ESCANABA–The Muskegon Community College men’s basketball team traveled north to Bay Community College in Escanaba on Saturday and suffered a 90-56 defeat to the Norse.

The Jayhawks are still battling through  injuries with starters Jacob May and Jacob Mueller being sidelined. No return date has been set for them to return. Unfortunately, Muskegon lost another key starter Jarvin Graham (Chicago,IL) with a back injury during the first half of the game. Reserve player Kaden George  (Spring Lake) played through a shoulder injury until the middle of the 2nd half, then he had to be sidelined for the rest of the game.

First half shooting haunted the Jayhawks. Muskegon Community College shot thirty two percent from the field and twenty seven percent from beyond the arc.

Bay Community College raced out to a 49-26 lead by the halftime break and never looked back as they racked up a second half scoring advantage of 41-30.

Vern Nash III and Jadakiss Lewis led the Jayhawks with 14 points apiece. Lewis also grabbed five rebounds. Other key contributors included Zalio Harris with eight points and seven rebounds while Brodie Fogus chipped in with nine points and three rebounds.
