West Virginia State, Charleston and WVU Tech will all be looking for some needed momentum as each team plays one of its last games before the holiday break today.
State (4-5 overall, 2-2 West Virginia Conference), which has lost two in a row and three of four, will travel to Davis & Elkins for a 4 p.m. tip-off with a chance to even its record before a three-week layoff.
Like State, Tech also finds itself skidding having lost three in a row and five of six. Still, the Golden Bears sit at 8-7 and will host Concord at 2 p.m. with a chance to clinch a winning record for the first semester.
Tech will travel to Shawnee State on Monday before its own break of three weeks and two days.
Charleston is just hoping to keep rolling after winning three in a row. UC (5-1, 2-1 WVC) has the most work left to do, beginning with a home date against Fairmont State (4-2, 2-1) today at 6 p.m.
The Golden Eagles will host Davis & Elkins on Monday before finishing the first semester at Urbana, Ohio, on Wednesday.
COALFIELD SHOOTOUT: The Coalfield Shootout kicks into high gear today with six games at the Madison Civic Center.
