The Grand Rapids Community College women’s basketball team improved their record to 9-6 with a 55-41 victory over Kellogg Community College Friday night.
GRCC’s offense has been a work in progress all year long with a young group.
“We continue to be patient with our offense, we let it guide us,” said Head Coach Dave Glazier. “We talked a lot about running the offense and playing it together as a team.”
The Raiders also have gotten a slight bite of the injury bug which has challenged the team.
“It changed our rotation, so more players had to play bigger minutes and have bigger roles,” Glazier said.
Freshman Guard Allazae Lloyd led the way for the Raiders with 18 points, five assists, six blocks and three steals.
Along with Freshman guard Claire Flewelling finishing with 10 points, four assists and two steals.
Moving forward the young team knows that improving their chemistry will only benefit them on the floor.
“From high school we were all starting players for our team, so when we come together and work as a team I think (we) just play better,” Flewelling said.
“The chemistry is great, we all get along really well. We know good chemistry will help play us play better on the floor,” King said.
The Raiders’ next game will be at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 25, at Kalamazoo Valley Community College.
