The Pirates trailed by four points with three minutes to go, when Johnson County was hit with an intentional foul and technical foul on the same play. Jory Woodson hit all four free throws, and after a three-point shot by Tyrell Thirkield, NCMC claimed the lead. They would never give it back.

North Central, now 7-8 on the season, was paced by Xavier Newson with 23 points, with Thirkield adding 17 points, and Woodson 16. North Central will host the Missouri Valley JV on Friday night at 7 o'clock, looking to move back to the .500 mark. Johnson County, now 4-14 on the season, had 22 points each from Pat Jones and Preston Oakes.

The women's game was close for the first ten minutes, but the nationally-ranked squad from Johnson County overwhelmed the Lady Pirates late in the half, pushing the advantage to 20 points at the break, and over 30 points for most of the second half, with the Lady Cavaliers winning by a score of 80-46. North Central, in falling to 6-11 on the season, was led by Kayla Oetterer with 14 points and Brooke Parton with 13. Johnson County, now a perfect 18-0 on the campaign, was led by Sameia Kendall with 17 points, Taylor McDowell with 16, and Kelsey Barrett with 10. The Lady Pirates now prepare for a Region XVI home game on Tuesday night against Cottey College. The Lady Pirates are 1-0 in Region XVI play, after a victory earlier this month against Penn Valley.
