The Mineral Area College men’s basketball team improved to 7-0 over the weekend and has also received a #15 ranking in the national poll. The Cardinals used a 31-3 run on Saturday to defeat Highland. The Cardinals offense is being fueled by a defense that is turning over the opposition and feeding the fast break. Kevin Legardy is the latest example of that. The sophomore from Las Vegas used eight steals to help him score 23 points in the last game. He also made steals on four straight defensive possessions. MAC assistant coach Tim Walsh is happy to have some well rounded players..
