Clarkston — Freshman Fletcher Loyer set up 7-footer Matt Nicholson for a couple of alley-oop dunks to get the fans out of their seats, as if they really needed another reason after the gymnasium was named Dan Fife Fieldhouse earlier Friday night in honor of the longtime Clarkston coach who retired prior to the season.

Fletcher — younger brother of Michigan State freshman guard Foster Loyer who was Mr. Basketball after helping Clarkston repeat as Class A state champions last season — scored 21 to make sure the home fans left happy following a 60-46 win over Wayne Memorial.

Clarkston (3-2) led 28-20 at halftime, then opened up the second half with three consecutive 3-pointers, two from Loyer and another from freshman guard Keegan Wasilk — nephew of head coach Tim Wasilk who replaced Fife — to open a 37-25 lead.

Loyer had a pair of assists leading to Nicholson’s dunks off of penetration moves later in the quarter for a 46-32 cushion. Nicholson finished with a double-double (14 points, 10 rebounds) and Wasilk and Desmond Mills-Bradley each scored eight.

“We knew it was a big night tonight playing in front of Coach Fife and all of the people here, definitely our biggest game yet,” said Loyer who made four 3-pointers. “We knew we had to come out and play hard and we did just that, whether it was making shots, getting steals or getting back on defense.”

“We knew coming in we had to move the ball with their trap coming at us and I thought all of our guards did that. And, we had to come out and hit them hard right after halftime because we knew they are a great team and that they could come back.”

Senior guard Isaiah Lewis scored 20 for Wayne.
