ACC on receiving end of blowout losses at Mott
FLINT — Down to just six players, the Alpena Community College women’s basketball team was in a tough spot and were on the unfortunate end of a 110-56 loss to Mott Community College on Saturday.
Injuries have taken its toll on the Lumberjacks as Alpena fell behind early and couldn’t recover as the Bears took advantage of the numbers game and coasted to a lopsided victory.
“The girls played well for only have six players,” ACC coach Bobby Allen said. “We played hard and that is all I can ask for. The size was a problem for us throughout the entire game, but we never gave up and I’m happy for that as a coach.”
Three Lumberjacks scored in double figures.
Brooke Nguyen paced Alpena with 18 points. Karah Dunson finished with 17 points and made five threes and Mollie Girard added 13 points in the losing effort.
The ACC men didn’t fare much better as they lost to Mott by a final of 96-56.
Like the women, the men fell behind early against a talented Mott team led by Division1 product and University of Akron bound Taylor Currie who had his way with the Lumberjacks.
Currie entered the game, leading the conference in scoring and poured in a game high 24 points.
“We just couldn’t get in sync today. We fell into some of our old bad habits,” ACC coach Mark Jacobs said. “Our makeup game with them on Monday can’t come soon enough. We’ll regroup and be ready to go.”
Both the men and women will be back in action today against the same Mott teams.
