarter. Played at a quick tempo, and it all starts with Haslett’s defensive pressure. Fit in perfectly in what they wanted to do. Lampman plays heads up and makes good decisions with the ball, but in the half-court isn’t the type of point guard to break you down and get all the way to the cup. When he was around the basket, could be knocked off target a bit. Interesting point guard prospect with upside; on pure athleticism is scholarship-caliber.
Mitchell Mowid 6-1 Sr Haslett: He’s in perpetual motion in the half-court offense, working to find his spots and able to score if from the blocks, mid-range turnarounds, or three-pointers. He scored 16 points on 5-of-7 field goals and 4-for-4 free throws. Like Lampman, worked hard on the defensive end and got the offense going with “pick six” steals. Made steady, good decisions with the ball. His college prospects may be limited by his ability to separate, and more wing guard than point guard at a stocky 6-1.
