Mott freshman Doug Anderson soars for a slam in the second half.

FLINT, Michigan — The Mott Community College Bears are where they were expected to be, just a little early.

Like a year early.

Mott (24-3), with a roster chock-full of freshman, won its 11th straight game on Tuesday night over a hard-charging Oakland team that had beaten nationally-ranked St. Clair and Henry Ford in the last week.

The Bears, who sealed the outright MCCAA Eastern Conference championship with the win, led by eight at the break and never trailed in the second half, winning 70-60.

Mott was led by freshman Doug Anderson, who scored 19 points including a pair of 3-pointers. Freshman Mike Brigham scored 10 points and Sam Burton added 10 points, 10 rebounds and three assists.

Mott played the second half without its starting shooting guard, sophomore Bobby Lewis, who injured his toe in the first half.

Andre Johnson led Oakland (20-8) with 19 points. Kevin Grayer, one of the state’s top scorers, was once again held in check. He finished with seven points.

Mott will play Kirtland on the road Wednesday before Saturday’s station championship game versus Glen Oaks.

    Not sure if Mott thinks Oakland CC is a harder team to play than St Clair County CC, but Mott beating Oakland puts Oakland in 4th place in the Eastern Conference, and insures they play them again in their bracket of the District playoffs. Oakland CC in 4th place of the Eastern Conference. WOW! Whoda Thunk!?!! Guess it doesn’t really matter, because that District 9 is gonna be a three game killer tournament in any event, just like last year:

    Mott is definitely the favorite, but just like last year, they can be beat if they have a letdown or a bad game. Henry Ford and Oakland both have the talent to pull off an upset. Even though I’m a big fan of SC4, they’d have to play a near perfect game and catch the other team on an off night in order to win. I don’t think that Coach Vos gets enough credit for the good job he does with his teams. His teams aren’t as talented as Mott, HFCC or OCC, but they always play hard and usually give them a tough fight.

  3. well of course community colleges are part of a good educational system too ~:.
