Manitoba Colleges Athletics Conference Tournament






The Providence Men’s and Women’s basketball teams played in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference tournament this past weekend.

On Friday, the fourth seeded Providence men’s team lost to #1 seed CMU 82-56. On the same night the fourth seeded Providence women’s team upset #1 seed University of Winnipeg Wesmen. The Cinderella finish was only the fourth conference win of the season for Providence, who defeated the 13-1 Wesmen by a score of 56-51.

On Saturday, the Freemen’s men’s team was outmanned in the high-scoring bronze metal game by the U of W Wesmen, 102-73. The Freemen could not get enough stops to keep it close at the end. The Providence Women’s team put in a good showing against the Red River College Rebels and kept the game close into the second half. But in the end the full-court press and quick offense of Red River was more than Providence could handle. The Rebels came away with the championship by a score of 68-51. Congratulations to both teams on a good season. It was the final season for both head coaches, Patti Parker for the women and Juan Larios for the men.
