The Rochester Adams Boys’ Basketball team started districts off strong with a 52-38 victory over crosstown rival Stoney Creek High School on March 9.

“It was great to beat Stoney because it really showed that we are the best team in the city of Rochester,” said senior captain Jordan Wiley

After a three-point loss to Stoney Creek earlier in the season, the Adams team was under pressure to redeem itself. The team came out strong and was up by 21 points at halftime, however, Stoney Creek seniors refused to give up and managed to reduce the deficit to seven points. Despite their efforts, Stoney was still no match for the Highlanders. Junior Spencer Littleson led Adams with 27 points and ten rebounds.

“It was a great feeling to beat the self proclaimed ‘City Champs,’” said Littleson.

The team looks forward to playing Lake Orion at 5:30 tonight at Clarkston High School.
