JUCO
Leonardo Castillo (193-F) and the Motlow State Bucks (14-4, 18-10), winners of eight out of their last 10 games, finished in second place in the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) standings and will be the No. 2 seed in the TCCAA/Region VII Tournament, which begins Friday at Cleveland State in Cleveland, Tenn. Motlow will play Sunday at 6pm against the winner of Friday's Cleveland State/Jackson State contest. Walters State is the top seed, with Southwest Tennessee third and Dyersburg State fourth.
Motlow has won the previous two tournaments and represented the region in the NJCAA National Championship Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas. The back-to-back titles were the first repeat championships for any sport at Motlow State. Now the Bucks have an opportunity to continue to make history as they begin their quest for a third straight title.

D2 Round up
Shaun Willett (193-F) followed with 23 points and 16 rebounds to record his 23rd double-double of the season as the No.9/9 Queens University of Charlotte men's basketball team (26-3 18-1 SAC) prevailed in the extra session, 99-91, over Wingate University (16-11 12-7 SAC) on Wednesday night at Cuddy Arena.
Willett made history early in the first half when with his third rebound of the game he recorded his 336th board of the season, breaking a program record for rebounds in a single season. The previous mark of 335 was set by Soce Faye in 1997-1998.
The Royals conclude the regular season on Saturday versus Mars Hill University on Senior Day at the Levine Center. Opening tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. Live play-by-play coverage will be available on the https://queensathletics.com/sports/2017/8/22/queens-sports-network.aspx

Clash in the PBC
Miguel Arnold (180-PG) and the Augusta University men's basketball team played rival Shaquan Jules (201-F) and No. 5 nationally-ranked USC Aiken on Wednesday night in a Peach Belt Conference showdown and won 94-75 for the teams ninth consecutive victory. Arnold, a freshman guard, had 19 first half points and finished with a season-high 27. Arnold hit five or more three pointers for the fifth time this season as he went 7-for-9 from the three-point line.
Arnold nailed back-to-back three pointers in two possessions to push the lead to 15, 41-26. With the halftime clock expiring, Augusta banked in a buzzer-beater three pointer for to stay on top 51-38. Augusta held a 20-point advantage with 6:00 minutes left in the game and cruised the rest of the way - dribbling the ball out as the clock expired in front of a roaring crowd of faithful Jaguar fans.
Jules, a freshman forward, totaled five points, four rebounds and two blocks.
AU (22-5, 18-3 PBC) plays its final regular-season game of the season on Saturday, March 2 at Lander in Greenwood, S.C. The game tips off at 43:30 p.m while USC Aiken (24-3, 18-3 PBC) return to action Saturday when they play at Young Harris at 3:30 p.m. Live stats and video will be available at PacerSports.com.
The Peach Belt Conference Tournament begins on Wednesday, March 6 when the top four teams host the first round quarterfinal games. The highest remaining seed on the men's side after the PBC quarterfinals hosts the PBC semifinals and finals March 9-10.

Delgado and Clayton State eliminated
Savvon Delgado (183-G) and Clayton State (9-18, 6-15 PBC) overcome an 18 point second half deficit before falling 78-68 at Georgia Southwestern (5-22, 3-18 PBC) in an NCAA Division II men's basketball game on Wednesday, February 27. Facing a team with nothing to play for can be one of the most dangerous things late in the season and that was certainly the case as the Hurricanes came out and played like their namesake, blowing out to a 36-16 lead by the 6:51 mark. The Lakers will close out the 2018-19 campaign on Saturday, March 2 when they host rival Columbus State. Game time is set for approximately 4:30 p.m. at The Loch with Senior Day festivities preceding the contest. With the loss, Clayton State has been eliminated from contention for a spot in the 2019 Peach Belt Conference Tournament.

Mekhi Hendricks (185-G) and Millersville (16-11, 11-8 PSAC) close out the regular season at home against East Stroudsburg on Saturday, March 2 at 4pm. ESU (19-6, 16-3) can clinch the division's regular season title with a win. Eight teams from the region will advance to this year's national tournament; the conference champions from the PSAC, CIAA and Mountain East, and five at-large. Millersville must win their conference tournament that starts on Monday. https://millersvilleathletics.com/watch/?Live=800&type=Live

CHICAGO - The on-court portion of the draft combine wrapped up on Friday, with two more scrimmages giving prospects a chance to perform in front of the entire league.
