BALDWIN — Baldwin’s debut this season in West Michigan D League boys basketball action on Friday at Pentwater was not a successful one.

The Panthers fell to 0-2 with a 68-28 loss to Pentwater. Earlier in the week, Baldwin lost its season opener 70-48 to Chippewa Hills.

Bryce Masterman scored eight points, followed by DeMarko Williams with six points and Dexter Hossler and Darrion Hayter scored five points apiece for Baldwin while Andre Hobbs had three points.

“The effort was there from our guys,” Baldwin coach Bob Watkins said. “Again, we had a tremendous amount of turnovers. We had nine in the second and they had eight. Once they got the lead, we went to a man to try to make a difference. With our short numbers, I felt we ran out of gas.”

The Panthers have only dressed seven or eight players each game while waiting for a few others to become eligible next month.

Wednesday of this week, the Panthers were slated to have a home game against Marion, a first-year member of the league.

“We’ll be going over the film and looking at the stats to try to get them to work on individual development,” Watkins said.

Baldwin is home with Manistee Catholic on Friday.
