River Rouge Hoops defeated in State Title Game; coach not happy as runner-up


“Rouge basketball is based on state championships,” Stone said. “There are 14 state championship banners in our gymnasium. Coach (Lofton) Greene has a number of runner-up second places, but he didn’t place those banners in the gymnasium. That’s my mentor, he taught me everything I know about basketball. If he’s not satisfied with runner-ups, neither can I be.”
