Road Win Over Southwestern CC

Road Win Over Southwestern CC

Pirates basketball outlasted a shorthanded Southwestern Community College squad Saturday to grab an 80-69 victory.  With the win, NCMC boasts an impressive 11-1 record with two games left to play before the holiday break.


Leading the scoring for the Pirates was freshman TJ Babikir.  He netted 23 points and pulled down 6 rebounds in the win.  Claiming a double-double was Quinan Rieves with 11 points and 11 rebounds.


The story of the game was Southwestern's lack of depth.  Only 6 players dressed due to suspensions and the Spartans finished the contest with only 3 players on the court.


Here are Coach Esry's postgame remarks about the game.




Next will be a road test Tuesday for the 14th ranked Pirates.  They travel to Kansas City to take on Johnson County Community College, currently ranked #1 in the latest NJCAA poll.
