Boys Varsity Basketball · Novi Defeats Northville in Thriller

The Novi Wildcats made it two straight wins Friday night when they knocked off cross city rivals Northville in a game that went down to the last second.  Aryan Verma took a Jiovanni Miles pass in the corner and hit a 3 point shot with 11 seconds to go to put the Cats up by 1.  Northville’s final play ended without much of a threat and Novi pulled out the win.  The game was tight throughout, with multiple lead changes.  Novi went into the 4th quarter down 5 and had been down 9 at one point.  All around, it was a great team win.  Jiovanni Miles led the ‘Cats with 16 points.  Troy Aikins had 8 points and 6 rebounds and the junior combo of Miles Sloan and Bruce Turner contributed 12 points.  Next up for Novi is at Salem Thursday for the last game before the Christmas break.
