A buzzer-beating three-point shot from Grand Rapids Community College brought the Kellogg Community College men’s basketball team into overtime Wednesday, where they struggled at the finish and lost 83-93 in a tough conference match-up.
The loss brings the team’s Michigan Community College Athletic Association Western Conference record to 4-7 and their overall record to 7-16 for the season so far.
Sophomore guard Christian Covile (John Glenn) posted 28 points for the Bruins, adding five steals and four blocks in the process. Freshman guard Jalen Lamar (Comstock) scored 26, pulling down eight rebounds and dishing out four assists.
Also contributing for the Bruins was freshman forward Nathan Taylor (Battle Creek Central), who added another double-double to his stat sheet with 11 points and 13 rebounds, along with four assists; and freshman forward Devrin Hill (Portage Central), who had six blocks.
The team plays next beginning at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, against Glen Oaks Community College at home in the Miller Gym on KCC’s North Avenue campus. Admission to the game — and the women’s game before it, which starts at 5:30 p.m. — is free.
