Freshman Denzel Watts Readying For Showdown

Watts now must put his focus on Friday's game against Flint Powers where the BIG 9 title is up for grabs. Watts will be matched up against another Michigan State recruit in Patrick Lucas-Perry.

FLINT, MI - Denzel Watts has been told time and time to expect his freshman season on varsity to feel like a roller coaster ride.

Well, Watts isn't too fond of Cedar Point and decided that hard work will trump that so called roller coaster ride.

While the Carman-Ainsworth freshman has had his lumps this season, he has had more highs then lows. Tuesday night was one of those highs as the 6-foot point guard duplicated his season averages and threw a 14 point, five assists, five rebounds, and three steal effort at Flint Northwestern in the Cavs 79-67 win.

Northwestern won the Flint City series, but Carman, a suburban district, made their city of Flint sweep complete with the victory.

Watts made some big plays on both ends of the floor to lead his team to a 21-8 lead after one quarter was in the books.

Watts showed off his skills again at the end of the third quarter by running the final 30 seconds down before he cleared it out and attacked the basket to get a runner to fall.

Watts now must put his focus on Friday's game against Flint Powers where the BIG 9 title is up for grabs. Watts will be matched up against another Michigan State recruit in Patrick Lucas-Perry.

It will be the third time these teams have met this season. The first game Watts came up big and his Carman-Ainsworth team got the win. In the second meeting Powers ran away with the win.
