We’re already knee-deep into the boys and girls basketball seasons.
Here are some news and notes from the first few weeks.
• No doubt, Reese, Sandusky and Brown City — just like last season — seem to be the top teams in the Greater Thumb Conference, combining for an 18-0 start.
The 5-0 Redskins were pushed by Vassar in the season opener, but haven’t been threatened since.
Lauren Krause, Whitney Fox and Emily Hale have had nice starts to the season for the Redskins. They showed off Friday night at Elkton-Pigeon-Bay Port, combining for 37 points in the Redskins’ 51-34 win over the Lakers.
• There are a few other teams inching closer to the Big 3.
In the GTW, Vassar and Unionville-Sebewaing Area might push the Rockets.
USA has been led by sophomore Miranda Fuerst, who is averaging 14 points per game for the 2-1 Patriots. 
For the 3-1 Vulcans, Lydia Peplinski had a 20-point game against Caro while teammate Alisha Campbell has drilled eight three-pointers.
In the GTE, Harbor Beach and Marlette are both 3-1 and could push the Redskins and Green Devils.
Jenna Hirsch has been lighting up the scoreboard for the Raiders, averaging 18.7 points in her first four games.
Tori Kraft has carried the Pirates, averaging 16 points in her four games.
• There have been some notable performances in the North Central Thumb League.
North Huron’s Sara Clancy is averaging 18.3 points in her team’s first three games.
Owendale-Gagetown’s Mandy Muntz had 12 blocked shots in a recent game, bringing her season’s total to 23 in four outings.

• In the GTW, for those of you who have missed it, Bay City All Saints is 2-0, thanks mostly to Drew Janer.
Janer is averaging 24 points in the two Cougars’ victories.
Elsewhere, Bad Axe forced 28 Mayville turnovers in its 44-point win over the Wildcats last week.
The Hatchets put five players in double figures, led by Spencer Kelly’s 18 points.
“Kelly was just too physical for us,” said Mayville coach Leon Westover.
Kelly was an impressive 6-of-7 from the foul line, as well.
• In the GTE, Harbor Beach, Ubly and Sandusky are all 2-0.
The Redskins are a bit of a surprise under first-year coach Ryan Pritchett. 
Jordan Coats leads the Redskins at 11.5 points per game while the team has buried 10 threes in the first two games.
• In the NCTL, Carsonville-Port Sanilac’s Calvin Amey is averaging 23 points per game, which includes at 30-point outburst in the season opener against Akron-Fairgrove.
Peck’s Tim Logghe had 23 point in a season-opening win over Dryden.
