THE NEXT MATCH
Prince George's concludes the 2018 portion of its schedule in Western Pennsylvania on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Owls will play CCAC Boyce in an NJCAA Region XX Division III tilt on Tuesday in Monroeville and then will face CCAC Allegheny in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
The Largo team is currently tied with Anne Arundel Community College in the region standings with a 4-0 mark. A win against CCAC Boyce will give the Owls a 5-0 mark in the region with a date with the Riverhawks on Jan. 18 at Novak Field House mostly likely deciding the No. 1 seed for the NJCAA Region XX Division III Tournament hosted by Prince George's in February.
Prince George's defeated CCAC Alleghany 85-68 at the McDonald's Basketball Tipoff Tournament on Nov. 10 so the game on Wednesday does not count toward region standings since region rules stipulate that only the first incounter counts for seeding purposes. Sophomore Alex Morales paced the Owls with 29 points, 17 rebounds, eight assists and seven steals in the Nov. 10 contest against CCAC Allegheny.
The last time the Largo program played CCAC Boyce was in the 2015 NJCAA Region XX Division III Championship Game. The Owls won that title for its sixth region crown and the second of three-straight titles for the team.
CCAC Boyce will be playing its first region tilt of the season and comes into the game 2-7 overall while CCAC Allegheny comes into the meeting 0-8 on the year.
