Grand Rapids Community College Raider fell to 0-2 on the season, after losing to the Mid Michigan Community College Lakers 89-71.
The Raider offense struggled all night to run an offense with any fluidity. GRCC shot just 38 percent in the first half from the field before rounding off at 40 percent for the game.
The Raiders made a late push in the second half behind Myles Ervins’s 17 points and five rebounds, but the Lakers offense was just too much to handle.
One of bright spots for GRCC was that they had five players in double figures for the night: Claude Finley (12), Jamier Mix (12), Andre Patcher (11), Abdul McGraw (10) and Ervin’s 17.
The Lakers were led led by T.J. Johnson who had 22 points and 11 rebounds on the night. He also shot a perfect 14 of 14 from the free throw line. Mikhail Miles also had 17 points and seven rebounds on 6 of 11 shooting for the Laker backcourt.
The Raiders will return to action at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 19th when they face Oakland Community College at the Ford Fieldhouse.
