ACC hurt by shooting troubles in defeat

ESCANABA–It was a difficult night shooting the basketball for the Alpena Community College men’s basketball team on Wednesday as they fell to Bay College by a final score of 86-67.

“Nothing went in during the first half. I was disappointed for the kids, especially after playing a good game on Monday, we just couldn’t buy a bucket tonight,” ACC head coach Mark Jacobs said.

The lumberjacks trailed 43-23 at the half and just had a rough night shooting the rock as they couldn’t get into a rhythm and find much offense.

“We weren’t taking bad shots and Bay was quick and played in your face defense. I saw some good things, but I need to step it up as a coach as well,” Jacobs said. “It’s a process, we gotta regroup, hold our heads high and our next game will really tell a lot about the character of our guys on this team.”

Michael Stuart led ACC with 26 points, Oliver Rice had 13 and Jameson Pierrelus had 12 points and 11 rebounds.

ACC will be back in action on Saturday when it travels to take on Muskegon Community College.
