The Pirate men will play at Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington at 7 o'clock on Friday night. They will play the St. Louis Community College Archers in the #2 vs #3 semifinal, with the winner advancing to the Region 16 championship game on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, to play either Wentworth or Penn Valley (who play in a 5 o'clock semifinal on Friday).

The Lady Pirates, after earning the #1 seed for the Region 16 tournament at State Fair Community College in Sedalia, have the most advantageous road to a district title, but still must win two games in 24 hours to keep their season alive into the first week of March. On Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Lady Pirates will battle the Red Dragons of Wentworth Military Academy in the semifinal round. Wentworth won a first-round game with Penn Valley on Tuesday night in Lexington, 95-82.

If NCMC survives its third test of the season against Wentworth, the Region 16 championship game awaits, on Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Building (State Fair CC) in Sedalia. The Region 16 women's champion will host the Region 2 winner (likely North Arkansas) on Saturday, March 8th, with a trip to the national tournament in Overland Park, Kansas (Johnson County CC) on the line.
