CLINTON — The Clinton Community College men’s basketball team led by just two at halftime but used the fast break to build a cushion in the second half for an 82-63 victory over Fulton-Montgomery Saturday.
“We just started making shots finally and did a really good job on the defensive glass and got the fast break going,” Cougars coach Kevin Daugherty said. “When we’re able to rebound and make some shots and run, we’re a very fun team to watch.”
Chris Miller paced the Cougars with 18 points, and Kyree Hull and Matt Spencer both scored 15. Mykell Crecko finished just shy of a triple-double with nine points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists. He also had eight blocks.
“Mykell Crecko had a couple dunks in traffic and some real pretty no-look passes. He had a very good day for us,” Daugherty said. “And Spencer played very well.”
Jamie Davison added seven points and five assists for Clinton (11-9, 8-8).
Bryant Jack scored 16 for Fulton-Montgomery.
