On Saturday, Feb. 4, the St.Clair County Community College men’s basketball came up with the win over Kirtland Community College 70 – 56. Breaking the Skippers losing streak of six games in row.

Throughout the whole game, the Skippers seemed to be determined on breaking their losing woes.

SC4’s men’s basketball team had a comfortable lead at halftime with a score of 36 – 27 and kept their composure to pick up the win and never lose the lead.

Johnnie Mills had himself a ball game by leading in scoring with 24 points.

Others on the Skippers that scored were: Josh Craig with 10 points. Melvin Green III and Dennis Hogan contributed 8 points apiece. Also scoring was: Latwann Wesley, Deion Stegall, Jesse Schienke, Brendalle Smith and Lionel Hicks. Showing that the Skippers were moving the ball around really well.
