Muskegon Community College lost to the Hope College JV team by a score of 81-71. The Jayhawks led for most of the first half but the home team Flying Dutchmen were able to take control of the game in the second half for the win.
The Jayhawks were led by sophomore Sergio Diaz (GR Union HS) who recorded a double double with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Freshman Josh Smith (Lansing Waverly HS) also had 17 points while Daryl Kirkland II (Muskegon HS) and Miguel Mahan (Baldwin HS) added 14 and 15 points respectively.
“It was unacceptable for us to come out and play the way we did. There was a complete lack of urgency and effort on both ends of the floor”, said head Coach Jimmy Booth. “We have to come ready to play every night. They did and we didnt.”
The Jayhawks are now 2-2. They return to action on Saturday, 11/18 with a road trip to Schoolcraft College in Livonia, MI. Game time is 3:00 pm.
