Jayhawks Gain Revenge At Lorain County CC

ELYRIA, Ohio — On Nov. 30, TJ Steele scored 40 points on 15-of-21 shooting, including 6-of-10 3-pointers, as Lorain County CC handed Jamestown CC at 96-89 NJCAA loss at the Physical Education Complex.

Monday night on the Commodores home court, the Jayhawks wanted to make sure Steele did not go off again.

They mainly have Derek Ice to thank that he didn’t.

Lorain County CC’s speedy 5-foot-8 guard scored just 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting, including 1 of 5 from 3-point range, and Jamestown CC received double-figure scoring from four of its five starters en route to an 89-62 victory.

“This was a huge revenge game for us. We played with a lot of passion and a lot of intensity,” Jamestown CC coach George Sisson said. “I put Derek Ice on him and he stuck to him all night. It was the hardest 16 points he ever got in his life.”

The Jayhawks built a 50-28 halftime advantage on the backs of Brandon Kemp, Tyler Moffe and Jean Toussaint, who had 11, 10 and 10 points, respectively, in the opening 20 minutes.

“Losing that game in the first semester was a bitter pill that did not sit well with any of my guys,” Sisson said. “To get after them on their own court was another really great win at the start our second semester.”

Toussaint finished with a 21 points and a game-high 17 rebounds while Moffe added 21 points and four rebounds. Ice had 15 points, four rebounds and three steals while Kemp added 14 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Steele was the only player in double figures for Lorain County CC while Kyle Fayne and Jake Schultz led in rebounding with seven apiece.

The Jayhawks finished 36 of 64 (56.3 percent) from the field, including 6 of 10 (60.0 percent) from 3-point range while the Commodores were 24 of 73 (32.9 percent), including 4 of 19 (21.1 percent) from long range. Jamestown CC also won the rebounding battle, 49-36.
