Jackson, Michigan– Jackson College’s Men’s Basketball Team is set to begin their season today against Schoolcraft College. The contest will begin at 7pm and will be played on the campus of Jackson College.
Last season the Jets were the best they have been in quite some clip. The Jets went 19-11 on the year, a 63% win percentage under first year Head Coach Marshawn Norris.
Norris is now entering his second season as the Head Coach at Jackson, and will be looking to improve the program even further. He expanded his thoughts on last year and more in the November 7th edition of Inside the Locker Room.
They ended last season on a loss, and will look to open up a new winning streak tonight at home. The Jets were 12-2 when at home last season.
Norris discussed the importance of his returners (Osebor, Pierce and Sietsema). All three were Freshman last season. Osebor was the most efficient of the bunch, pitching in four points per game and shooting 58% from the floor.
The Jets will also benefit from transfer Connor Pelham. Pelham played at Michigan Center, before beginning his collegiate career at Spring Arbor University. The 6’3” Guard only received 40 minutes during his Freshman year. He made the move to Jackson College and will likely be a big piece of the team.
Admission to Jackson College’s Men’s Basketball is free. You can see them play at home against Schoolcraft College today. The contest will begin at 7pm. The image used in this article is courtesy of Jackson College athletics.
