North Central will open play on Tuesday night, November 4th, traveling to Overland Park, Kansas to take on the Johnson County CC Cavaliers at 7:30. The home opener is the following night, with the Graceland JV visiting the Ketcham Community Center at 7:30. The Pirates will travel to Ottumwa, Iowa the first weekend of the season, to play in the Indian Hills Classic. North Central takes on Shawnee CC on November 7th and Lee Community College on November 8th. A trip to Creston, Iowa for a meeting with the Southwestern Spartans will be Monday, November 10th (7:30 PM).

A two-game homestand awaits the Pirates in the middle of the month, with the Missouri Valley JV coming to Trenton on November 13th (7:30 PM), and Lincoln Land Community College on November 15th (4:00 PM). A quick trip to Lamoni, Iowa to play the Graceland JV will happen on November 17th, followed by two more games at the Ketcham Community Center, with the Ellsworth Panthers arriving on November 19th (7:30 PM), and Johnson County, Kansas for the return trip in the home-and-home series on November 22nd (4:00 PM).

NCMC travels to Quincy, Illinois for a matchup with the John Wood Trail Blazers on November 26th (5:00 PM) to finish up the month. December will have three games for a Pirate team looking to stay sharp heading into Christmas Break, as North Central hosts Southwestern Iowa on December 3rd (7:30 PM), Moberly on December 6th (4:00 PM), and the Culver-Stockton JV on December 10th (7:30 PM).

The 2015 portion of the schedule features three games before Region 16 play begins, with Coach Richman's team heading to Springfield, Illinois to play Lincoln Land on January 7th (7:30 PM), and Harrison, Arkansas for a meeting with North Arkansas CC on January 10th (4:00 PM). A quick swing to Marshall to play the Missouri Valley JV Vikings is on January 11th, at 3 o'clock.

A ten-day stretch without games should give the Pirates rest before a showdown with Wentworth Military Academy, in Trenton, at 7:30 on January 21st. Region play continues on January 24th, with the St. Louis Archers in town (4:00 PM). The month is completed with a game at Penn Valley CC in Kansas City the afternoon of January 31st at 4 o'clock.

In February, the NCMC men will have eight games, bringing with a challenging game at Indian Hills CC in Ottumwa, Iowa, on February 4th at 7:00 PM. The Pirates head for St. Louis, and a meeting with STLCC on February 7th (3:00 PM), then have a home date with the William Penn (Iowa) JV on February 9th (7:30 at KCC). The Pirates regular season road finale will be at Wentworth Military Academy, February 11th at 7:30 PM.

Four straight home games will finish the regular season, with hopes of preparing North Central for an always tough four-team Region 16 tournament. The Pirates host Penn Valley on February 14th (7:30 PM), the Culver-Stockton JV on February 16th (7:30 PM), State Fair CC of Sedalia on February 18th (7:30 PM), and North Arkansas CC on February 21st at 4:00 PM.

Hopes are high for success at North Central Missouri College this season, with an established and talented sophomore class boosted by a freshman group that, on paper, has the potential to fill holes in the roster left by defections and graduation losses from last spring.

Returning sophomores include forward Avion Ashford of St. Louis, Andrew Berry of Columbia, Jamin Brandt of Nevada (MO), Blake Johnson and Xavier Newson from Peoria, Illinois; Justin Seamon of Columbia, Tyrell Thirkield of Higginsville, Jory Woodson of St. Louis, and Austin Taul from Trenton.

The freshman class is made up of 6'7" forward David Barton of Knob Noster; 6'2" guard Caleb Berry from Lee's Summit; 6'2" guard Terrance Bush Jr. from Des Moines, Iowa; and 6'5" forward Reid Summers of Richmond, who scored over 2,000 points in his high school career with the Spartans.
