Danyel Bibbs’ double-double helped keep the Grand Rapids Community College men’s basketball team stay perfect on the year, improving to 8-0 after a dominating 21-point victory over Glen Oaks Community College on Saturday.

Bibbs, a two-time Northern Conference player of the week, led both schools with a 25-point, 10-assist performance to lead the team to a 94-73 win.

“Glen Oaks is a tough team,” coach Joe Fox said. “I thought we did a nice job pushing the pace today and keeping pressure on defensively. Myron Brewer and Rico Wade hit some very timely shots. Really pleased with how our sophomores resonded.”

Glen Oaks kept the game close in the first half, leading at the 10-minute mark, but the Raiders closed the half on a 22-9 run and never looked back.

GRCC shot 51 percent from the field in the second half including 8-of-17 from behind the arc while holding the Vikings to just 39 percent overall and 23 percent from behind the arc.

Eleven players scored in all for the Raiders, including 14 points from Myron Brewer and 10 from Jordan Houser, while every player had at least one rebound, including Herman Brown who led the team with six.

The team returns to the Gerald R. Ford Fieldhouse for its next game vs. the junior varsity of Hope College on Dec. 8. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
