The Chadron State College basketball teams will host Metro State and 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 RMAC competition. The women are 16-7 overall and are tied for second in the conference. The men, who lost their first five non-conference games, are 13-10 for the season and third in the RMAC standings, 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 league play and 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.
