MPC Basketball Schedule: December 22nd – December 31st


First Negaunee, now Ishpeming. Just the latest MPC team to pull out a 3-point victory over the Lady Eskimos!

MARQUETTE, MI – 12/21/2014 –It was another great week of MPC basketball.  There were close games, blowouts, and upsets alike.  A lot of teams, such as the Negaunee Miners boys, have yet to face a conference opponent, while others, like the Norway girls have already faced off against three.  If you’d like to see how things went last week, CLICK HERE!  Christmas break gives a lot of coaches the chance to get things together, implement new game plans, work on conditioning, and whatever else he/she feels their team is lacking at the moment.  The schedule is pretty sparse, so we’re going to just finish out the 2014 portion of this season here and now!  Here’s what’s coming up in the MPC the rest of 2014.
