The Kellogg Community College men’s basketball team won at it’s latest away game 90-83 against Ancillca College on Wednesday.
It was a vigorous game for the Bruins at last night’s match as they faced second-place Ancilla College to hold a spot for the playoffs.
“Ancilla came out and took an early 13-point lead. But the Bruins weathered the storm and cut the Chargers’ lead to 3 by halftime,” said Head Men’s Basketball Coach Gary Sprague. “KCC’s defense covered the arc holding Ancilla’s shooters to 22% from behind the arc while the offense knocked down 13 three-pointers. KCC led by as much as 16 points by the second half and was able to hold back the Chargers with consistent free-throw shooting 7-8.”
Leading for the Bruins were freshman Tahveayr Boykins, who had 17 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals; sophomore Ron Jamierson, with 17 points; freshman Eddie Wesley, who had 16 points; freshman Dashaan Palmer, with 16 points and 12 rebounds; sophomore Jamari Thomas-Newell, with 12 points and 9 rebounds; and sophomore Zackary Sims with 6 rebounds.
The Bruins’ recent victory brings the team’s overall season record so far to 7-13, and the team’s conference record to 4-5.
The team’s next match is home against conference opponent Lansing Community College in the Miller Gym on campus in Battle Creek. The game will start at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1. Admission to all KCC home games is free.
