“It was cold outside but the Bruins were hot inside at last night’s game against Kalamazoo Valley,” said Head Men’s Basketball Coach Gary Sprague. “KCC jumped out to a 17-1 lead and never looked back. Greg Windom and Eddie Wesley came off the bench and scored all of their combined 34 points in the second half. The Bruins used the 3-point shot as their main weapon, hitting 18 of 40 3-pointers. They also turned the ball over only one time in the game. Every player on the team scored with the final 2 coming on a dunk by Larry Patrick. The Bruins are home this Saturday for a 3 p.m. game against Glen Oaks. “
The recent win brings the Bruins’ overall record for the season so far to 9-13; the team’s conference record is 6-5.
The team’s next match is home on campus in Battle Creek at the Miller Gym. Tip-off is at 3 p.m Saturday, Feb. 8, versus GOCC. Admission to all KCC athletic events is free.
