(WNDU) - Regional champions were crowned on Thursday night for Michigan high school girls basketball, and one team in our local area is moving on to the state quarterfinals!

The Buchanan Bucks cruised to a 70-47 win over Kalamazoo Christian in the Division 3 Regional 20 championship.

“I watched enough film that I had myself talked into that this was going to go down to the wire,” said Head Coach Gabe Miller after the game. “That’s a great team over there, so I’m really proud of the defensive effort as a whole. That’s where it started, and that’s where our challenge was.

“Tuesday, we didn’t play great defensively early, and it was a tight game, and we’re probably lucky to be here,” he continued. “Today, they came out and did what they’re supposed to do and. super lucky and super proud.”

Buchanan will face Hart in the quarterfinal round on Tuesday, March 14, at Bangor.

“We’re blessed to be here, we’re lucky, and we got to get ready for somebody good on Tuesday,” Miller said.
