Eagles win 21st game

The Golden Eagles won lucky No. 21.

The Laramie County Community College basketball team won its final home game of the regular season against McCook Community College 87—76 Saturday, Feb. 21, securing the first 21-win season since collegiate basketball returned to the college in 2002.

The Golden Eagles (21-9; 11-5 Region IX South) outscored the Indians 50—39 in the second half, after playing a tight 37—37 first half.

Sophomore night was highlighted by the performance of sophomore guard Spencer Svejcar, who scored 25 points, hitting five of eight shots from beyond the three-point line. Fellow sophomores Kamari Robinson and Darien Fernandez added 16 points and 12 points respectively.

Seeding for the tournament has not yet been set. The Golden Eagles would currently be the third seed. The team will most likely play the sixth seed at home for the first round of the Region IX tournament on Feb. 28. Having a home game to start the tournament is a big boon for the Golden Eagles, who have won 14 of 16 games the team has played in Cheyenne. The time of the game has not yet been announced.

Two games have yet to be played, including seventh-place McCook Community College (6-9 Region IX South) traveling play to second-place North Platte (12-5 Region IX South) Feb. 24, and fifth-place Lamar Community College (7-7 Region IX South) and sixth-place Trinidad State Junior College (6-9 Region IX South) will play Feb. 25. The two most likely opponents for the Eagles in the first round are TSJC and MCC, with an outside chance of a matchup against Otero Junior College (6-10).
