Game time at 7:00 pm
The Moberly Area Community College Greyhound Men’s Basketball Team will host St. Louis Prep on Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm at the Fitzsimmons-John Arena. St. Louis Prep replaces Link Year Prep on the schedule as they had to cancel. The Greyhounds last played Saturday night on the road as they defeated Three Rivers 103-74 and will resume Region 16 competition Saturday, Feb. 3 as they travel to Park Hills, Mo. to play Mineral Area College at 7 pm.
‘I’m very pleased with the progress this team has made but not satisfied if that makes any sense,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “We have certainly improved in all areas even with player personnel changes and adjustments. Now the next step is how close to a 40 minute team we can become in term of the two “E’s” we talk about, effort and execution. We have to eliminate the 6-8 bad possessions defensively we have each half; fully realize good teams are still going to score some but let’s not make it from our defensive mistakes. Offensively must keep playing with what we call pace, up tempo and moving the ball.”
Moberly is currently 20-3 on the season, 4-0 in Region 16 play, ranked 16th in the NJCAA poll and on a five game winning streak.
