The Providence Pilots men’s basketball team fell at the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference Final Four stage, losing 88-70 to the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers on Saturday.
 
Despite the defeat four Pilots kept Providence in the game. MCAC MVP Romeo KC scored 16 points and added 7 assists; All Conference team member Richard Rodgers contributed 15 points and 8 rebounds; Harold Memita put up 16 points, and Chris Dick chipped in with 12 points and 3 steals.
 
The women, meanwhile, also lost in the Final Four, succumbing to the Red River College Rebels 57-40.
 
Pilots captain Isabella Selk, however, was named Player of the Game for her 10 points, 8 rebounds and two assists. Lauren Wiebe also put up 10 points, and star forward Courtney Engel was named to the All Conference Team for her impressive work over the balance of the season.
 
Nevertheless, head coach Joel Coursey was pleased with his team’s execution and is looking forward to the remainder of the campaign, which will see both Pilots teams participate in upcoming National Christian College Athletic Association and American Christian College Association tournaments.
 
“We executed our game plan and a lot of things went well for us,” he analyzed. “On the other hand, Red River is a tough team and they did their job. A battle like this will only prepare us for what comes next. MCAC is over but we have three more weeks of basketball, so we can’t stop working.”
