FLINT, Michigan — For the second consecutive game, no. 1-ranked Mott played without its top scorer, sophomore guard John Taylor; and for the second consecutive game, it didn’t matter too much.

The Bears scored at will in the first half against Delta College on Saturday afternoon en route to a 100-74 victory over the Pioneers.

In reality, it wasn’t even that close. Mott doubled Delta up in the first half, shooting 68 percent from the floor to lead 58-29 at the break.

Led by freshmen Ralph Eason, Kory Billups and Jakob Perry, Mott cashed in on nearly every fast-break opportunity; and the opportunities were plentiful throughout the game, as the Bears forced 26 turnovers.

Mott’s trio of guards combined for 70 points on 24-of-42 from the field. Eason also added seven assists.

Mott’s 6-8 sophomore forward Robert Littlejohn is slowly starting to emerge as a serviceable big man for the Bears. Littlejohn, who played sparingly as a freshman, has had several strong outings this season. On Saturday, he scored eight points (4-of-4) and pulled down four rebounds in just eight minutes.

Sophomore forward Walter Davis (another Memphis product), also made all four of his shot attempts. He scored 10 points with eight rebounds and had several impressive slams.

Delta was led by sophomore guard Jody Hill, one of the top JUCO scorers in the nation. Hill scored 26 points despite being bottled up for much of the first half. Sophomore forward Tyler Dwyer, a workhorse big man, came off the bench to score 20 points with 10 rebounds.

Mott will try to continue its unbeaten streak on Monday night on the road against rival Henry Ford Community College.

    Still waiting on the big story from the HFCC Mott game on Monday night. What is Mott now 3-7 vs. Henry Ford in the last ten games. And their latest hype job player John Taylor wasn’t very impressive either. You guys just better be glad that the regionals are at Mott this year because if they were at HFCC you’d be better off staying in Flint.

    • Haha … I’m still waiting for one of you HFCC supporters to start a site that covers your team rather than whining in comments sections or on message boards about the lack of coverage your team receives. WordPress and Blogger are free. Get to work my man.

      I wasn’t at the game. I was watching the Alabama vs. LSU game. Sorry to disappoint you.

    That’s ok. You knew what the outcome was going to be so you stayed home. Smart move. Same outcome as the last four times Mott has traveled to HFCC.

    They’ve ended Mott’s season 2 of the last 3 times they’ve played in the playoffs. Better hope they get upset this year too, so they don’t make it three of four. Maybe the Mott kids just don’t have the toughness to match the Detroit area kids when playing head to head? Looks like Mott often get’s “punked” vs HFCC to me.

      Has Henry Ford ever done anything in the postseason? Henry Ford’s whole focus is beating Mott. The focus at Mott is winning championships. Where that’s concerned, Henry Ford can’t even compare. The Hawks went and got exposed in the national tournament.
