Ancilla closes season
The Ancilla men’s basketball team put up a strong defensive effort in Grand Rapids against Muskegon Community College in Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Western Conference play but still fell short 76-70.

Ancilla was playing with a short bench with just six players logging minutes, but the Chargers came out strong and kept the game close. Neither team led by more than eight points the entire night. Two Muskegon 3-point shots in the final three minutes turned out to be the difference. The Jayhawks pulled ahead with a 3-pointer after a time-out with just 1:20 left in the game.
For the game, Ancilla held Muskegon to just 7 of 36 from the 3-point line.
Marc Constable had his first career triple-double for Ancilla notching 11 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. Joby Renbarger added his fifth straight double-double with 25 points and 12 rebounds.
The loss to Muskegon has Ancilla finishing the season with 11 wins, a five-win improvement over last season.
