I n most games, you can feel the momentum shift, an unseen force controlling the results. But not this time. As Gladstone and Ishpeming traded baskets the outcome was unclear: The Braves would make a bucket and you could hear the Gladstone fans breathe a sigh of relief, surely that would turn the tides. Or a steal by Ishpeming would ignite the student section, certain they had just witnessed the game-changing play.
But momentum took the night off, and outside forces were nowhere to be found. Instead, there were just two teams playing basketball.
And that’s just fine for Gladstone because you don’t need anything else when you have Reece Castor.
