Mott tops MCCAA Eastern Conference standings ahead of showdown with Owens

Posted: December 3, 2012 by Jared Field in JUCO, Mott

No. 1-ranked Mott Community is 5-0 and atop the MCCAA Eastern Conference standings as the Bears look forward to Wednesday night’s clash with unranked Owens (Ohio). Head coach Dave Clark, former Mott and Toledo assistant, has the talent to not only compete but also potentially beat Mott with great performances from both sophomore standouts Justin Edmonds and James Kelly.

The game, which tips at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night, has trap potential for the Bears. It is the team’s first road game of the season.

Mott head coach Steve Schmidt will lean on his frontcourt (Fred Mattison and Coreante DeBerry) to not only slow down Kelly, but also keep Owens off the glass like they did in the second half against Lansing last Wednesday night. Sophomore guard/forward Kory Billups make get the first shot at stopping Edmonds, a rangy and athletic guards who can score in bunches.

Mott is still the favorite, but coming into the season Owens was the one team on the schedule (home and away) I scribbled a question mark next to.
