L'ANSE - L'Anse got a clutch effort, particularly from guard Daniel Perrow, to pull out a 65-59 overtime home win over Chassell Thursday.
Perrow scored 16 of his career-high 28 points from the fourth quarter on as the Hornets (3-4) busted a three-game losing streak.
"He was just aggressive. He went to the hole and was able to draw a lot of fouls," L'Anse coach Mike Ostermeyer said.
The game was tight throughout as the Hornets struggled to contain Chassell's hot shooting, which included six threes and 22 points from Josh Pietila and a team-best 23 from Carson Ryynanen on career nights for both.
"We picked up our play on the defensive end in the fourth quarter and overtime and I thought we did a much better job of attacking the rim offensively," Ostermeyer said.
Jacob Ostermeyer scored 14 points and Keith Denomie 10 for L'Anse, which hosts U.P. No. 2 Negaunee Tuesday night. L'Anse won the JV game.
Chassell, which has lost three straight to fall to 3-4 overall, is off until a Jan. 17 home game with Ewen-Trout Creek.

Dollar Bay 15
HANCOCK - Matt Yao had a night to shine for Hancock, as his career-high 18 points and four three-pointers led the Bulldogs to an easy win.
