Mott sophomore Doug Anderson took what had been competitive game and blew it wide open tonight at Delta. Mott, now 22-2 on the season, trailed by a point at the half and looked to be on the ropes when sophomore Mike Brigham picked up his fourth foul early in the second half.

From that point on Anderson stepped up and completely dominated the game, finishing with 27 points, 10 rebounds and two assists in the 86-65 win.


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 — Mott Community College, fresh off a 17-point win over a solid Oakland CC squad, will lock up with Kirtland at the Steve Schmidt Gymnasium in Flint at 3 p.m. today.

Kirtland has an impressive 13-5 record, though only a 3-3 record in conference. Mott comes into the game at 17-2 overall and 5-1 in the conference.

Mott sophomore Mike Brigham should be in uniform today after missing the OCC game due to a violation of team rules. Mott is ranked no. 4 in the latest NJCAA national poll.

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.


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…)

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.
