Mott scores hard-fought victory over no. 5 Grand Rapids, 78-64

Posted: November 11, 2010 by Jared Field in College

Mott’s balanced scoring attack was too much for no. 5 ranked Grand Rapids Wednesday night. The Bears never trailed in the game and closed out the victory, 78-64.

Mott was led by its trio of talented sophomores forwards: Doug Anderson led the Bears with 17 points and six rebounds. Mike Brigham poured in 15 points and nine rebounds. Leviante Davis added 14 points and six rebounds.

Mott’s only guard in double figures was sophomore Marshawn Norris, who scored 12 points and dished out six assists.

Mott, now 2-0 and ranked no. 2 in the first NJCAA poll, seeks to avenge some early-season missteps from this time last year.

Read the Flint Journal’s recap here. It doesn’t look like the GR Press covered the game, so I don’t have any idea how the GRCC guys performed. I do know that former Flint Hamady standout Roy Jackson had eight points and two assists for Grand Rapids.

    I’ll link game story tonight. Got stuff from game to coaches, but running behind with “public consumption” stuff. It was weird, right after GR tied it, they went deep into the bench with some guys who weren’t ready for Mott’s perimeter D, and that was the game.

    Gore was the difference, think he scored all of his 14 in the second half and was a real matchup problem. Even had a steal/dunk. Particularly crucial because Brigham had foul trouble and Anderson was erratic.

    Norris was solid, has improved on D, hit shots in the flow.

    Thought Houston from Beecher was the best “GR Flintstone”, smart player who seemed to always be around the ball. GR’s best player was easily Alex Lyle, very gifted freshman who kept them in the game in the first half with 14 points, including 3s in TJ Cameron’s grill because he gets great elevation on his shot.
