Carroll Men and Women Preparing for Last Week of Conference Play

Posted: Updated:

There are two games left in Frontier Conference play for the Carroll men's and women's basketball team. While the men are trying to build momentum for next season, the women are trying to hold on to a spot in the postseason.

The Saints will host the University of Great Falls on Thursday. The men play at 7:30, while the women play at 5:30. Rachelle Sayers team is 6-8, and tied for fifth place in the conference with Montana Tech. The Argos are a game back of the Saints at 5-9. Carroll won the first meeting between the teams back in January, and with a win on Thursday, will eliminate any kind of tie-break scenario with UGF.

"As long as we beat UGF then we own the tie breaker. Cause we beat them there, that means that we've won here and we would have swept them. So even if we end up in a tie. That's why Thursday's game is so critical, because we don't want to be in a tie breaker scenario with UGF because they would own it with their win against LC. So the Thursday night game is huge for us," Saints head coach Rachelle Sayers says.

With a win, Carroll will guarantee itself a playoff berth. However, a loss to UGF means the Saints need to beat Dickinson State at home on Saturday, then hope the Argos lose to winless Rocky in Great Falls on Saturday, or beat Dickinson and hope Montana Tech falters down the stretch.

On the men's side, the Carroll men are 3-11 in league play and have no hope to make the playoffs. However, they could make UGF's bid for a home playoff game all but disappear with a win on Thursday, and build some momentum heading into the offseason. And that's all Saints head coach Carson Cunningham really cares about.

"We just got to worry about winning games," Cunningham says. "And we want to make sure that every guy, every coach does everything they can for these seniors to go out with two wins at home, and it'll start with Great Falls. So as far as what that means for other teams in the standings we can't worry about. We want to get to ten wins, I think that'd be great. So we're going to battle to give it a go."
