WATERTOWN, Wisc- The Great Lakes Christian College Men's Basketball team found themselves in a dog fight Friday night as they took on the Maranatha Baptist University Sabercats. MBU came out in a big way with a massive home crowd to watch their team get their crack at the #1 team in the country. GLCC came into the game 12-10 and 7-0 in NCCAA play on the season with a big matchup against #2 Grace Christian University on Tuesday lingering. The Crusaders jumped out early on the Sabercats building a 9-2 lead and eventually a 24-14 lead over MBU in the first half, but with every basket the home fans would will the Sabercats with their energy, and MBU fed off of it. They would respond with a 28-12 run to close the half to take 42-36 lead at the break. Despite the lead the Crusaders forced nine turnovers and shot just 38 percent from the floor in the first half.
In the second half the Crusaders would battle to get over the hump with the Sabercats. Every time GLCC got to the hump MBU made a big play by hitting a three or breaking the Crusader pressure for a layup. GLCC breakthrough came in the final five minutes of the 2nd half. Jalen Huff and Trent Temple at the top of the press caused big turnover and Isiah Reed hit a big three to give the Crusaders the lead. Elijah Kess hit a three with a minute to go to put the Crusaders up for good. JaQuin Jones hit four big free throws in the final 30 seconds to ice the game for the Crusaders.Trent Temple led five Crusaders in double figures with 20 points and 11 rebounds. GLCC would win 90-85 over MBU to improve to 13-10 overall and 8-0 in NCCAA play.
Inside the Box Score:
What Coach Says:
"This was really good for our team to go through tonight. Maranatha is a very hard place to win at, and they came out energized. Obviously being #1 everyone wants to give you their best shot to knock you off. I did not think we were at our best tonight. I thought we really struggled for much of the game, but hungry dogs find a way. This team found a way to win even when we were not at our best, that is really important for this group as we are preparing for the stretch run. This was our trap game. I know our minds were not in Wisconsin last night, which is on me as the coach I have to prepare our guys better and not allow them to look ahead. We were fortunate to win tonight, but we will take it and get better from this experience." On free throw shooting, "We put pressure on them to guard us, that was important to our offensive attack. We did a great job putting them in tough positions to guard by getting downhill."
On matchup vs Grace on Tuesday, "Obviously whenever we play Grace it is always a really good game and a really big game. This is #1 vs #2 and it has playoff seeding implications. I know Grace is going to come out ready to play. We are excited to go into another tough road environment and respond to the challenge. I believe in my group of guys."

'Prep Baseball Report' just recently released their D2 JUCO top 25 pre-season rankings. The Stars come in ranked number 9 in the country. The Lansing Community College baseball team will head south to the Central Florida area in 5 weeks to open up their season. Coach Keur is excited about this year's club and the group of guys he has.
"Rankings are great, and it's great to be recognized nationally for our team this year at Lansing Community College; but rankings don't guarantee success on the field", said Keur. "We're going to control what we can control at this point; which is continuing to work hard, and pushing each other to get better these next couple of months, to ensure that we're ready and prepared for the start of our season."
The Stars have a lot to be excited about as the 2020 season approaches. They will look to get their season started in Winter Haven, Florida as they take on Minnesota State CTC in their season opener on Sunday, March 8th.
Four of Lansing Community College baseball players were just recently ranked in Perfect Game's 2020 top 300 JUCO prospects in the country list.
Zach Fruit, a sophomore right handed pitcher and Eastern Michigan University commit comes in at the number 237th spot. Fruit has a solid frame, going about 6'4 205 lbs. His fastball has life and works anywhere from 89-93mph. He will have a huge roll for the Stars this year out of the pen, and closing out games.
Andrew Carson, a 6'2 195 lb. uncommitted sophomore comes in at 261st on the list. He is a University of Bowling Green transfer. Carson will have a key role for the Stars this year as a weekend starter. His fastball sits around 90mph, but has the ability to run it up to 93-94mph.
Ben Riffe, a right handed 6'3 200 lb. freshman is next on the list, coming in at 264. Riffe is coming off a Tommy John surgery in high school, and is fully healthy. He has an electric arm, which was on full display this Fall as he sat 88-91mph. Like Carson, he will look to have a big role as a weekend starter for the Stars this Spring.
Calvin Johnston comes in on the list at the 291st spot. Johnston is a very physical and athletic freshman. The 6'3 230 lb. Johnston will help the Stars this Spring both on the mound and with the bat. He has been up to 89mph on the mound and will add some power to the Stars lineup.
Other notable Players:
Seth Marano is a left handed pitcher who returns to Lansing Community College for his sophomore season after going 8-0 as a starter last year. Marano has committed to play at the University of Toledo next year.
Rhett Evans, a sophomore middle infielder and right handed pitcher, is committed to Northwood University for next year. Evans hit over .400 in 113 at bats last year, and will be a staple in the Stars lineup.
