Wednesday night in West Bloomfield, Mich., varsity assistant Dan Dardarian coached against his cousin, Andrew Hovsepian, a senior guard at Mott High School in Waterford. Hovsepian proved to be the difference in the non-league contest, as he sank a 3-point field goal with under a minute remaining to give Mott the lead on their way to a 56-52 victory over WBHS.
Hovsepian finished Wednesday’s game with nine points, five rebounds, three assists, and a steal. As a three-year starter, Hovsepian currently leads the Corsairs in assists, steals, and three-point shooting. Hovsepian’s long-range shooting percentage, currently 50-percent on 5-of-10, is one of the higher marks in the Kensington Lakes Athletic Association (KLAA). In 2010, Hovsepian led Mott in assists and steals while finishing second in scoring. His 44-percent three-point shooting and 57-percent field goal percentage in 2009 as a sophomore led the team.
In addition, Hovsepian is 5-time selection to the All-Tournament team at the Pan Orthodox Tournament held each spring in Detroit.
Dardarian, a 2004 graduate of West Bloomfield High School, also coaches the Freshman team and they are 2-0 in the early season including a 55-37 win against Mott.
