Black and Gold open weekend on high note

ANDERSON, IND. – Manchester University put four players in double figures and scored 15 of the game's first 17 points in route to a 69-55 win over Kalamazoo College at O.C. Lewis Gymnasium Friday, Nov. 17.

Just as he did at Elmhurst College two nights before in the 2017-18 season opener, junior guard Adrian Johnson (Indianapolis, Ind.) stepped to the forefront with 14 points to go with four assists and two steals for Coach Gerad Good's squad. He had plenty of offensive help up and down the line-up, as senior guard Brody Kirby (Frankfort, Ind.) and senior forward Kenny Doss, Jr., (Chicago, Ill.) added 13 apiece with Doss, Jr., winding up just one board shy of a double-double. Junior guard Justin Lukens (Herrin, Ill.) got his first double-figure scoring effort in a Black and Gold uniform with 12 points.

Manchester University (1-1) steps foot on to its home Stan Weller Court honoring Coaches Hoffman and Wolfe Saturday, Nov. 18. They tip-off at 5:30 p.m. against the second of three successive Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association foes in Adrian College.
