The Red Hawks entered into their third game of the week as they traveled to Schoolcraft College and fell short losing 68-78.
The first half was a back and forth battle for the men as they were even up by four points at one point in the game. It was the tenacity of the Ocelots that went unwavering that led to the Red Hawks leaving the court down by six (34-40).
Although the lead was small, Schoolcraft ran with it in the second half. The Red Hawks had difficulty defending the interior as the Ocelots were able to control the boards and finish their plays on the inside. Lake Michigan did not bode as well, as they could not produce plays to connect with the basket and ended the game with a 68-78 loss.
James Smith (SO/Chicago, IL) was the point leader with 18 as Deion Gatson (SO/Cassopolis, MI) had 16 and Ajani Parker (FR/Aurora, IL ) came up with 10 points for the men.
The Red Hawks will host Delta Community College on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm.
