Bulldogs Say Goodbye to McAfee

Ferris State’s men’s basketball team gave their senior a season to remember by going out with a bang.

Forward Raymoan McAfee was the only senior for the Bulldogs this year and led his teammates to a season record of 10-16 overall. The Bulldogs defeated Saginaw Valley State in a 78-66 win in Big Rapids.

McAfee started the game over normal starting center Jared Stolicker, and his teammates allowed him four chances to hit from beyond the arc in the last 1:20 of his final game, much to the chagrin of men’s head basketball coach Andy Bronkema, who repeatedly told his team to hold the ball. McAfee missed all four chances.

McAfee was the lone senior honored from men’s basketball on senior day inside the Jim Wink Arena.

DeShone finishes strong despite loss in final game

Senior guard Sarah DeShone almost led the Bulldogs to another victory to finish up her final collegiate game but fell short to Saginaw Valley State with an 82-71 loss in overtime last weekend.

The lone senior and a two-time All-American wrapped up her career ranked among Ferris’ all-time leaders in nearly every statistical category.

DeShone finished with 24 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals in her 42 minutes of action during her last game as a Bulldog.

The senior scored 17.8 points per game in her final season as a Bulldog and was supplemented largely by redshirt sophomore Dena Droste’s emergence as a scoring threat

DeShone was one of the most decorated players in Ferris State’s history. Ferris finished the season 10-14 overall.
