AC News Service

Angelina College's basketball teams will close out the regular season Saturday at Shands Gymnasium, with the men's team facing at least one more game at home before conference play begins next week in Tyler.

Regardless of the outcome of Saturday's game with Lon Morris, the Roadrunners will need to win Monday night's "play-in" game against Coastal Bend if they want to extend their season. AC (12-17, 3-15) is coming off an overtime loss to Lee College on Wednesday and will face a Bearcat team that lost 68-60 to Jacksonville the same night to fall to 14-14, 7-10 on the season.

Game time for the men is 6 p.m.

The Lady Roadrunners, on the other hand, will enter the tournament as either the sixth or seventh seed, depending on today's outcome. AC (12-16, 8-10) squares off against Lon Morris' Lady Bearcats (16-12, 8-8) in a rematch of a Jan. 18th game won by the Lady 'Cats 72-59.

The Lady Roadrunners tip off at 4 p.m.
