The Jayhawks added to their first half lead outscoring the Chargers 17-6 in the second stanza to take a commanding 35-16 halftime lead.

The Jayhawks put the game away in the third quarter racking up a 26-11 scoring advantage. Ancilla would have the upper hand in the final ten minutes of play 17-14.
Sisman finished with a game high 19 points, 4 assists and 5 steals. She was joined in double digits by Ally Sieber (Reeths-Puffer) who tossed in 10 points to go along with 4 rebounds. Close behind was Trina Lewis (Reeths Puffer) with 9 points and 7 rebounds.
MCC would shoot only 37.3 percent from the field going just 28-of-75.
“It was another great team win tonight, scrappy defense causing the opponent to have three shot clock violations along with jumping into the passing lane getting some quick tip-outs on a fast break helped out us get ahead early,” said Jayhawk head coach Jason Cooper. “We still need to stay focused on our principles to continue to become our best.”
MCC improves its record to 7-1 overall and is 1-0 in conference action. The Jayhawks will host Kellogg Community College on Wednesday, January 12 at 5:30pm.
