Pilots Flight Report: Men’s and Women’s Hoops
Both Pilots basketball teams find themselves facing familiar foes in round one of the NIAC championships. Coming off of split decisions this past weekend against the Rebels, the men’s team will look to bounce back with a redemptive win while the women look to remain undefeated against Red River this season. The women faced the Rebels in the MCAC semi-final where they were able to hold rank by a score of 61-53. The men played hard in their championship final match with the Rebels but fell 76-68.

Women’s Game
GAME: #2 Providence Pilots vs #7 Red River
DATE: Feb. 15-17
LOCATION: Sisseton, SD

FROM THE COACH:
“It’s hard to get over a loss, but there is no time to live in the past. My team has been working hard this week to focus on what’s in front rather then behind. We know the Rebels are hoping to steal our seeding on Friday, but we will come back prepared and stronger then we were last weekend. All we want is another matchup with the CMU Blazers. We know to make that happen, we must play our best basketball and get through two tough rounds.” (Joel Coursey)

PLAYER’S VIEW:
“Coming into this weekend as the number two seed we are dialled in and ready to battle. After a tough loss this past weekend, we are motivated more then ever and hungry to bring home some hardware! We know that our road to the finals won’t be easy as we meet Red River in our first game. I’m excited to face some tough competition this weekend and play the game I love.” (Joanne Schwarz, 4th year guard)

Our tournament kicks off on Friday with a matchup against the Red River Rebels. After losing to the Rebels in the MCAC final last weekend, we are looking forward to our chance at redemption. We know it will to be a tough game, but we are ready for the challenge and hungry for more. Hungry for a championship.” (Pierre Dubreuil)
