MUSKEGON — Whitehall’s boys basketball team was looking for a well-rounded team effort in Thursday night’s West Michigan Conference Lakes Division contest at Oakridge.

That’s what the Vikings got, as their starters played fewer minutes than usual and made way for their teammates to see the floor in a 68-46 victory over the Eagles.

It was the second-straight win after three consecutive losses for Whitehall, which improved to 6-4 overall and 3-1 in WMC Lakes play.

Oakridge is now 4-4 overall and 2-3 in WMC Lakes action.

Here are more details and notables from the game:

  • Whitehall junior DJ Jamison led his team with 19 points, two rebounds and two steals.
  • Whitehall sophomore Camden Thompson finished with 10 points and 16 rebounds.
  • Whitehall senior Jack Houtteman had 10 points, five steals and four rebounds.
