Feisty Flint Jaguars put up good fight but no match for Valley South favorite Flint Carman-Ainsworth

   FLINT (CCN) — Flint Carman-Ainsworth's first test against the Flint Jaguars in basketball was passed with flying colors Tuesday night in front of a packed house at Flint Southwestern Academy. The Cavaliers got their first look at the combined forces of Flint's Southwestern and Northwestern campuses with first place on the line in the Saginaw Valley League. They fought off a valiant effort by a nine-man roster trimmed down after disciplinary moves of new Coach Cory Hightower to win 61-48 in what some projected as a potential title game because of Hightower's high hopes for an immediate impact on Flint's high school hoops scene.

Flint fans expected to pack place at Southwestern Academy for first hoops showdown between new Jaguars, Flint Carman-Ainsworth

   FLINT (CCN) — A packed house is expected at Flint's Southwestern campus Tuesday night at 7 o'clock when the new Flint Jaguars face Flint Carman-Ainsworth for the first time. It's their only match-up this season in the Saginaw Valley League where many project new Coach Cory Hightower's Jaguars as one of the potential contenders to stop the Cavaliers from repeating as league champions. Coach Jay Witham's Cavs have already beaten one of the pre-season picks to make a run at knocking them off the throne when winning their Valley opener by a 64-52 breeze on Friday night over Saginaw Heritage. Tuesday night at home will be the Valley opener for the Jaguars who are making big strides fast under a leader who is adjusting to the coaching game after a career that included playing professionally overseas and in the minor leagues after Flint native Hightower was good enough coming out of college for the San Antonio Spurs to make him the 54th overall pick in the 2000 NBA draft.  Click Here to Read More
