“It’s very exciting to have another basketball season upon us,” said Coach Pat Smith, “Our players have been working very hard to prepare for the opening games and they are here. We must continue our progress from October onto the heavy November slate of games we have and play them one at a time. We’re a work in progress but like what we can be. Hopefully we can get there sooner than later, excited for our players and fans to get this season started. WE are very appreciative of Orscheln’s for the sponsorship of the classic and their investment in our program as they are just outstanding boosters who tremendously contribute to our success.”
Moberly finished 28-7 last season with the Region 16 Tournament Championship, District IV Champions, NJCAA Tournament Sweet 16, MCCAC Champions, Region 16 undefeated Title and the Highland Christmas Classic Title for the fourth straight season.
