WYE MILLS, Md. — The Hagerstown Community College Men's basketball team lost to Chesapeake College at a conference away game on Jan. 24 by a score of 55-70.
Men's basketball assistant coach Ben Schlotter expressed some tough love after the loss.
"The guys played hard but, not as a team," said Schlotter. "We struggled offensively the whole game and during the second half, our defense began to struggle too."
As a result, the team currently stands 2-6 in the Maryland JUCO conference and 7-12 overall.
"This team had a lot of talent," said Schlotter. "When we play as a team, it showcases our talent."
Looking ahead, Schlotter outlined his thoughts to winning the upcoming game home against Central Penn College.
Schlotter said, "If we can play as a team and stay together for the full 40 minutes, we will not only beat Central Penn, but will still have a very successful season ending with at least a region title."
The men's team will play at home on Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. against Central Penn College.
