The LCC men’s basketball team dominated CBG 107-68 on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at their temporary home court at Great Lakes Christian College.
“I’m just really pleased with how far we’ve come,” LCC Head Coach Mike Ingram said. “We were almost there early, but the last few games it’s really clicked into the guys how we want to play.”
This win put the Stars’ overall record at 4-4.
“We were really aggressive tonight early, and really fast,” Ingram said. “I told the guys, ‘Hey I was kind of holding you guys back,’ because I want them to be organized. I want them to share the ball. But I think they’re realizing we’re in really good shape and we’re pretty fast and we’ve got some experience under our belt now.”
Sophomore Cole Krause led the Stars with 23 points.
“Cole was tough,” Ingram said. “Cole had 19 (points) in the first half. When Cole started listening to me a lot better, then the other guys started listening, so I think that’s where we’ve taken off at.”
Krause, sophomore Conner Bush and freshman Thomas Dodd each grabbed six rebounds for LCC. Sophomore Freddy Johnson and freshman Nate Lott II each had three assists for the Stars.
“Coming out, all the guys (were) super energetic, playing hard defense (and) offense,” Krause said. “These guys have been playing their butts off on defense and I’m really proud of them.”
The Stars are scheduled to play against Mott Community College on Monday, Dec. 12 at their temporary home court at Great Lakes Christian College, located at 6211 W. Willow Hwy. Admission is $5 at the door or free for LCC students with ID. Action starts at 7:30 p.m.
“I just think that we’re getting better, and I always thought that we were pretty good, even when we didn’t win some games,” Ingram said. “But they did have to calm down a little bit and start listening to me and the other coaches.”
