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.Â They commanded the post throughout the game, holding a 37-29 advantage in rebounds and collecting six blocks during the game.
â€śThey hurt us inside and outside,â€ť said Ancilla menâ€™s basketball coach Greg Neeley.Â â€śWe struggled to get key stops when we needed them.
â€śEvery time we got close, Kalamazoo Valley made a big play.Â We played well in short stretches, but for us to beat good teams away from home, we have to become more consistent.â€ť
The Chargers resume play on Jan. 19 when they host Grand Rapids Community College at the LifePlex in Plymouth.Â Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. EST.
