The Jayhawks lost a conference game to the 2nd ranked Ancilla College Chargers tonight by a score of 113-89.
The first half was a back and forth affair with Ancilla taking a 48-45 lead into the locker room. The Jayhawks would grab a short lived lead with 11:59 left in the game but they went cold from the field, shooting just 12% from 3 point range and only 32% for the entire second half.
The Jayhawks got a strong offensive performance from Daryl Kirkland II (Muskegon HS) who led all scorers with 26 points. Dylan Mulder (Zion Lutheran Christian HS, FL) came off the bench and scored 18, Sergio Diaz (Grand Rapids Union HS) finished with 15 and Miguel Mahan (Baldwin HS) added 14.
“Our defensive effort and focus just isn’t there right now,” said Head Coach Jimmy Booth. “We have to take pride in our defense and we’re simply not doing that. We can’t expect to win giving up 100 plus and allowing a team to shoot as well as them. Completely inexcusable.”
MCC is now 6-4 in conference play and 9-11 overall. They hit the road on Wednesday, 2/7 for a matchup with rival Grand Rapids Community College. Tip off is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
