No. 1 Mott blows out Jackson on the road, 87-60

Posted: December 7, 2011 by Jared Field in High School

Call this one a signature early-season win for the no. 1-ranked Mott Community College Bears. Mott played its fourth game in six days on Wednesday night on the road against Jackson. The Jets, arguably the top team in the MCCAA Western Conference, gave Mott its most competitive game of the season last month in Flint; but, what a difference a month makes.

After a miserable first half, the Bears (8-0) ran roughshod over Jackson in the second half en route to a  87-60 win.

The Bears outrebounded the Jets by nearly a 2-to-1 margin in the second half leading to a 37-5 run over 15 minutes. The Bears have a propensity to score in this way, having started Monday’s game against LCC with a 30-2 run. Mott held Jackson scoreless for nearly six minutes in the second half, sparked by a great defensive effort from newcomers Kory Billups and Kortez Ross.

John Taylor scored 24 points for Mott. Taylor has led Mott in scoring in all of its eight games this season. Walter Davis also chipped in with 11 rebounds.

“We are really pleased with this effort,” said Mott head coach, Steve Schmidt. “Our guys are battle-tested early. What a group of warriors. I’m really proud of them.”
