LEROY \u2014 Julie Justin didn\u2019t want to give up on basketball after finishing her stellar career at Pine River. She recently got her wish by signing a letter of intent to play basketball and attend Mid Michigan Community College in Mount Pleasant. \u201cI was looking at different schools and I really wanted to play basketball and the coaches came to talk with me,\u201d Justin said. \u201cI thought it would be a good fit for me.\u201d Mid Michigan coaches made contact with Justin earlier this year during the basketball season. It was the only program she seriously considered. \u201cThey\u2019ve been very successful,\u201d Justin said. \u201cThey\u2019ll be pretty young.\u201d Mid Michigan plays its games at Morey Courts in Mount Pleasant. Justin said she isn\u2019t sure how Mid Michigan\u2019s coaches will use her, but is assuming it will be either as point or wing which she played in high school. Justin completed a four-year career in which she passed the 1,000-point mark, becoming only the third Pine River athlete to accomplish it. The two others were her mom, Paula, and sister, Jamie. She led the Bucks to Highland Conference and Class C district titles this season. Justin averaged 14.8 points, 4.0 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game. \u201cOur regular season record over her years is 66-11,\u201d Pine River coach Shawn Ruppert said. \u201cThe most regular season games we have lost (in one season) is three. We have won three conference championships during that period. She has been all-conference all four years.\u201d Justin played volleyball during the fall. She\u2019s usually devoted herself to AAU basketball in the spring and will continue to do that as she prepares for the collegiate level. \u201cI hope to improve on my defense and ball handling,\u201d she said. Being with a two-year college, Justin is hoping to get playing time her freshman season. Her plans will be to transfer to a four-year college and continue to play basketball.
