Despite a 30-point effort from freshman guard Terrell White, the LCC men’s basketball team lost its last game of the season, 105-77, at Kellogg Community College on Saturday, Feb. 24.

This loss finishes the Stars’ season with an overall record of 10-16 and a conference record of 1-11. LCC, which played much of the season with just six players, finished the season with nine straight losses.

The Stars started the game off strong, going up 29-20 with nine minutes left in the first half. The host Bruins went on a 29-6 run for the last nine minutes of the first half, and led by 14 at halftime.

White led both teams in scoring with 30 points, knocking down five threes and shooting 57 percent from the field.

The leading scorer for the Bruins was Jakeem Cole with 26 points. He made six threes and shot 75 percent from three-point range.

Sophomore guard Jay Wallace was the second leading scorer for the Stars with 20 points. Freshman guard Devan Wilson contributed 13 points for LCC.

LCC Head Coach Mike Ingram said his team played well, but not having a bench was a huge problem.

“Zavier Thomason had a family emergency so we went down there with five players,” Ingram said. “It was going to be a tough game anyways, but with five it was really tough.”

The Stars came out in a zone for the first half to stay out of foul trouble. When the Bruins went on the run in the first half it was because they began knocking down threes after getting used to the zone.

Having lost multiple players throughout the season due to ineligibility or injury, Ingram said every single game was tough, but the Stars played hard every single game despite the ever-changing lineup and roster.

“We battled Saturday just like we battled all semester,” Ingram said. “We were good enough to compete but we didn’t have enough players to win and didn’t have a lot of room for error. Even though we ended on a nine-game losing streak, I think we easily could have been on a nine-game winning streak.”

Ingram said the women’s team was a big factor to the men’s team being able to keep its head up every game.

“We rode with the girls this year, who can win the championship,” Ingram said. “I don’t think we really had a chance to be down because they were always so positive with their approach to the games on the way down and back.”
