Here’s the link to my story that ran in today’s Eagle on the KCAC title games – my focus was on the women’s game and Southwestern guard Brett Bates, the KCAC player of the year. The Jinx takes on Sterling at 6:10 tonight followed by the men’s title game, which is No. 5 McPherson against Saint Mary’s. They’re both being played at Hartman Arena.
And here’s Eagle columnist Bob Lutz’s take on the McPherson men’s team, which reached the NAIA Division II Elite Eight last season and are a legit national title contender this season. I’ve said this for a long time, but the KCAC needs to at least make it to a national title game (winning would be great) to be considered an elite conference at its level. For a Division I equivalent, think of the KCAC like a mid-low major.
I believe Taylor Eldridge is covering the games for us tonight.
