This week’s show features Dundee wrestler Brandon Whitman, passes out Game Balls to Zach Goodline of Coloma in boys basketball and Taylor Long of Waldron in girls basketball, talks about basketball intentional fouls in the "Be The Referee" segment and closes with a perspective on college basketball games landing on Friday nights that should remain reserved for high school competition.
The 5-minute program, powered by MI Student Aid, leads off each week with feature stories from around the state from the MHSAA’s Second Half or network affiliates. "Be The Referee," a 60-second look at the fine art of officiating, comes in the middle of the show and is followed by a closing MHSAA "Perspective."
