This week’s show features Battle of the Fans IX champion Buchanan, presents Game Balls to Menominee basketball's Emma Anderson and recently-retired Grand Ledge baseball coach Pat O'Keefe, clarifies the high school wrestling takedown rule and looks back at the eight MHSAA Basketball Finals decided by buzzer beaters.
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."
