Hornback, a freshman guard, added five assists and three steals in 36 minutes of work for Ancilla (2-9, 1-2 MCCAA Western).
Antonio Cannon added 12 points and seven assists while Ellis Cole chipped in with 11 points for the Chargers.
Kalamazoo Valley (13-4, 5-0 MCCAA Western) put on an offensive clinic, connecting on over 57 percent of their shots on the night on 32-of-56 shooting. They commanded the post throughout the game, holding a 37-29 advantage in rebounds and collecting six blocks during the game.
“They hurt us inside and outside,” said Ancilla men’s basketball coach Greg Neeley. “We struggled to get key stops when we needed them.
“Every time we got close, Kalamazoo Valley made a big play. We played well in short stretches, but for us to beat good teams away from home, we have to become more consistent.”
The Chargers resume play on Jan. 19 when they host Grand Rapids Community College at the LifePlex in Plymouth. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. EST.
