McLennan Community College will honor its outgoing players on Sophomore Day when it hosts Weatherford in a pair of basketball games Saturday. The Highlassies’ tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m., with the men’s game to follow.
The Highlanders (22-4, 5-3 conference) have lost three of their last five, but have upcoming rematches against two of those teams. MCC will host Collin County next Wednesday and will travel to Hill for its regular-season finale on Feb. 28, with a chance to exact a measure of redemption.
In MCC’s previous game at Weatherford, the Highlanders rolled, 91-69.
The Highlassies (14-10, 7-3), meanwhile, fell to Weatherford, 82-69, in their previous meeting on Jan. 24. Since then, the women have gone 4-2 and are tied with Weatherford for second place in the conference standings.
