Zachary Pangborn led GRCC’s men’s basketball team to victory over Glen Oaks Community College on Wednesday, finishing with 31 points as the Raiders won 105-97.
Pangborn made 6-of-10 from three-point range while shooting 9-of-22 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line.
No other Raider came anywhere close to Pangborn’s total, but every Raider who hit the floor that night finished with plenty of points as six total players recorded double digit scoring totals. Gregory Robinson paired his 10 points with 12 rebounds. Ca’Nas Coleman finished the game with 10 rebounds with nine points and led the team in assists with seven.
Glen Oaks’ Mike Barnfield and David Miller finished the game with 25 and 27 points, respectively. Jaquantay Rouser added 22 points and eight rebounds. Adam Scott finished with 18 points and eight rebounds.
With the win, GRCC improves to 8-5 in the West for fourth place — a half a game behind third-place Lake Michigan and one game ahead of fifth-place Muskegon Community College.
The Raiders visit Lake Michigan College at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16.
