Key NJCAA Region 16 match-up
The MACC Greyhound Men’s Basketball Team will be hosting the Missouri State-West Plains Grizzlies in an NJCAA Region16 matchup. Moberly is currently 23-3 on the season and ranked #14 in the NJCAA National Rankings. They have won 4 of their last five with impressive wins over Three Rivers, Mineral Area and an 85-77 win over Southeastern Iowa this past Monday. MACC is 4-1 in Region 16 and currently stand 5-1 in the MCCAC Conference with Mineral Area being 5-1 in both regional and conference standings. Missouri State West Plains currently are 2-4 in regional competition with the Hounds and Grizzlies meeting twice in the last two weeks of the regular season.
“Games at the end of the season are just magnified in their importance, obviously especially region games,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “Like we told our players Sunday, this is the most important week of the season for us and we currently have one down and two to go. We are playing for the end of a tremendous regular season, national ranking, seeding for the regional tournament and getting ready for the regional tournament. West Plains coaching staff has done an excellent job this season, they really run their offense extremely well and they are simply the most skilled team we’ve seen all season. It's going to be a great challenge and we look forward to it.
Game time is 7:00 pm preceded by the Lady Greyhounds playing Marshalltown College.
