December 18th and 19th the men's basketball team was in Florida for a pair of NAIA matchups with Southeastern University and Webber International University. The Royals would keep the second game competitive for the first 30 minutes before a good defensive adjustment by WIU helped to secure the win.
"On the court the trip obviously did not go as we had hoped and showed us some areas that need immediate attention. But off the court; the travel, the beach, the hotels, I feel like this trip really brought the team closer together and that is only going to help us down the road" Coach Huck told us.
The Royals get an extended Christmas break before returning to play at home on January 5th for their next matchup. They will be facing NCCAA foe Ozark Christian College at 7pm following the WBB game at 5pm. Come support and Be Royal.
