Orchard Lake — Lorne Bowman scored 26, including a pair of 3-pointers during a 15-0 second-quarter run, to lead Orchard Lake St. Mary’s to a 54-42 Catholic League Central Division win over Warren De La Salle Friday night to sweep the season’s series.

Bowman, a 6-foot-2 junior guard, made consecutive 3-pointers from the top of the key to spark the pivotal run to open up a 28-11 lead with 38 seconds left in the half.

Then, after a De La Salle basket, Bowman connected on his third 3-pointer of the quarter for a 31-13 halftime lead.

“We just got into a rhythm, got into transition and were able to get some baskets and get off to a nice little lead there,” said Bowman, a Wisconsin commit who is averaging 23 points.

OLSM (9-5, 4-3) played outstanding defense with 6-8 sophomore Peter Nwoke and 6-8, 230-pound senior Matt Nowicki making it tough inside for De La Salle.

Oh, and 5-7 freshman phenom Kareem Rozier showed his playmaking ability, setting up Nwoke for an alley-oop dunk and 26-11 lead after 6-7 freshman DeCorion Temple rejected a layup at the other end to set up the transition basket.

“When they (De La Salle) got in the paint, they kind of swarmed them and made it tough for them to make shots,” said Bowman of OLSM’s play inside on the defensive end by Nwoke, Nowicki and Temple. “Really, I think we got down to the nitty, gritty, were able to get some stops throughout the game.”

OLSM increased its lead to 37-16 late in the third quarter before De La Salle made its first field goal of the quarter with 30 seconds left.

Sophomore guard William Smythe scored 11 for De La Salle (7-7, 2-5), which was hit hard by graduation loss after advancing to the Class A state semifinals at the Breslin Center last season.
