EAST LANSING - Riding the stellar play of Michigan State commit Draymond Green, Saginaw cruised to an easy 20 point win over the East Lansing Trojans to advance to the State Championship contest vs. Detroit Pershing.

Saginaw built up a lead of twenty points before the pesky Trojans of East Lansing rallied behind three three-pointers from Charlie Woods who finished with 16 for East Lansing.

Woods ignited a brief rally, nailing three pointers and rejecting a Green layup attempt to cut Saginaw's lead down to as few as 12. However the Saginaw Trojans added a three pointer just before halftime to build their lead back up to 15 at the half.

However, in the second half, Green imposed his will on the smaller but game Trojans scoring 18 of his 30 in the second half as Saginaw pulled away.

"Their pressure really got to us," said East Lansing Coach Doug Fleming. "We really need to be structured and they took us out of our structure."

"It's special to have a performance like this anywhere," said MSU bound Green. "But to come off a game like I had in the quarterfinals (against Clarkston), it's good to rebound and come back strong and get the victory like we did today."
