Kellogg Community College’s men’s basketball team won at its latest home game 87-73 against rival Kalamazoo Valley Community College on Wednesday.
Leading the Bruins on the court were sophomore Jamari Thomas-Newell, who had 23 points; sophomore Gregorye Windom, who had 11 points; freshman Dashaan Palmer, who had 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocked shots; freshman Tahveayr Boykins, who had 18 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists; and freshman Larry Patrick, who had 10 points.
KCC’s Head Men’s Basketball Coach Gary Sprague said sophomore Ron Jamierson stole an outlet pass and took it in for a layup just over one minute into KCC’s game against KVCC. That gave the Bruins a 2-0 lead that they would never relinquish.
“KVCC trailed by as much as 16 points and made a run to cut the lead to two points midway through the second half,” Sprague said. “But full-court press and clutch free-throw shooting allowed the Bruins to pull away.”
The Bruins’ recent home victory brings their overall season record to 4-9; the team’s conference record is 1-1.
The team’s next match is away against Glen Oaks Community College in Centreville. The game starts at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11.
