The Jayhawks hosted the Mid Michigan Community College Lakers and prevailed by a score of 78-62.
Josh Smith (Lansing Waverly HS) scored a game high 28 points for the Jayhawks, including 9-11 from the free throw line. Daryl Kirkland II (Muskegon HS) added 22 points and Dequaveon Stuckey (Grand Rapids Union HS) also scored in double digits with 10.
“Mid was tied with us in the league standings so today was a huge win for us,” said Head Coach Jimmy Booth. “I thought we came ready to go and Josh played really well start to finish. I was the most pleased with the way we defended, we talk about it all the time. Our defense should never change even we are up. I thought we did a great job defending for 40 minutes today.”
