Cougars host Jamestown tonight
Before everyone hits the road for a football, family and fowl filled weekend, the Cougar men's and women's basketball teams host Jamestown tonight (Nov. 22) on Jim Gremmels Court.
The women tip off the night first at 5:30 p.m., with the men set to follow right after at 7:30. The Cougar women enter the night 2-1 after the first week of play, while the men went 1-1 in last week's action. For the Jimmies, the women enter at 7-1 on the season, with the men at 4-3.
Jamestown comes to Morris out of the NAIA, with each team among the best in the country in their respective rankings. The Jimmie men ranked No. 22 in the NAIA Division II preseason polls, while the women received votes in the preseason, but fell just outside the top-25.
Last season the teams met twice each, one time on each home floor. The women fell 75-69 at home and 80-46 on the road, with the men dropping a 74-51 decision at home and a 71-52 contest on the road.
Following tonight's game, the Cougars will take the weekend off before returning to action on the road next week at Mayville State, tipping off at 5:30 and 7:30 on Nov. 29.
