11/28/2016

MACC 91, LINK YEAR PREP 80
The Greyhounds Men’s Basketball Team defeated Link Year Prep 91-80 in their opening game of the Midwest Bone and Joint Classic in Moberly, Missouri. After falling behind 33-29, Moberly came back to lead 46-38 at the half. Link Year Prep got hot from the perimeter and closed to within 80-76 with four minutes remaining before Moberly sewed the game up with a couple of lay-ins and free throws.

6’6” sophomore forward Leonard Harper-Baker led the Greyhounds in scoring with

21 points and 13 rebounds while 6’2” sophomore guard Brandon Better also scored 21 points and sophomore guard Delfincko Bogan added 18 points and 6 assists. 6’7” sophomore post DeMarco Owens rounded out the double figure scoring with 10 points and 9 rebounds. Rylan Bargonse led Link Year with 21 points while Jones added 15 points.

“Link Year Prep had already defeated five junior college teams this year, so we knew it would be a tough game,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “However, we once again should have put the game away the second half and didn’t do it. We showed some toughness and perserverance at the end, but must become a better 40 minute team.”

After being behind 43-39 at the half, Moberly came back behind the strong offensive play of PG Jabari Antwine to grab a 76-64 lead with 8 minutes remaining. Highland then went on another roll and got to within 78-75 with three minutes remaining. However, MACC closed the game on a 16-9 run to post a 94-86 victory.

Antwine, a 6’0” sophomore guard, led the Greyhounds in scoring with 23 points while Better contributed 20 points. Bogan contributed 13 points, DeMarco Owens had 11 points and 10 rebounds while 6’5” sophomore wing Mar’Qywell

Jackson added 10 points and 6 rebounds. Highland was lead in scoring by guard Deang Deang with 29 points while DeAngelo Jackson and Nate Bethel had 13 points each.

Moberly improved their record to 9-0 while Highland dropped to 6-2 for the season.

“We knew coming in this would be our toughest game,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “Their backcourt of Deang and Jackson was without the doubt the quickest, best attacking guard tandem we’ve played against. However, I was really pleased with our players ability to hang tough, play possession by possession basketball

and win a game against a very good team. Great November game.”

Moberly will return to action Sunday, December 4 in the Missouri-Illinois CC Shootout as they play Wabash Valley at 2:00 PM.
