The third ranked Mineral Area College men lost their first game of the season, 85-74 on the road at Moberly. The Cardinals led early 19-12, before Moberly took an eight point lead with a 29-14 push. Kevin Legardy gave MAC some momentum heading into the locker room…..
The Greyhounds surged back to start the second half, outscoring MAC 22-7 over the first eight and a half minutes. That run put Moberly up 19 and ended the threat for a MAC comeback. The Cardinals did close to within nine and had a three pointer rattle out that would’ve made it six. Malevy Leons led the Cardinals with 18 points and Legardy scored 16. Moberly’s Eddie Creal led all scorers with 21.
