The LCC men’s basketball team played two games in the last three days, winning one and losing one.

The first game was against Oakland Community College on Saturday, Dec. 9 at LCC. The Stars won 106-86. Freshman guard Terrell White led the Stars with 28 points in the win.

The Stars were clicking offensively against Oakland, tying the most points they have scored in a game all season.

Four players finished the game with over 15 points. Sophomore guard Jay Wallace had 27 points, freshman forward Jamison Eklund finished with 18 and freshman guard Devan Wilson had 17.

On Monday, Dec. 11, LCC lost on the road to Mott Community College, 95-61. LCC Head Coach Mike Ingram said the Stars weren’t good enough against Mott.

“We were good but we needed to be really good,” Ingram said. “We competed some but did not compete for the whole game. But even though the report said it was a bad loss, they were a good team.”

Eklund led the Stars in scoring against Mott, finishing with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Wallace contributed with 13 points and freshman guard Lamont Green-Torbert finished with 12 points.

Mott outrebounded the Stars 52-32, helping the Bears to 28 more field goal attempts than the Stars.

Ingram said the stress of a rigorous schedule and finals affected some of his team members during the game.

“Mott hadn’t played in five days so they were really rested,” Ingram said. “We’re taking a day off all day Tuesday and then we’ll come in Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday and work.”

The Stars next game will be against Grand Rapids Community College on Saturday, Dec. 16. They will play again on Tuesday, Dec. 19 at home against Mid Michigan College, a top 10 team.

Ingram said he is looking forward to conference play after these games, and has high expectations.

“I think we're going to be one of the top teams,” Ingram said. “I expect us to compete for the conference championship, no doubt about it.”
