PETOSKEY – Milan came away with two losses on a long road trip this weekend to the Petoskey Tournament. Marquette won 52-27 over the Big Reds on Friday, and Petoskey topped Milan 44-40 Saturday.

Milan struggled in the second half against Marquette. The Big Reds trailed just 22-15 at the intermission, but Marquette outscored Milan 30-12 in the second half.

"We didn't shoot the ball particularly well against Marquette," Milan coach Bobby Green said. "We didn't finish the chances we had. We were in there are halftime, but we didn't hit anything in the second half and it got away from us."

The Big Reds bounced back on Saturday but let the game slip away late in the fourth quarter. Milan scored 22 points in the second quarter to take a 27-24 lead into halftime. Milan got ahead again in the fourth quarter but couldn't hold back the host school.

"We were up 5 with about two minutes left, but not hitting shots down the stretch again cost us," Green said.

Milan fell to 1-2 to open the season.
