MASON CITY — The NIACC basketball teams open up the regular season this weekend hosting the Konigsmark Klassic. The NIACC women are ranked 10th in the junior college Division II pre-season poll released earlier in the week and they’ll face 7th-ranked Illinois Central tonight before facing Bay College on Saturday. The Lady Trojans only return one sophomore to the squad in Tahya Campbell, but head coach Todd Ciochetto says a number of freshmen are ready to step up.

Ciochetto says he has a number of players who can shoot the ball.

NIACC and Illinois Central have played each other 11 times over the past five seasons with the Cougars holding a 6-5 advantage. Ciochetto says this is one of the better Cougar teams they’ll be facing.

The NIACC-Illinois Central game is scheduled for 6 o’clock tonight, a game you can hear on AM-1300 KGLO, kgloam.com and via the KGLO mobile app.

 

=== The NIACC men face Dakota County Technical College tonight and Bay College tomorrow as part of the Konigsmark Klassic. The Trojans ended up with a 14-16 record last year after starting the season 7-1. Coach Mark Mohl says he’ll have a young team this year but it should be one that can push the ball up the floor.

Mohl says he wants this year’s team to play a more up-tempo style.

Part of this weekend’s Konigsmark Klassic includes Saturday’s reunion of NIACC men’s basketball players who played for former Trojans coach Herb Konigsmark from 1967-1993. Mohl says it will be great to see a number of players coming back for the event.

You can hear tonight’s NIACC-Dakota County game on AM-1300 KGLO, kgloam.com and via the KGLO mobile app starting at about 8 o’clock.
