(Neb.)- Eagles Begin Season-Ending Homestand This Weekend
CHADRON, Neb. -- The Chadron State College basketball teams will host Metropolitan State University of Denver and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs this weekend as they begin a five-game homestand to wrap up the season.
The Metro Roadrunners will visit Friday night. Both teams are 12-5 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The women are 16-7 overall and are tied for second in the conference standings. The men, who lost their first five non-conference games, are 13-10 for the season and are third in the RMAC, but No. 2 Westminster, 14-3 in league play, cannot advance to the conference shootout because the Griffins are still transitioning into the NCAA.
Both Colorado Springs teams are 8-9 in the conference and are battling to finish in the top eight among the 14 playoff-eligible teams.
The Colorado Springs women are 8-14 for the season and the men are 11-12.
This weekend's guests swept the Eagles on their home courts in December, but CSC was competitive. The Metro women won 56-45 and the men prevailed 79-67, even though the Eagles shot 51 percent from the field. The Colorado Springs women won over CSC 71-58 and the men used a 22-8 advantage from the free throw line to help take a 69-63 decision.
The Eagles also will be at home on Tuesday, Feb. 13, to play the Regis Rangers in a double-header. That evening's entertainment will feature CSC coaches Riann Mullis and Kaley Scearcy as they square off on the basketball court, while coaches Jay Long and Brett Hunter do the same.
