A barrage of three-point shots sparked the Marshalltown Community College men's basketball team midway through its contest with Indian Hills Community College on Wednesday night, but the Tigers came up short in the closing minutes, falling to the Warriors 79-71 at home. Jamir Coleman's (San Antonio, TX/Pro Vision) layup with 5:05 to play tied the game at 64-all, but the Warriors scored four-straight to pull ahead and their lead never relinquished as MCC dropped to 14-8 overall and 1-2 in Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC) play. Indian Hills improved to 18-4 overall and 3-1 in league play. Freshman Mohamed Thiam (Dekar, Senegal/Canarias) led five players in double-digits with 18 points. Brandon Simmons (F) (Harlem, NY/Teaneck) added 13 points and Soufiane Mensah (6'2''-G-94) (Nantes, France/Canarias) chipped in 12. Coleman and BJ Millard (Dunwoody, GA/Dunwoody) each scored 10 in the loss. The Tigers knocked down eight three-point shots on the night, including four from Thiam. The long-distance shooting kept MCC in the game as the Tiger defense limited the Warriors to just 1-11 from beyond the arc. In MCC's three conference games this season, its opponents are shooting just 20.0% (7-35) from three-point range. MCC held the Warriors, who received votes in this week's NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Poll, below their season average of 87.5 points per game and have limited each ICCAC foe below their season scoring average this season. The Tigers' big momentum shift came near the end of the first half against Indian Hills as MCC connected on four-straight three-point shots to end the half, capped by a buzzer-beating trey from Millard to take a 35-34 lead into halftime. Millard and Thiam each buried a three to open the second half and the Tigers held a 41-37 lead. A quick 9-0 run from the Warriors put the visitors back on top only to see MCC erase the deficit. Coleman scored eight of 10 points in less than three minutes to tie the game at 64, but it was Indian Hills who prevailed at the Student Activity Center. The Tigers travel to Northeast Community College to take on the Hawks at 7:00 PM on Saturday night. Courtesy of: marshalltown.prestosports.com
Juco guard Ty Lazenby commits to Sooners - 5 days ago

He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby(6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back champion... [read more]
He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby (6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back championships. But his size was in question so he opted for the juco route. The journey has paid off with the commitment to the Sooners. He was contacted by OU assistant coach Chris Crutchfield last Sunday and the visit was confirmed Tuesday evening after speaking with head coach Lon Kruger. Lazenby visited Penn State earlier this week and was set to visit Utah on Monday but never ruled out committing to the Sooners if everything fell into place. OU is getting a real OKPreps feel to its team right now. The 2016 class saw Kristian Doolittle. The 2017 class has Scout 100 prospects Trae Young and Brady Manek. And now here comes a blast from the past with Lazenby. 'That would be a great opportunity if it happens,' said Lazenby to Sooners Illustrated on Tuesday. 'Trae Young - I mean you don't have to say much about him. Kristian Doolittle is a big, strong attacker. And everything I've heard about Brady is he's a sharpshooter with size.' Lazenby is hoping to be another piece to that puzzle. He was around 200 pounds coming out of high school and believes adding the 15 pounds in the last two years is a huge reason why his recruitment took off here recently. Lazenby will be a junior for the upcoming season but does have a redshirt season available to him as well. The addition of Lazenby means OU has one open scholarship remaining if Kruger and company decide to pursue another junior college or graduate transfer at this stage. Courtesy of: scout.com
