St. Louis, MO – Both basketball teams traveled to Missouri Baptist University (MBU) on Saturday for American Midwest Conference action.
In the women's game, CBC never led but kept it close into the fourth quarter as MBU won 74-53. Denesha Dillard (12 pts) and Morgan Fimpel (10 pts) led the Lady Mustangs in scoring. MBU's defense held CBC to 27% shooting from the field.
In the nightcap, the Mustangs led by 14 points (52-38) at the half but Missouri Baptist came storming back with four minutes left in the contest on a 2-pt basket by John Caraballo. MBU never trailed again and hit their free throws down the stretch to preserve the win, 86-74.
