I’m live blogging from Hartman Arena in Park City for the KCAC men’s and women’s finals. Men’s championship starts at 6 and is between McPherson (19-12) and Sterling (20-10). Women’s final is at 8 between No. 13 Sterling (26-4) and No. 6 Kansas Wesleyan (30-2). Nice crowd for Mac for the men’s game, although several of the Warriors’ football players showed up dressed as … bananas. This should be fun.
Mac starting lineup: Aaron Frazier, Trent Severs, Samson Shivers, Jake Reinhardt, Jordan Crawford
Sterling starting lineup: Zach Goodrich, Trent Stutzman, Zach Poole, Cody Brazelton, Kenny McGrath
Okay I’ll give this to the Sterling football team … 50 dudes jumping up and down screaming I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN over and over again can be a little intimidating. I like it.
14:00, 1st half McPherson 9, Sterling 8 Goodrich and Shivers trade 3s on back-to-back possessions, both teams starting to warm up.
8:30, 1st half Sterling 18, McPherson 17 Basically, you get a bucket and it gives your team the lead. Three by Mac’s Chris Crawford answered with a three from Sterling’s Zach Poole, who is playing a heck of a game so far.
5:00, 1st half Sterling 22, McPherson 19 Little bit of a cold stretch for both teams.
