The yearly St. Clair-Mott game at Ballenger Fieldhouse is always interesting because the Skippers, who might as well be dubbed Flint Southeastern because the school has been such a good landing spot for city high school players over the years, always bring a group of local guys back who would love nothing more than to beat Mott in front of their hometown fans.

Austin Harper, Glen Oaks

Here’s a look at the top 15 players in the MCCAA through half a season. This list is one part production and another part potential. So, for instance, Austin Harper may not have as much potential as Jamie Stewart (that’s debatable), but his production is insane. The comment section is open for suggestions.

1.) Austin Harper, sophomore guard, Glen Oaks: Harper, a WMU transfer, has been putting on a show so far this season. He is averaging 16 points per game with 11 assists. Harper, a sneaky good athlete from west Michigan, is shooting better than 60 percent from the floor and 65 percent from 3-point range. This was going to be Jamie Stewart’s spot until I saw those field goal percentages — that’s incredible for a guard.

2.) Jamie Stewart, sophomore guard, Henry Ford: Stewart is a reliable 3-point shot away from being a prototype shooting guard. He is ultra athletic with the ability to create shots for himself and his teammates. His mid-range game is impressive as well. He is averaging 17 points, eight rebounds and three assists this season. He will be playing at D-1 Montana State next season.

3.) Mike Brigham, sophomore forward, Mott: Brigham has actually been less productive than many had expected (13 points and eight rebounds). Even so, he’s still a dynamic prospect who has improved his shooting and ballhandling since last season. Look for Brigham to have a monster second half. He started lighting it up over the some and impressed some scouts in Vegas. He has at least six D-1 offers from low to mid-major schools.

Pretty good win for the Bears without their best guard sophomore Bobby Lewis. From Hotbed Hoops:

FLINT, Michigan — The Mott Community College Bears haven’t dealt with a whole lot of adversity so far this season.

Save for their lone blemish on the road against Kalamazoo Valley, the Bears have been winning games going away.

And then came Saturday.

The Bears were forced to scratch and claw their way to an 81-72 victory over Grand Rapids without two of their top guards, sophomore Bobby Lewis and freshman Demetrius Miller.

Miller was out with bronchitis and Lewis played only six minutes in the game with a lingering bad back.

Mott Community College’s freshman guard Marshawn Norris returned home to play Jackson Community college last night and brought a few fans with him.

Norris had his own cheering section of middle schoolers watching the former all-stater at Napleon and the Bears defeated Jackson 95-55.

Steve Finamore, one of the top up-and-coming coaches in the JUCO ranks, is in his third year at Jackson after the school reinstated its basketball program.

The no. 5-ranked Mott Community College Bears will renew their rivalry tonight at 7:30 p.m. on the road against Lansing Community College.

The Bears come into the contest at 3-1, fresh off a near-blowout victory over Sinclair (Ohio) on Saturday afternoon. Mott has gotten the best of Lansing more times than not over the past several years, but this matchup is almost always competitive.
