“This time of year is exciting for college basketball, both as participants and as fans,” said MACC Coach Pat Smith, “While March Madness is not quite here yet , every game is important and it’s the time of season you want to be playing your best basketball. We call it the “pursuit of championships” and that’s what Greyhound Basketball is all about. We’ve been working all year to get to this point and so excited about the challenges that lie ahead starting tomorrow night. Very appreciative of the two businesses which will be sponsoring the games on Saturday and to all the tremendous support our program receives from our community.”
The games against State Fair will be sponsored by Regional Missouri Bank and Leaf.
