Mott Community College, on the strength of a 29-10 run in the second half, blew out Kalamazoo Valley on Wednesday night in Flint, 91-58.
Both teams started off rusty after a delayed start to the game. After the sluggish start, the Bears simply overpowered KVCC. Mott (9-2) led by 30 midway through the second half paced by the play of sophomore guard Diandre Wilson.
“It was a pretty good second half but we just didn’t have it at first,” said Mott Head Coach Steve Schmidt to MRSN. “It was a good win. We just need one more and then we can enjoy Christmas.”
The contest was the first of five consecutive home games for Mott in the next three weeks. The Bears must remain focused in preparation for the January 4 clash against unbeaten Oakland CC. The Raiders are the only team in Michigan the Bears are looking up at in the NJCAA national poll.
Wilson led all scorers with 22. Marcus Cole added 16 and Shawn Pardee 11.
The Bears will take on Mid Michigan CC at 3 pm Saturday at Ballenger Fieldhouse. Listen live on the Michigan Regional Sports Network.
