Mott's sophomore point guard Demetrius Miller scored 18 points in the state championship win.

FLINT, Michigan — No. 1-ranked Mott Community College won its third game in four days on Saturday night, winning the JUCO state championship in a rout over Kalamazoo Valley, 83-55.

Mott was led by sophomore guards Sam Burton, Demetrius Miller and Marshawn Norris. Burton set the tone for the game in the first half, scoring nine of his team’s first 11 points. Burton finished with 21 points on nine shots, five rebounds and three assists. Miller did much of his damage in the second half, finishing with 18 points. Marshawn Norris, at all of 5-10, had a game-high nine rebounds to go with his 10 points.

Mott led by 17 points at the half and shot 54% from the field for the game.

Ken Gordon led KVCC, the champion of the MCCAA Western Conference, with 14.

The teams will now enter the regional playoffs after a first round bye. They will play on Friday night at home.

The regional playoffs are broken down into two regions, so there’s a chance the two teams could meet again in the national tournament if both make it.
