The NCAA has announced that there will be no post-season tournaments in basketball in Division III this year, but the Roanoke College Maroons are hoping to have successful seasons as far as they can go. And, so far, things have been pretty good.
On Tuesday night both Maroon teams were scheduled to be in action. The men won at home against Randolph, 80-59, while the women had their game at Ferrum postponed.
With the victory the RC men improved to 5-1 on the season. The Maroons had a game at Virginia Wesleyan canceled on Saturday due to coronavirus pandemic protocols.
The RC men are back home tonight to take on Washington & Lee at 7 pm. Saturday’s scheduled game at Eastern Mennonite has also been canceled due to the pandemic.
The RC women are now 4-1. They crushed Virginia Wesleyan at Virginia Beach last Saturday, 92-30, jumping to an 11-0 lead and never looking back.
Kristina Harrell led the Maroons with 19 points and eight rebounds. Ayanna Scarborough had 18 points and seven boards, Renee Alquiza had 11 points and Whitney Hopson dished out six assists.
The women will host Washington & Lee at 7 pm Friday followed by a home game against Southern Virginia on Tuesday, February 16.
