6-8 – Lahser HS – Bloomfield, MI
Maten may have had the performance of the night in Team Detroit’s win over the Northwest Panthers. The 6-8 big man scored 21 points and collected 19 rebounds. Maten was an absolute workhorse on the glass, using his strength to muscle his way to plenty of offensive rebounds and put backs inside.
