Mott wins 10th straight game, prepares for showdown with Henry Ford

Posted: January 3, 2011 by Jared Field in College

FLINT, Michigan — Delta College was the team that could have caught Mott looking ahead to Wednesday’s showdown versus rival Henry Ford in Dearborn. If the Bears were thinking ahead, they certainly showed no signs of it.

Mott (13-2) led by 17 at the half and pulled away to win 94-67. The win was the Bears’ 11th in a row.

Sophomore forward Doug Anderson and sophomore point guard Demetrius Miller scored 22 points apiece to lead Mott. Anderson did his damage in the first half and Miller took over after the break. Anderson went 10-for-12 from the field with 10 rebounds and four assists. Miller caught fire in the second half from range, connecting on five of his seven attempts.

Freshman reserve point guard Darryl Marshall had a solid all-around effort for Mott with 11 points, two assists and zero turnovers.

Sophomore Brad Norman, the heart and soul of Delta’s team, struggled with foul trouble all game. Norman, who typically plays big minutes for the Pioneers and sets the bar for effort and intensity, played only 19 minutes. He hard-fouled Doug Anderson on a pair of obvious dunks rather than getting out of the way, which is the norm.

Delta’s top performer was freshman guard Jody Hill who scored 19 points on 8-for-15 shooting. A.J. Thomas added 12 points and five assists, though he continues to struggle with turnovers. Against Mott and Henry Ford, the two best teams in the eastern conference, he has turned the ball over 12 times.

As a team Mott out-rebounded Delta 38-20. Couple that with nearly 60% accuracy from the field and you have the makings of a blowout.

    I think it was the Bears’ 10th win in a row… what did Norman get T’d for? I couldn’t see what happened. I’m too short to see over everyone while sitting down.

    Win streak started with Moraine Valley if I’m not mistaken.

    I guess he chucked the ball or something…not sure.
