The Grand Rapids Community College women’s basketball team defeated Glen Oaks Community College 62-50, Wednesday, improving to 8-5 on the season.
Head Coach Dave Glazier thought the team played well, especially on offense and even though they didn’t shoot well, they “still took good looks” and “that’s what you want to do at the end of the day,” according to Glazier.
“They stuck to the gameplan,” Glazier said. “We attacked and played strong. We took open shots and that’s basically what you need to do.”
Glazier said the team still needs to improve on defense.
“We played smart defense,” Glazier said. “We still need to get better on defense as we have yet to put four quarters worth together this season … we need to play better on defense because that gives our girls more confidence and they play better.”
The team is missing starting point guard, freshman Allazae Lloyd, who hasn’t played for the past few games due to academic ineligibility . The team has also “battled some sickness” this season too, resulting in a “lack of energy” according to Glazier.
“We hope to see her back in action this Friday,” Glazier said about Lloyd. “It’s really going to be a gametime decision.”
The team will face Lake Michigan College at 5:30 Friday, Jan. 13, at the Ford Fieldhouse.
