One of the most entertaining Boys Basketball Finals of all time is the subject of this week’s 80s Finals Flashback series on 

The fourth game in our weekly summer series features a shootout for the 1988 Class D title between Northport and Beal City.  

Week of July 18 – Northport 80, Beal City 78 – 1988 Class D Boys Basketball Final Northport's Sander Scott scored 39 points, but it was teammate Dan Stowe's six-foot jumper with three seconds to play that sealed an 80-78 victory over Beal City in Class D. Scott connected on 15 of 24 shots, including four of eight 3-pointers, before fouling out with 2:52 left in the game. Beal City received balanced scoring from Todd Schafer (21 points), Jason Gottleber (17) and Tim Block (15).
