The LCC men’s basketball team dominated in a blowout win against Beacon College Thursday, Nov. 16, winning 105-82. This improves the Stars’ record to 4-1 on the season.

LCC controlled the game from the beginning. The Stars jumped out to a 55-29 lead at halftime.

Sophomore guard Jay Wallace led LCC in scoring with 29 points, shooting 69 percent from the field.

Freshman forward Jamison Eklund contributed 24 points for LCC and freshman forward Zavier Thomason finished with a double-double, with 15 points and 13 rebounds.

Coming off the bench, freshman guard Terrell White scored 16 points for LCC, knocking down a three and making all of his free throws.

Progress continues for the team, according to LCC Head Coach Mike Ingram, and Thursday’s big win gave him the opportunity to play more players.

“We’re getting better and better every time we step on the court,” Ingram said. “We’re giving our team the scouting report, but then were saying, ‘Let’s do what we do.’”

Although the game was a blowout win, Eklund said the Stars’ attitude did not change.

“We approached the second half the same way we approach any other game; hard defense and keep a steady pace,” Eklund said.

While the win was convincing, the Stars gave up 53 points in the second half compared to 29 in the first. Eklund said going into the next game, they will look to stay focused in the second half.

“We’re looking to improve on our second-half defense,” Eklund said. “We gave up a lot more in the second half, but our offense stayed steady the whole game.”

The Stars’ next game will be at home, Saturday, Nov. 18 against Jackson College at 3 p.m.

Ingram said he is looking forward to this game because Jackson College is a big and athletic team.

Ingram said is team needs to be focused.

“We’ve just got to stay contained to ourselves and not get super over-aggressive where we get out of position and hurt each other,” Ingram said.
