The girls’ high school basketball season is underway and it’s time to mark your schedule for the best games around Metro Detroit this winter.
The following 10 games are listed by date.
Chicago Whitney Young (IL) in Detroit Edison
Dec 3 2021 at 7 p.m.
What do you get when you face one of the best teams in Michigan against one of the best teams in Illinois to open the season? A great game.
Detroit Edison vs. South Bend Washington (IN)
Dec 11 2021 at 8 p.m. @ Belleville HS
This is not only a great clash between two great teams, but also a clash between two of the best players in the country. Edison’s Ruby Whitehorn (Clemson) takes on Mila Reynolds (Maryland). Last year Washington was a finalist in Indiana State 3A.
Detroit Country Day at St. Clair Shores Lakeview
Dec 14 2021 at 7 p.m.
Country Day rebounded last season with a 15-3 record and they hope to build on that success against a Lakeview side that went 15-2 last winter.
Detroit Renaissance at the Wayne Memorial
Dec 15 2021 at 7 p.m.
These two teams have been the top of the state rankings for the past few years. Both graduated masterpieces but both also have plenty of young talents ready to flourish.
Grosse Pointe North in Macomb L’Anse Creuse North
Dec 17 2021 at 7 p.m.
This is a rematch between last year’s champion MAC Red (GPN) and last year’s champion MAC White (LCN). LCN won last year’s game and clashed with the Reds in an attempt to dethrone GPN.
Detroit Edison vs. Hudsonville
Dec 18 2021 at 8 p.m. @ Aquinas College
Hudsonville is the defending D1 champion and Edison is Edison. One of the best clashes in the state this season.
Clarkston in West Bloomfield
January 4, 2022 at 7 p.m.
They were the top two teams in OAA Red last year. West Bloomfield handed Clarkston two of their four losses a year ago, so Wolves will seek revenge.
Farmington Hills Mercy to Bloomfield Hills Marian
January 7, 2022 at 7 p.m.
It is always an entertaining game when these two rivals meet. Marian won two of three clashes last season, but it was Mercy who won the Catholic League tournament final against the Mustangs.
Detroit Edison in West Bloomfield
February 12, 2022 at 6 p.m.
Edison beat West Bloomfield twice last season, but West Bloomfield is bringing back major pieces from the squad from last year as they seek revenge.
Detroit Edison to East Grand Rapids
March 13, 2022 at 4 p.m.
East Grand Rapids are consistently one of the best teams in the state and any time the east side meets the west side it’s always an interesting game.
