Muskegon Community College traveled to Flint, MI and dropped a contest to 8th ranked Mott Community College by a score of 73-62 despite inspired play from the Jayhawk defense. Unfortunately the offense gave up some untimely turn overs at the end of the first half and then suffered an 0-6 spell from the 3 point line in the second half.
The Jayhawks were led by freshman Josh Smith (Lansing Waverly HS) with 17 points, Daryl Kirkland II (Muskegon HS) with 16 points and Travez Nyx (Wayne Memorial HS) with 10 points.
“Its extremely frustrating to lose a game, but it’s even more frustrating to lose a game because you keep shooting yourself in the foot,” said Head Coach Jimmy Booth. “That’s exactly what we did tonight with all those turnovers, especially in the first half, and all those missed lay ups and open shots. But I challenged our guys defensively and they answered. I am proud of that and proud of how hard we are competing, we just have to stop making life so hard on ourselves.”
The Jayhawks fall to 2-4 on the year and travel to Eastern Conference power Macomb Community College on Saturday, 12/2 for game 4 of a 5 game road trip. Game time is 3:00 pm.
