The Chadron State College basketball teams will wrap up their schedule on the road this weekend by playing at Colorado Christian on Friday night and Colorado Mines, both in the Denver metroplex.
After that, the Eagles’ final five games will be at home, including a visit by Regis on Tuesday, Feb. 6.
The Eagles hosted Christian and Mines to open their RMAC schedules in early December. Mines won both games with the Orediggers women winning 77-71 and the men 83-71. CSC bested both Christian Cougars quintets by scores of 80-69 in the women’s game and 83-59 in men’s tilt.
The Christian women are now 6-14 overall and 4-11 in the RMAC. The men are 3-16 and 2-12.
The Colorado Mines women are 13-7 for the season and 10-4 in the league. The Mines men won their first 10 games, but are 5-5 since then. They are 9-5 in the conference.
Tuesday night’s game will be the first this season between the Eagles and Regis. The Lady Rangers are 11-9 overall and 10-5 in the RMAC. The Regis men are 15-5 and 9-5 and feature four players who are averaging between 13 and 15 points.
The CSC women won Saturday night at New Mexico Highlands and are now 4-17 overall and 2-13 in the RMAC. The men came close in Las Vegas, falling by just 69-67 and are 3-17 and 1-14. Both teams hope February, like Valentine’s Day, brings them some sweet victories.
