The 16th-ranked McLennan men’s basketball squad will get one last test before the start of conference play, as the Highlanders welcome in Concordia University’s JV team to The Highlands on Tuesday.

MCC (16-1) has ripped off 11 straight wins since its lone defeat of the year on Nov. 10. That streak includes a 107-70 victory at Concordia University’s JV on Nov. 26.

Xavier Armstead, a 6-5 freshman guard from Midway, continues to play well for MCC, as he averages a team-best 14.8 points on 51.2 percent shooting from the floor and 48.2 shooting from beyond the 3-point arc. But three other Highlanders also average double figures – Jashawn Talton (13.0), Javen Hedgeman (12.6) and Antoine Banks (11.6).

Game time on Tuesday is 6 p.m.
