Game sponsored by Valentine Insurance Agency
Two unbeaten squads will take the floor this Saturday, November 11th as the Moberly Greyhound host Southeastern Community College from West Burlington, Iowa in one of the oldest rivalries in JUCO Basketball. Both teams are 4-0 in the early season. Game time is at 7:30 p.m. at the Fitzsimmons-John Arena. The Greyhounds are currently ranked #8 in the NJCAA pre-season rankings.
“Southeastern Iowa, under coach Lorenzo Watkins, has a very good, athletic team and this will be a great test and challenge for our squad,” said Coach Patrick Smith. “Their guards will be one of the better groups we play against and they have a very big, athletic front line. We must keep progressing, as we played hard against John Wood but made too many mistakes within our system. Fortunately we got a win and now it’s on to to the next game.”
The game will be sponsored by John Cochran and Valentine Insurance Agency.
“John Cochran and his family have meant so much to the college, and our basketball program over the years,” added Coach Smith. “As a player, coach and a booster, we really appreciate the many years of support. Coaching his son Brett was very special to me as part of the Greyhound legacy, same as having Will Rucker play for the Greyhounds after the great career of his grandfather Lawrence. We are very thankful to John for this sponsorship.”
