Women’s Basketball: Streak continues with clean sweep

Entering the week with the opportunity to get over the .500 record mark for the first time since December, many things were at stake for the women’s basketball team with tough conference games on the docket.

Pouncing on the chance to get hot at the right time, the Cyclones took all three games on the schedule this week with convincing wins.

Starting Tuesday against Elgin Community College, the Cyclones were able to pull a blowout win, 71-42.

Leading the charge was Reagan Cameron with 18 points and Katchie Savic filling up the stat sheet with 14 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 steals in the victory.

On sophomore recognition night Thursday, MV made a true statement, winning by an extreme 40 points, 86-46 against McHenry County College.

Capping off the week with a 66-48 win against rival South Suburban College, the Cyclones closed the week with an outrageous 87 point differential in just three games.

Sophomore Kelsey Kelley summed up the small difference has been in the team’s quick turnaround: “Playing together.”

The Cyclones hope to keep up the same team effort this week, which is also filled with challenges in a large slate of four games in preparation for playoffs next week.

Men’s Basketball: Sweeping the week nothing new

Kicking off the week with some confidence coming off of a win against Waubonsee Community College, the men had some pep in their step taking home a stern 86-69 victory against Elgin Community College.

The win was led by a scoring outburst by sophomore Kobe Adams and a triple-double by freshman Anthony Taylor.

Playing with even more confidence than ever before, the team was able to take down a tough McHenry County College roster to sweep the games for the week.

Adams and Taylor again led the charge for the Cyclones with 25 and 22 points respectively.

When Adams was asked about the performance, his response was clear on the team’s mindset: “We handled business.”

Looking forward, Coach Aaron Green said the rest of the season is about improvement and trying to strengthen the team’s odds going into postseason play.

He said the hope is to “finish off the rest of the season nice and try to get a good seed going into the playoffs.”

The Cyclones will finish out the regular season with games against Oakton Community College and Prairie State College.
