Winter break is over and the Thunderduck basketball season is in full swing.

The Richland women’s basketball team is playing their third season since beginning in 2015. A club team under the guidance of Drew Jackson, they’ve assembled a good crop of players. Unfortunately the lady T-Ducks have had challenges this year, starting with losses in the first two games against Colin County and Weatherford. They hope to bounce back in the next game against Mountain View.

The men’s conference team started the year with a big win, beating Concordia University JV 109-73. They couldn’t keep the momentum going in their next game though, loosing 74-86 to Weatherford. It was a close game, but ultimately the visitors prevailed. This was the second meeting between the teams this season. Weatherford also won the first game 101-92.
