The Moberly Area Comm. Basketball squads will open up MCCAC Conference Play on Tuesday evening at they will host St. Louis CC in a doubleheader at Fitzsimmons-John Arena. The women’s contest will begin at 5:00 pm followed by the Men’s game starting approximately at 7:00 pm. The Greyhounds will enter the game with a 13-5 record and a six game winning streak after defeating #24 ranked Southeastern Iowa CC 90-71 this past Saturday evening.
“St. Louis CC is an extremely hard playing and well coached team,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “In fact, they gave us our only conference and regional regular season loss last season. I feel like our team has really progressed, especially in the areas of offensive execution and getting stops defensively. With that said, still a long way to go and the biggest thing we have to do right now is to eliminate the bad possessions that leads to inconsistency. This is the time of year you need to kick in and be playing very good basketball heading into conference and regional competition.”
