The Chadron State College women’s basketball teams will wrap up the 2020 portion of their schedule on Friday night by playing at Colorado-Colorado Springs in a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference clash.

CSC men’s basketball has postponed its matchup against the Mountain Lions due to COVID-19 testing and protocols.

The Lady Lions have had their previous contests postponed or canceled and will be opening their schedule against the Eagles.

The Eagles opened their seasons last weekend. The women played just one game and were defeated by Colorado Mesa.

The UCCS women were 11-17 overall and 10-12 in the RMAC last season. They were picked to finish 12th this year in the conference’s preseason poll. The Eagles exploded for 29 points in the fourth quarter and shaded UCCS 78-74 a year ago in Colorado Springs. Taryn Foxen poured in 33 points for CSC and Jori Peters sank all four of her free throws in the final 15 seconds to win the game.

Abby Feickert, now a senior guard, scored 21 points to lead the Lions.

The Eagles are slated to return to action following the holidays by hosting Colorado Mines and Regis on January 3 and 4.
