McCOOK, Nebraska -- Men's and women's college basketball dominate the February schedule for the McCook Community College Events Center including back-to-back men's/women's doubleheaders the next two weekends.
The men and women host Otero Friday starting at 5 p.m. and then Trinidad State Saturday starting at 5 p.m. which is also the night for the MCC Booster Club-Dick Driml Chili Cook-off, Phi Beta Lambda Dessert Auction, and YMCA Youth Basketball Night.
