Men’s basketball routs Davenport JV

The GRCC’s men’s basketball picked up its fourth win on Nov. 17, downing Davenport University’s JV Panthers 101-69.

GRCC’s effort was led by Curtis Davison, who finished the night with 30 points, nine rebounds and two assists in just over 21 minutes of play.

Every Raider on the team had the opportunity to play, with most seeing significant time on the floor. All but one team member finished the night having added some points to the scoreboard.

Ca’Nas Coleman and Gregory Robinson each finished the night with 10 points. Robinson added 10 rebounds to his point total to finish with the team’s only double-double.  Coleman’s 10 points paired nicely with eight rebounds while leading the team in assists with four.

Jesse Jordan led the Panthers with 23 points and nine rebounds, followed by Tate Ellifritz, who finished with 18 points and six rebounds. Former Raider Vince Relf was suited up for the Panthers as well. He finished the game with five points, three assists and two rebounds.

Both GRCC’s men’s and women’s teams host Hope College JV on Nov. 21 with the women getting the night started with a 5:30 p.m. tipoff. The men’s game will follow at 7:30 p.m.
