Practice makes perfect Javon Hurston gets a lesson in defense from Eastern Michigan University forward Brad Soucie at Old Ypsilanti High School Saturday. The youngster was one of the 53 area fifth and sixth graders who participated in an eight-week basketball program sponsored by Parkridge Community Center. Soucie, who etched his name in the NCAA record books with eight 3-point baskets in a recent tournament game against Pittsburgh, helped officiate the league's championship game and spoke to the players about the role of sports in their lives. Afterward, Soucie dazzled everyone with his long-range shooting ability. This is the first year for the basketball program, which included five girl players, and according to Parkridge Director Ken Miller, owes its success to the contributions of several adult volunteers.
