(Park Hills) The Mineral Area College basketball teams swept State Fair for the second time this season. The Cardinal women won 85-54 to snap a three game skid and the 4th ranked men stayed perfect with a 93-48 win.
MAC went on top by 22 with six minutes left in the first half, 35-13 and it was showtime in “The Bob”…
It was more of the same in the second half as the Cardinals eventually built a 50 point lead. Every player available got into the game for MAC and every player scored. Manu Musemena scored 15 to lead the Cardinals. MAC shot 60% in the game. State Fair shot 27%.
Mineral Area College sophomore All American candidate Malevy Leons joined us on the postgame show. He says after going 30-2 and missing the national tournament last year, the Cardinals are focused on being even better this year…
The MAC remain undefeated at 13-0 and play again Friday afternoon against Illinois Prep. Our next MAC men’s broadcast will be on Monday at home against St. Louis Community College.
