Kellogg Community College’s men’s basketball team lost at its latest home game 91-83 against Muskegon Community College on Wednesday.
Leading the Bruins were sophomore Ronald Jamierson, with 24 points; sophomore Jamari Thomas-Newell, with 16 points; freshman Tahveayr Boykins, who had 16 points and 13 rebounds; freshman Dashaan Palmer, who had 11 points and 8 rebounds; and freshman Larry Patrick, helping his team all over the court with 8 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 blocked shots.
Head Coach Gary Sprague said it was another tough loss for the Bruins.
“After a slow start and trailing by 12 at halftime, KCC was able to take the lead midway through the second half,” Sprague said. “Muskegon’s size was what made the difference for the end result. Muskegon parlayed 17 offensive rebounds into 18 points for the finish.”
The Bruins’ recent loss brings the team’s overall season record to 5-12; the team’s conference record is 2-4.
The Bruins play next at home starting at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, against Jackson College at the Miller Gym on campus in Battle Creek. Admission to all home KCC athletic events is free.
