The LCC men’s basketball team lost big at home vs. Kalamazoo Valley Community College on Wednesday, Jan. 18, 104-80.

The first half brought hope to the Stars, as it was 46-43 KVCC at half time. In the second half KVCC opened the lead up with a 58-37 half.

Stars Head Coach Mike Ingram spoke about his team’s performance.

“I don’t think it was a tough loss, because you know, we didn’t play that tough,” Ingram said. “That team was better than us tonight. They played harder than us tonight.”

Ingram said his team’s organization was a large reason for the loss.

“I thought I had them prepared, maybe it’s me, that we’re missing something there because our organization is really bad,” Ingram said. “When you’re a team like us and you run into a team like that, you have to be organized. You have to come down and run some offense, then you have to go back on defense, and you have to do everything right.”

Sophomore guard/forward Connor Bush scored 19 points and six rebounds to lead LCC. Guard/forward Cole Krause added 15 points. Guard Chris Robinson scored 12 points for the Stars.

Ingram said there are still positives to take from the loss despite its severity.

“I think one of the positives you get out of it is you just get a lot of guys a chance to play,” Ingram said. “And then you get to see if guys can help you. You know what I mean, and that’s what the thing was, we just wanted to make sure and see what guys can play.”

“I think a couple of guys came off of the bench and did alright,” Ingram said. “I thought Chris (Robinson) played hard, he played well, especially for someone who hadn’t been playing a lot. I thought Zach (Berry) came in and showed that, ‘Hey, maybe coach, you need to give me an opportunity.’”

The loss drops the Stars to 0-2 in conference play after a 78-74 loss to Glen Oaks Community College on Jan 14.

After a 105-74 Thursday win vs Aquinas JV, the Stars record moved to 8-8 overall, with an upcoming conference affair at Ancilla College on Saturday, Jan. 21.
