Ferris leads after a quarter


State 4A boys' tournament games are notoriously physical. But the Ferris Saxons lead 12-9 after one quarter in their opener in one of the more physical games you'll see, no matter the venue.

The teams played almost seven minutes before a foul was called – an offensive push off in the post on DeAngelo Casto – and only two were called in the first quarter.

Kentwood has blocked four shots – Casto's first two were rejected by 6-8 270-pound freshman Josh Smith – but the Saxons were able to convert two into baskets.

Casto, after seeing those two rejections, decided to use his quickness against Smith and scored on a pretty post move and a dunk.
