The MCC Women’s Basketball team dropped a non-conference game to Southwestern Michigan College, 67-59.
MCC got off to another rough start, only scoring 11 points in the 1st quarter and 11 points in the 2nd quarter. They went into the locker room down 10, 32-22. The offense picked up in the second half as they outscored the Roadrunners in the 3rd quarter and they managed to tie the game at 52-52 midway through the 4th quarter, but Southwestern hit for a couple of 3 pointers to pull away at the end.
Emmerson Goodin (Newaygo) led the Jayhawks with 16 points and 5 rebounds and Karleigh Jeffries (Whitehall) added 14 points and 9 rebounds.
“It was a tough loss today,” said Coach Jason Cooper. “Our effort wasn’t where it needed to be for a win.”
MCC is 4-3 on the season. They will travel to Illinois to compete in the Lake Land Tournament on Friday, 12/6 and Saturday 12/7.
