It's official.

The Lake Orion boys basketball team is the team to beat in the OAA Blue Division.

The Dragons have met and slain the teams considered to be among the Blue Division's best and now sport a 5-0 record in division play and lead by two games over Farmington Harrison.

Last week, the Dragons showed Harrison why they are the best in the OAA Blue with a 59-45 victory. Harrison entered the fray tied with Lake Orion atop the OAA Blue.

The Dragons once again demonstrated a balanced attack and a solid defense. They outscored Harrison 16-3 in the second quarter, holding them to only three free throws in the stanza.

Chaz Miller led Lake Orion with 19 points.

On Friday, the Dragons topped Farmington, 68-59, to continued their divisional dominance.

Miller again scored 19 points followed by John McCarty with 12. Nine other players also netted points for Lake Orion.
