Mott Community College earned its second win in three days, knocking off Schoolcraft College (10-7) Wednesday night, 84-62. The Bears turned in a strong night of work defensively, forcing the Ocelots into 28 turnovers.

“Not a bad effort; not where we need to be, but we’re a work in progress,” said Mott head coach Steve Schmidt on MRSN radio. “One thing you can bring every game is how hard you play. They did a pretty good job tonight. I’ll figure out a way to get these guys playing at the level they should be.”

Sophomore guard Malik Albert led the Bears with 22 points. Freshman guard Marcus Johnson chipped in with 17. Sophomore transfer Jamal Reynolds, probably the biggest bright spot for the Bears this season, continued his strong play with 11 points and seven rebounds.

Despite being in foul trouble for much of the game, Mott freshman Ruston Hayward, in his second game back since knee surgery, scored 12 points with four rebounds and four assists.

Mott (14-4) returns to action at 3 p.m. Saturday at home versus Alpena.
