It’s the second of two Wednesday night specials for the McPherson College basketball teams when they host Bethel at the Sport Center.

The women tip off at 6 p.m., with the men to follow. Matt Cole will be on the play-by-play call for both games, with pre-game starting at 5:55.

The games are being played on Wednesday due to it being high school tournament week for the girls.

The Mac women can’t afford to look past Bethel. The Bulldogs have dropped to 6-8 in the KCAC and 11-11 overall. Bethel, however, is 0-14 in the KCAC and 1-17 overall.

In the first meeting, though, the Bulldogs needed overtime to pull out the victory.

The Mac men will be trying to salvage a season split with the Threshers. Mac is 3-11 in the KCAC and a win would tie it in the standings with the Threshers, who are 4-10. Bethel was 6-0 overall to start the season, but things got rough once conference play started.

Mac is 9-13 overall.

The Bulldog cagers are back on the road Saturday at Sterling. There will be no broadcast  due to coverage of the Mid America Classic.
