No.1 Mott downs archrival Lansing, 89-62

Posted: December 20, 2011 by Jared Field in JUCO

The no. 1-ranked Mott Community College Bears are now 10-0 after Monday night’s win over a struggling Lansing squad, 89-62. The win is Mott’s second this season over its archrival.

The Bears, quite clearly, are starting to come into their own. Early in the season, Mott survived a few scares to good teams including Grand Rapids and Jackson; entering the holiday break, however, this looks like a team that’s very deserving of its position atop the national poll.

Against Lansing, Mott was led by Chicago freshman Kory Billups, who scored a season-high 26 points with eight rebounds. I don’t think a lot of people know what Mott has in Billups, but soon they’ll know. Billups was a big-time player at Crane Tech, the same high school that produced NBA guard Sherron Collins. Billups actually led his high school team to a supersectional in Illinois last March for the first time since Collins did it in 2005.

Mott will return to action on December 29th, at home versus Lake Michigan CC.
