  • Scots Drop Second In A Row
    January 28, 2011
    Playing less than 24 hours after a trip to Montgomery, Alabama and a loss is no easy task, but that was what the Covenant Scots were faced with Thursday night.

Yet even so, the basketball teams have continued to work hard at improving upon their season records. Heading into the past two weeks, the teams had combined for just two wins (both by the men), but were hoping to change that as the second half of the season got underway.
