Lakers basketball begins tournament play

Both the men and women Lakers basketball teams have moved on to the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 4 tournament after winning Friday, Feb. 20.

The MMCC men’s team beat Lorain County Community College in Ohio with a score of 92-81.  The women won 92-34. With those victories, the Lakers are now the NJCAA Region 12 Champions, making them eligible for the Region 4 tournament. The men play tonight (Feb. 24) against No. 6 seed in Region 4, Harper College in Illinois.

As long as the teams keep winning, they move on in the tournament. One loss eliminates them from competition.

The tournament schedule follows:

Women’s Team

Thursday, Feb. 26  – Play No. 3 seed in Region 4 (Madison College in WI)

Saturday, Feb. 28 – Semifinals at Joliet Junior College (southwest of Chicago)
