Lake Michigan holds off Glen Oaks 100-92

BENTON HARBOR — The Lake Michigan College men’s basketball team defeated visiting Glen Oaks Community College 100-92.

It appeared to be an evenly matched game as both teams battled to obtain an advantage on the evening.

The first 20 minutes went back and forth with the difference being an Austin Dukesherer (Grandville) basket at the buzzer. Dukesherer was able to find an opening with three seconds remaining and threw up a half-court shot that connected and put the men up by one 41-40.

The Red Hawks outshot 36 percent compared to the Raiders 20 percent from outside of the perimeter. But Glen Oaks dominated shooting from the field with 50 percent compared to Lake Michigan’s 38 percent.

The second half was much like the first, but Lake Michigan began to obtain an advantage as it was able to score and picked up their defense to shut down the Raider’s offense.

With a few minutes remaining, LMC held a 10-point lead and only allowed Glen Oaks two more points.

Niles sophomore Gavin Rasler led the Red Hawks 28 points, six rebounds and four, while Cassopolis’ Deion Gatson led the men in rebounds with nine to go along with 17 points. Dukesherer, Bryce Saxton (Cassopolis) and Adrien Bucha-Moore (Dowagiac) all had 12 points. The men will hosted their final conference home game Monday.

They honored their sophomores during this game.

LMC is now in third place with a 10-6 Michigan Community College Athletic Association Western Conference record and a 14-13 overall record.
