MCC Knocks Off Trinity Bible College

Manhattan, KS - The MCC men's basketball picked up a 107-88 victory over Trinity Bible College in their first home game of 2016.  The Thunder got off to a quick start and opened up an 11-0 lead.  MCC threatened to blow the game open in the first half but strong three-point shooting (9-19 in the first half) kept things close.  A late spurt at the end of the first half gave MCC a 58-44 halftime lead.  In the second half the Thunder went on a 8-2 run to increase their advantage to 66-46, but again Trinity responded with a 10-0 run of their to close the gap to 66-56.  After MCC stretched the lead out to 78-63 with just over ten minutes remaining, Trinity responded with one more run to close the gap to 78-71.  However that would be as close as the Lions would get and MCC would cruise to the win from that point.

KJ Dobbins led six players in double figures with 20 points.  Nick Babalola scored 17 points, while Mike White came off the bench to score 16 points.  MCC returns to action January 12 as they head to Lincoln to take on the Union College Warriors.
