FLINT, Michigan — Most expected Mott Community College, with 11 new players on its roster, to struggle with consistency early on; and, with a few exceptions, they’ve met that expectation so far this season.

That being said, the Bears are still 10-2 and appear poised to hit a mid-season stride like so many of Steve Schmidt’s great teams of the recent past.

Tonight, the Bears turned in a tremendous all-around effort against Jackson and didn’t look like a team full of newbies.


Pretty good win for the Bears without their best guard sophomore Bobby Lewis. From Hotbed Hoops:

FLINT, Michigan — The Mott Community College Bears haven’t dealt with a whole lot of adversity so far this season.

Save for their lone blemish on the road against Kalamazoo Valley, the Bears have been winning games going away.

And then came Saturday.

The Bears were forced to scratch and claw their way to an 81-72 victory over Grand Rapids without two of their top guards, sophomore Bobby Lewis and freshman Demetrius Miller.

Miller was out with bronchitis and Lewis played only six minutes in the game with a lingering bad back.

Just for kicks, I thought it would be fun to rank my top 10 favorite players that I’ve covered in five seasons as GLH editor. Keep in mind that these aren’t (necessarily) the best players I’ve covered, just the ones I’d love to go back and cover again.

Ah, l’ll just level with you: I love lists.

(This is ironic.)

10.) Jared and Aaron List, Frankenmuth: High-energy players who seemed to love the game as much or more than anyone on the court.

9.) Jonathon Jones, Okemos and Oakland University: A relative unknown as a junior, Jones had a flair for the dramatic and has become one of the best players to come out of Lansing this decade.


Schoolcraft saw a lot of this on Saturday, as Mott’s freshman forward Doug Anderson accounted for six of the team’s nine dunks:

Mott's Sam Burton looks upcourt against Lansing.

From Hotbed Hoops:

LANSING, MichiganSteve Schmidt couldn’t lose this one.

Mott’s longtime head coach was raised in Lansing, played high school basketball at Waverly High School and even helped coach Lansing Community College to the NJCAA national championship in 1988.

The ’88 LCC squad was honored at halftime in front of a larger-than-normal Homecoming crowd that couldn’t help but remember the good old days.

Schmidt’s Bears dismantled the Stars in the first half on the strength of sophomore sharpshooter Bobby Lewis‘ six 3-pointers and cruised to a 67-43 victory.

The no. 5-ranked Mott Community College Bears will renew their rivalry tonight at 7:30 p.m. on the road against Lansing Community College.

The Bears come into the contest at 3-1, fresh off a near-blowout victory over Sinclair (Ohio) on Saturday afternoon. Mott has gotten the best of Lansing more times than not over the past several years, but this matchup is almost always competitive.
