Over the next couple weeks, GLH will provide updates on Flint area basketball players at the college level. Today, we’ll start with JUCOs.

If you know of other kids playing at the JUCO level this season who aren’t listed, leave names in the comments or e-mail patrickhayes13(at)gmail(dot)com and I’ll add them. (more…)

FLINT, Michigan — It was a put up or shut up type of game for no. 4-ranked Mott Community College on Saturday versus rival Henry Ford.

One of the Bears’ two losses this season came at the hands of HFCC on the road back in January, when the Hawks scored on the final play of the game to win by one.

The cream rose to the top the second time around as Mott soundly beat the Hawks, 81-67, in front of a packed house at the Steve Schmidt Gymnasium.


FLINT, Michigan — Sophomore Mike Brigham scored 17 points and pulled down nine rebounds in 18 minutes of play to lead Mott to an 83-48 victory over Macomb Saturday afternoon.

The Bears led by 17 at the half and continued the onslaught in the second, led by sophomore guard Demetrius Miller. The lefty point guard connected on four of his six 3-point attempts in the game to finish win 14.

Doug Anderson added 15 on 6-for-10 shooting.

For Macomb’s top scorer, sophomore Alan Hardy, was held below his average but still finished with 18. He scored a dozen from the charity stripe. Hardy was Macomb’s only double-figure scorer.

Another bright spot for Mott was the play of sophomore sharpshooter Ricky Rowse, who connected on two 3-pointers and another shot with his foot on the line.

Mott returns to action on Saturday against St. Clair.

Austin Harper, Glen Oaks

Here’s a look at the top 15 players in the MCCAA through half a season. This list is one part production and another part potential. So, for instance, Austin Harper may not have as much potential as Jamie Stewart (that’s debatable), but his production is insane. The comment section is open for suggestions.

1.) Austin Harper, sophomore guard, Glen Oaks: Harper, a WMU transfer, has been putting on a show so far this season. He is averaging 16 points per game with 11 assists. Harper, a sneaky good athlete from west Michigan, is shooting better than 60 percent from the floor and 65 percent from 3-point range. This was going to be Jamie Stewart’s spot until I saw those field goal percentages — that’s incredible for a guard.

2.) Jamie Stewart, sophomore guard, Henry Ford: Stewart is a reliable 3-point shot away from being a prototype shooting guard. He is ultra athletic with the ability to create shots for himself and his teammates. His mid-range game is impressive as well. He is averaging 17 points, eight rebounds and three assists this season. He will be playing at D-1 Montana State next season.

3.) Mike Brigham, sophomore forward, Mott: Brigham has actually been less productive than many had expected (13 points and eight rebounds). Even so, he’s still a dynamic prospect who has improved his shooting and ballhandling since last season. Look for Brigham to have a monster second half. He started lighting it up over the some and impressed some scouts in Vegas. He has at least six D-1 offers from low to mid-major schools.


Henry Ford had the ball with nine seconds left. Sophomore forward Terrance Tubbs took the ball the length of the floor and scored in the paint with less than a second remaining.

Mott led by seven with less than four minutes remaining, but couldn’t hold the lead. Tubbs led Henry Ford with 20 points. Jamie Stewart, HFCC’s leading scorer, had 16.

Demetrius Miller scored 25 points for Mott.

East Lansing freshman Steve Haney, Jr.

I had the opportunity to see a lot of top tier recruits this weekend and rather than writing individual game stories where everyone already knows the result, I just thought I would do a quick rundown of the individuals.

Deanthony Arnett 6’0′ Junior Saginaw High

He’s probably the fastest point guard in the state, period. Even though he missed the game winner against Powers on Sunday, it should be noted that Arnette made it almost the length of the court in three seconds flat. This kid has football offers from almost everywhere, but he’s legit on the hardwood as well.

Travon Baker  5’10”  Sophomore  Detroit Consortium

Travon is a sick point guard.  Ultra quick with the strength and touch to finish in the lane.  Needs to work on his shot mechanics, but the kid is one of the top sophomore point guards out there.    (more…)

Here’s the game recap from Hotbed Hoops…

Game notes

— The best player on the floor tonight was former Flint Central standout Demetrius Miller. He scored 14 points with five rebounds and four assists. More importantly, he played 30 minutes worth of defense on Owens’ best guard. I’m somewhat surprised by the speed of his development into a top-tier point guard. He’s the best point guard Mott has right now.


I’m just a reporter, right? What exactly would I know about a storyline?

I just assumed that Mott’s loss of Torian Oglesby on Wednesday night to the flu was the big story, the obvious lede to Mott’s stunning 75-70 loss to archrival Lansing on Wednesday night.

I guess not. My line of post-game questioning compelled Mott head coach Steve Schmidt to put me right in my place: “That’s not the story.”


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.


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