Baldwin continues to rely heavily on depth

BALDWIN  — Depth continues to be a key asset for the Baldwin boys basketball team, and senior Demetrius Kane is confident that will continue to be the case for the next few weeks as the Panthers get ready for tournament action.

Kane has been among the key players coming off the bench for Baldwin and making key contributions.

Defense, rebounding and free-throw shooting will be key factors for his team to win critical games, Kane indicated.

“It’s getting better,” Kane said of his team’s free-throw shooting percentage. “We’ve been getting better (on overall play) since the beginning of the season.”

Now’s the time for the Panthers to be at their best, Kane said, while adding that depth is starting to become a key factor.

Baldwin had an 85-31 victory over Walkerville.

“Everybody got playing time and everybody tried to score,” Kane said.

They also defeated Onekama and Crossroads.

The Panthers are scheduled for have home games Thursday with Manistee Catholic and Saturday with Brethren.

The district starts Monday at Mason County Eastern. Baldwin opens Monday with Walkerville.
