The Games

Basketball gets underway for YC on Tuesday, November 28, in Scottsdale, Arizona, where the Roughriders will take on the Scottsdale Community College Fighting Artichokes at 7:30 p.m. Then, on Friday, December 1, YC plays host to the No. 3-ranked Salt Lake Community College Bruins inside of Walraven Gymnasium with tipoff set for 7 p.m.

The Fighting Artichokes

Scottsdale comes into Tuesday’s game at 4-0 with victories over Park JV, Skyline Prep JV, ACU JV and Benedictine JV.

The Bruins

Salt Lake heads to Prescott ranked No. 3 in the country and with an overall record of 8-0. They have beaten Central Wyoming twice, Casper, Gillette, Eastern Wyoming, Northeastern Junior College, Eastern Florida and Florida Southwestern.

Before their matchup with YC, the Bruins will travel to Cheyenne, Wyoming, to play Laramie County on Wednesday.

The Roughriders
