It was another heart breaker for the Pilots this past Saturday evening as they lost once again to the Blazers 49-48. After holding the Blazers to 0 points in the first quarter and leading by as many as 19 points, it was the 4th quarter that did it in for the Pilots. After out playing the Blazer for 30 minutes the Pilots had a 41-28 point lead. With all but 2 players in foul trouble for Providence, the defensive intensity dropped and the Blazers were finally able to get their offense going. Coach Coursey had these words to say after the game, “Tonight was a tough loss especially after playing one of our best defensive games of the season.” “That said, our team is getting stronger each week and the MCAC is wide open.” “With 3 teams so evenly matched, anyone can win the league this year.” Key players for the Pilots were: Crystal Harms with 8 points and 12 rebounds, Isabella Selk with 8 points and 7 rebounds, and Elena Rempel with 13 points 9 rebounds and 5 steals.
 
The men started out strong, going shot for shot with CMU. Down the stretch, it was the Blazers who were able to take advantage of the injured Pilot lineup. CMU wins this game 88-76 improving to 3-3 on the season. Nate Warburton the starting center for the Pilots is listed as day to day with a lower body injury that kept him from dressing in the game against the Blazers. Jonathan Janke is also suffering from a lower body injury and will only return in the New Year. Key players for the Pilots were: Ryan Perpal with 22 points 7 rebounds and 4 steals, Romeo KC with 14 point and 3 assists and 4 steals, and Johnathan Thompson with 20 points 6 rebounds and 6 steals. The Pilots will look to get back in the win Column this weekend as they travel down to North Central University in Minneapolis Minnesota. Providence women will play NCU at 3:00 pm on Friday and Faith Baptist at 11:00 am on Saturday while the men will play NCU at 5:00 pm on Friday and Faith Baptist at 1:00 pm on Saturday.
