Ludington’s Joshua Laman couldn’t have picked a better time to drill his first 3-pointer of the 2016-17 season. 

Today’s #MHSAAMoments highlight relives a shot we said the Orioles, and River Rouge, likely would never forget. 

On March 24, 2017, Laman made his first 3-pointer that winter to send Ludington – playing in its first Semifinal in this sport since 1971 – to its first MHSAA boys basketball championship game since 1953 with a 51-50 win over the Panthers.

Ludington coach Thad Shank after: “He’s thinking that when I get back in that locker room, he’s going to look Coach Shank in the eye and say, ‘Told you coach I should be shooting these 3s all year long.’ I know that’s what he’s thinking.”
