Mott Community College (Flint, Michigan) leads a quintet of Michigan-based JUCOs in the preseason NJCAA top 25. This is the most I’ve ever seen in this particular poll.
2.) Mott Community College (Flint, Michigan)
5.) Grand Rapids Community College (Grand Rapids, Michigan)
9.) Henry Ford Community College (Dearborn, Michigan)
22.) Lansing Community College (Lansing, Michigan)
25.) St. Clair County Community College (Port Huron, Michigan)
Each and every season, the MCCAA is among the best JUCO conferences in the country. Last year the powers that be in the NJCAA recognized as much when they allowed for two teams from the conference (east, west) to compete in the national tournament. I can’t encourage you enough to get out and support these programs. It’s exciting basketball, inexpensive and heavy on athleticism. What could be better?
