The Motlow Bucks remained undefeated in TCCAA play and moved two steps closer to a berth in the NJCAA tournament with wins over Southwest Tennessee and Dyersburg State last weekend. The Lady Bucks came up short in both of their games.
Friday night the Bucks (13-2, 9-0) beat the league’s second place team Southwest 72-59 in Memphis. On Saturday the Bucks traveled to Dyersburg and won 83-72. The Bucks now lead the conference by three games at the halfway point, and the regular season champ earns an automatic bid to the national event.
Both Motlow teams step outside the conference this week with a trip to Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, KY Wednesday night. Motlow will be back in TCCAA action on Saturday in Gallatin against Vol St.
Motlow College officials are inviting area citizens and Motlow faculty, staff, students and alumni to Homecoming 2013 on the Moore County campus, said Sheri Mason, assistant director of student services and Student Government Association (SGA) sponsor.
The event, hosted by the SGA, will begin at 1 p.m. on Feb. 2 and will feature basketball games, the crowning of Homecoming queen and king, a photo booth, free t-shirts and pom-poms as long as supplies last, and entertainment by the Little Dribblers of Franklin County. All events are free.
On the basketball court in Copperweld Arena, the Bucks and Lady Bucks will face teams from Cleveland State. The Lady Bucks game will begin at 2 p.m., followed by the Bucks game at 4 p.m. The Homecoming court will be presented and a queen and king crowned during halftime of the men’s game. Motlow students on the Moore County campus and at the Fayetteville, McMinnville and Smyrna centers choose the candidates to represent each site and vote on the male and female to be named queen and king.
The Little Dribblers will perform during halftime of the women’s game.
