Muskegon Community College won their home opener over the Aquinas College JV team by a score of 80-63. The Jayhawks were led by Darryl Kirkland II (Muskegon HS) with 27 points and 9 assists. Sergio Diaz (Grand Rapids Union HS) added 15 points and freshman Aaron Veihl (Fruitport HS) came off the bench and scored 13. Miguel Mahan (Baldwin HS) grabbed 10 rebounds and added 9 points.
“It is always nice to get that first win of the year,” said Head Coach Jimmy Booth. “Aquinas has some good players and they run a good program with coaches that coached right here at MCC. We still have a lot of work to do, but we will certainly take the win.”
The Jayhawks are now 1-1 on the season. They return to the court on Saturday, 11/11 when they host Ancilla College. Tip off will be approximately 3:00 pm.
