Thunder Open Conference Play This Weekend

Mens Team
Manhattan, Kan.

Manhattan Christian Thunder basketball squads closed out their non-conference season and are both gearing up to start conference play. The Midwest Christian College Conference will start this Friday, January 6 with a double header match up with Emmaus Bible College at the MCCC Classic held at Calvary University. 

The Lady Thunder had a tough non-conference schedule where they saw a handful of top NAIA teams. Having an 0-7 record heading into play this weekend doesn't reflect the true abilities this team equips. This season MCC has a strong inside game they are looking to focus on, but also a talented outside shooting to help balance it all out. With the tougher schedule, the ladies were able to progressively get better and kept a positive attitude. 

On the men's side, they are heading into this weekend with a 5-6 record. Navigating some injuries early on, also with a tough schedule, the Thunder are hoping to break a 4-game losing skid and get back on track. Returning 10 from last year and adding 5 new guys, MCC is continuing to come together, build and get better each day as a unit. 

Friday the ladies will start the morning off with a 10:00am tip time against Emmaus with the guys to follow at 12:00pm. They both will then turn around and play Faith Baptist Bible College on Saturday, January 5. Women will play at 2:00pm, men at 4:00pm. 

The first home game of 2023 will be Saturday, January 14 where MCC will take on Central Christian College of the Bible.
