Cards Featured on NWAC Game of the Week
The Cardinals men and women's basketball doubleheader, on Saturday, January 21, against the Community Colleges of Spokane, has been selected as the NWAC Games of the Week. The games can be viewed live on local cable on the SWX channel beginning with the ladies contest at 2:00PM, immediately followed by the men's game at approximately 4:00PM. The games will be played at the Spokane Falls Community College campus near the Spokane airport. All Cardinal games can also be viewed on the Cardinals webcast at www.nic.edu/athletics with the voice of the Cardinals, Dick Haugen.
The top ranked Cardinal men (3-1 NWAC, 15-2 overall) can regain a share of 1st place in the NWAC East region with a victory over the #3 Sasquatch (2-2 NWAC, 12-4). Both teams are chasing Walla Walla CC (4-1, 13-4 overall) in the standings, with Big Bend CC only a game behind.
The Lady Cardinals (1-3 NWAC, 8-7 overall) square off against the #4 ranked Sasquatch (4-0 NWAC, 13-2 overall) in the opener. The Lady Cards have gotten off to a slow start with a young lineup and face a tough road to get back in NWAC playoff contention in the strong East Region. Yakima Valley and Columbia Basin join Spokane in the NWAC rankings, with Walla Walla also receiving votes.
