Athens, WV (WOAY) – Thursday marked Senior Night for Concord basketball, as both teams continued quests to secure a Mountain East tournament berth.
The Mountain Lion men picked up an important 89-66 win over the University of Charleston, in a game where the Golden Eagles established a big lead early before Concord came back. The Mountain Lions could have clinched a spot Thursday had UVa-Wise lost, but they visit the Highland Cavaliers on Saturday.
The Lady Lions struggled throughout the evening against the Lady Golden Eagles, with the 54-36 eliminating them from MEC Tournament contention. They’ll close the season Saturday in Wise, Virginia.
