Home away from home: Mott goes 3-0 at Illinois jamboree

Posted: October 7, 2012 by Jared Field in JUCO

Flint is the only place Mott Community College wins in more than Danville, Illinois. Mott returned to the city in east central Illinois that annually hosts the national tournament on Sunday, where the team beat three very tough opponents.

The Bears beat Kankakee Community College in the first scrimmage, Illinois Central in the second and Lakeland (Illinois) in the third.

The Bears have one more jamboree on the preseason schedule next weekend in Kankakee (Illinois), just an hour south of Chicago. The team will also scrimmage Mid-Michigan CC and Albion College before the season opener on November 3rd at home against Grand Rapids.

Another one of the top teams at the jamboree was Owens (Ohio), coached by former University of Toledo and Mott assistant Dave Clark. The team is led by Justin Edmonds, former standout guard from Albion High School. Mott will play a home-away series with Owens this season.
