Motlow In 1st Place

The Motlow Bucks (9-2, 7-0) stand alone at the top of the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) standings, the only team undefeated in conference play. Head coach Jerry Nichols knows there are still plenty of games to play, but he is happy with where his team is at the break.
“We played well in stretches this past weekend,” said Nichols. “We could have been better because we had slow starts in both games. We found a way to win though and right now we are where we need to be. We have a great chance to get to the national tournament for the first time in school history if we can keep playing well.”
Like all other junior and community college teams, the Bucks will now take their holiday break. Nichols expects his team to enjoy their break and the holidays, but he also expects them to return in January with their eyes on the prize, the NJCAA tournament.
