Knights’ national title hopes dashed

Sunday, March 25, 2012

 

Was it a great season? Absolutely. The only trouble is, someone has to end the year with a loss.

Mott Community College (Flint, MI) won its fourth NJCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Championship in program history Saturday night in Danville, IL with a 70-60 win over the Community College of Rhode Island.

The Bears, who were ranked No. 1 for the majority of the regular season, took a 29-23 lead at halftime and expanded it to double digits. MCC was comfortably out in front of the Knights for nearly the entire second half.

Tournament MVP John Taylor led the Bears with 23 points and six assists, while Ralph Eason added 22 points, six rebounds and five assists.

Mott’s four Division II national championships are the most of any college in men’s basketball. The Bears end the season at 35-1.

CCRI was led by Desmond Williams’ 16 points and six rebounds. He was instrumental in getting the Knights to the title game for the first time in school history by scoring 41 points in CCRI’s overtime win over Lakeland Community College (Ohio) in the semifinals. The Knights end their 2012 campaign at 31-5.
