It's not easy for any team to win two games in a row, let alone two games in one day. Marion beat Kokomo in a semi-final game yesterday morning 59-56 in a screamer. Marion was losing at halftime, built up a double-digit lead, and almost gave the game away at the end. Scott Wood was big with 24 points. Next up for the Giants was the Regional Championship game versus powerhouse Fort Wayne Snider. Snider came into the title game with only one loss on the season. They left the game with still only one loss on the resume after beating Marion 80-59. Snider also beat Marion earlier this season on February 27th 66-82. Marion fell short of their third straight Regional Championship. Scott Wood had 18 points in the loss. The Marion Giants should still be given a hand for having an unbelievable season at 21-4. Hopefully Wood's performance yesterday caught the attention of some of the people who will be voting for the Mr. Basketball award.
