The final regular season games for both the McCook Community College women’s and men’s basketball teams have been pushed back a day because of weekend weather and early week softball and baseball games have been wiped out.

The MCC men were to travel to Beatrice Monday but that has been moved to Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Both the women and men were to play Central Community College Tuesday but those games have been moved to Wednesday and the times were also changed as the women play at 5 p.m. and the men play at 7 p.m. (Central was to play in McCook Feb. 11 but those games were postponed because of the weather).

Both games on Wednesday could decide the Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference Championships.

While MCC’s weekend schedules were not affected by weather, this week’s changes are a result of Saturday’s postponement of the games between the Central Community College and Southeast Community College. Those teams will make up those games Monday.

The MCC women are 5-0 in conference, but Central Community College could gain a share of the conference title with a win in Columbus Monday and a win at McCook Wednesday. The Lady Indians beat Central 81-57 in Columbus on Nov. 20. The Lady Raiders are 9-13 on the year. With a win MCC would finish the regular season 20-10 and play a host a first round Region IX tournament game this weekend.

The MCC men were supposed to play at Southeast Community College (10-16 on the year) Monday but that game was moved to Tuesday at 6 p.m. so Southeast can travel to Columbus Monday to take on Central CC in a game that was postponed Saturday.

The men’s game Wednesday in the Peter and Dolores Graff Event’s Center will follow the women’s game which will start at 5 p.m. (30 minutes earlier than the original start time.).

The Indians beat the Southeast CC men at home 82-62 on Feb. 10 and beat Central CC at Columbus Nov. 20 by the score of 99-78.

MCC BASEBALL: Wednesday’s home opener for MCC baseball against Northeast have been cancelled.

MCC SOFTBALL: Tuesday’s softball game at Dodge City has been cancelled, with a make-up date yet to be determined. This weekend’s four-game series at La Junta, Colo. against Otero Junior College originally set for Saturday and Sunday have been moved up a day and will start Friday with a doubleheader starting at noon, MT and the Saturday doubleheader starting at 11 a.m. MT.

Also a makeup date for the Feb. 20 postponement against Colby Community College at home has been set for March 28, with games at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

With 2:06 to play redshirt freshman Avanthony Banks (Portageville, Mo.) hit a three-pointer to give MCC a 70-68 lead.

“AV had a monster night, took some great shots. He put in that big 3 pointer late and we never trailed,” Lenhart said.
