NMMC Eagles Host Fort Lewis This Sat
Espanola – This Saturday (11/5/16) at 5:00PM the Eagles will welcome to town the Skyhawks of Fort Lewis College! Fort Lewis College (FLC) is currently ranked #15 in the preseason NABC Division Basketball Poll, and #16 in the NCAA Division II Bulletin. Last season FLC finished with a 28-4 overall record, won the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, only to lose in the NCAA South Central Semifinals (second round of the NCAA DII National Tournament).
This will be a great test for Northern New Mexico College, as this is their first of two match-ups against FLC. This is also the first of eight NCAA games that NNMC will face this season.
Fort Lewis College also happens to be Head Coach Ryan Cordova’s alma mater. “Fort Lewis is a very good basketball team; they are extremely well coached, have a talented new recruiting class, and are returning their best player from last season in Blaylock. However, our guys are playing well, and are excited for this game. We know we are in for a battle come Saturday night, we’ll be ready. We really need our fans and community to come support us this Saturday; I would love to see our gym packed!”
Tip-off time is set for 5:00PM MST!
