By Julie Newell
Men’s basketball season is well underway and the LCC Stars are packing heat.
In their latest game against St. Clair County Community College on Wednesday, Nov. 20 in the Gannon Gym, the LCC Stars defended their home court, winning 71-66.
Sophomore Darious Young led LCC with 21 points and nine rebounds. Sophomore Skyler Wilson led the Stars with four assists.
The win brought the Stars’ season record to 4-1.
According to LCC Head Coach Mike Ingram, the Stars were 0 for 10 in the first half of the game on three-point shot attempts. He said in the second half, sophomore Tevin Ali provided a spark.
“I think Tevin Ali woke up for us,” Ingram said. “(He) made some big plays (and) had a couple ‘and ones.’”
The Stars’ season started with a 108-63 win against Aquinas College Nov. 7 at LCC.
The Stars only loss this season through Nov. 21 was at Cuyahoga Community College on Nov. 16, 58-53.
The Stars won against Owens Community College Nov. 14, 89-70 and against Olivet College, 101-67, Nov. 9, both in the Gannon Gym.
“We’re a good team,” Ingram said. “We can battle (and) we got the players.”
The Stars were scheduled to play at Parkland College on Saturday, Nov. 23 and at Delta College on Monday, Dec. 2.
