MACC Wins Two on Saturday

The MACC basketball teams both extended their winning streaks in the final night of the Thanksgiving Classic. The Lady Hounds won their ninth straight to start the season with an 88-53 win over Arkansas State Mid-South, and the men held off Highland of Illinois 64-57 to win their eighth in a row.

For the women, T’Aaliyah Miner led all scorers with 21, and Aaliyah Smith added 18.

J.B. Connoley with the call on Information Radio KWIX and Coach Hana Haden’s squad wore out a team that only dressed nine and got into early foul trouble.

Moberly is 9-0, and plays at Jefferson Friday night. Mid-South falls to 7-2.

The men finished the first half on a 21-3 run to erase a seven-point early deficit.

Moberly stretched the lead to as many as 21 in the second half before the Cougars cut it to single digits late. Coach Pat Smith…
