SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (FOX 2) - The champs are here!
The trophy is back home after the chumps at Local 4 kept it warm for a couple of years as FOX 2 is once again the champions.
FOX 2 came out victorious in the annual charity basketball game with Local 4 - as expected to be honest - after a thrilling comeback win.
Let's set the stage.
The bad guys in red got the scoring started with a layup then a floater found the bottom of the net. With Local 4 up by 4, FOX 2 finally got on the board with a layup from Alan Longstreet under the bucket.
Longstreeet wasn't done - picking up a couple points off rebounds and some key assists.
Local 4 pushed back and eventually took the lead but FOX 2 kept it close.
Thanks to a key steal and layup from, you guessed it, Longstreet followed by a key block on a desperation 3, also by Longstreet, FOX 2 was able to come away with the victory.
Along the way, Derek Kevra landed hard on his knee but X-Rays and tests are all negative so he's still okay to give you the (accurate) forecast.
The game is played every year as a charity event at the Hope United Methodist Church Gymnasium. Come see your favorite TV anchors ball it out for charity...and bragging rights.
In the end, FOX 2 won 46-38. There were no real stat keepers but it seems that Longstreet is the MVP.
Regardless, this tweet did not age well, Local 4
