Sonny Wilson tossed aside early frustrations to make sure University of Detroit Jesuit would end its two-game losing streak, scoring 12 of his 20 points during the fourth quarter for a 52-43 win over Warren Fitzgerald on Tuesday.
Fitzgerald (3-2) once again showed it could play against the state powers, pushing River Rouge to the limit before a 61-59 season-opening loss Dec. 14, then playing U-D Jesuit even (30-30) with 6:38 remaining in the second half.
Wilson had trouble finishing at the basket, making just 4-of-13 shots from the field while not getting to the free-throw line.
Wilson then made 10-of-10 free throws, also attacking the basket and scoring a layup during the game-ending 22-13 run.
U-D Jesuit improved to 4-2 while playing without four players, including its sixth man due to COVID-19 issues.
