MUSKEGON—The Muskegon Community College Women’s Basketball team went into the holiday break on a high note as they made quick work of Henry Ford College in a lopsided 113-59 game.

It was all MCC as they jumped out to a 29-5 lead after the first ten minutes of play and extended that lead outscoring Henry Ford 27-22 in the second stanza for a 56-27 halftime lead.

The Jayhawks didn’t let up in the second half as they kept running and gunning, scoring at will, both from inside the paint and from 3-point land, racking up a 29-17 third quarter scoring advantage and 28-15 advantage in the fourth quarter.

MCC shot 50.6 percent from the field, connecting on 44-of-87 shots from the field, including 15-of-35 shots from 3-point territory. The Jayhawks were perfect from the free throw line going 10-for-10.
