The LCC women’s basketball team came out victorious 74-55 at home vs. Mott Community College on Monday, Dec. 13. The victory marks the second in a row for the Lady Stars.

The win comes after a lopsided victory vs Community Christian on Dec. 5.

LCC Head Coach Layne Ingram said his team played very well offensively, citing the upperclassman as a large reason.

“I thought we did a really good job of running our offense,” Ingram said. “I thought our sophomores stepped up and played great basketball.

The Lady Stars shot the lights out in the victory. As a team, LCC shot just over 44 percent from three-point range. Guard Riley Merryfield had six three-pointers of her own to help the tally.

Merryfield totaled 24 points to lead LCC, while guard/forward Alivia Densmore put up a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Center Skyy Lockhart scored 14 points to be the third Lady Star in double-digits.

The win avenged a 45-41 road loss on Nov. 14 to Mott Community College.

“Honestly, we should have won the first game,” Ingram said. “We missed 10 free throws down the stretch, a number of layups and box outs, and that was the difference in the game.

“This time, that was our focus – finishing, boxing out and making our free-throws. We played with good defensive intensity and that was the difference for us.”

The Lady Stars were without second-year forward Elysia Causley, who is tied for the team lead with a 13-point per game average.

Ingram spoke to the absence.

“She’s out with an ankle injury,” Ingram said. “Probably until conference season, which is too bad but we will continue to play hard and get better. And she’ll continue to be a leader off the court.”

The win over Mott Community College springs LCC to a record of 3-5, with conference play starting in January.

LCC will look to maintain the hot shooting and well-executed team basketball after two victories. LCC’s next game is at home vs St. Clair Community College on Thursday, Dec. 14.

LCC’s home games are currently played at Great Lakes Christian, located at 6211 W. Willow Hwy. in Lansing. It will be the continued temporary home of The Stars until the home gym in the Gannon Building of LCC’s main campus is open once again.
