Muskegon Community College lost a tight game to the 4th ranked Ancilla College Chargers 102-100.
The Jayhawks had five players in double figures, lead by Sergio Diaz (Grand Rapids Union HS) with 21 points, all in the second half.

“We are struggling right now to close out games and make good decisions at the end of games,” said Head Coach Jimmy Booth. “We work on it every day in practice. This team is young but also tough and extremely talented. We will figure it out. Ancilla is a good team. So are we. We just have to make better decisions with the basketball. That falls on all of us, including me.”
The Jayhawks are now 0-1 in the Western Conference and 3-8 overall. They return to action on Saturday, 1/6 when they host Grand Rapids Community College. Tip off will be 3:00 pm.
