Your Beaver men's basketball team took on the Coffeyville Red Ravens in the quarterfinals of the Region VI tournament on March 6. The team kept their composure, and through some good defensive play, managed to take control of the game and move on to the final four of the region with a 66-61 win.
The win moves the Beavers to 20-12 on the year, and into the semifinals on March 7 with a rubber match against the Seward County Saints in Koch Arena at 7 p.m. on the campus of Wichita State University.
The Pratt Community College men’s basketball team fell to Seward 72-69 on Feb. 26 and ended the season in third place in the conference. They will host a first round NJCAA Region VI play-off game on Sat., March 1, 2014 at 4 p.m. in the Dennis Lesh Sports Arena.
Your Beaver men’s basketball team dug too big of a hole last night versus the Garden City Broncbusters to get back out. A wide-open 3-pointer by Robert Davis would have stole the game for us, but it went in and out, and the final score read 61-62 Busters.
The loss drops us to 17-11 on the year, and 7-5 in conference play. We are still tied with Barton for third, but Garden and Cloud are now just one game behind us tied in fifth. Hutchinson is one game in front of us in second.
On Feb. 22, Pratt Community College inducted eight former PCC athletes into the Hall of Fame.

Your Beaver men’s basketball team took on the Cougars from Barton CC on Feb. 12 in the Beaver Dome. It was a back and forth affair from the jump, but taking care of the ball, good defense, and precise shooting down the stretch allowed the Beavers to prevail 71-59.
The win puts the team at 17-9 on the year and 7-3 in the Jayhawk West, currently tying for second place with the Blue Dragons from Hutchinson.
Your Beaver men’s basketball team played their hearts out last night in a game that didn’t end up mattering in the big picture much at all. We traveled to the 4-time defending Jayhawk West champion Seward County Saints’ house in Liberal, and got off to bad start. We rallied though, and took the lead around midway of the first half. We held on to the lead until the midpoint of the second half, but never could wrestle it back from the Saints after the 9 minute mark, and the final score read 69-72 Seward. The loss finishes the regular season for us at 18-12 and 8-6 in the Jayhawk West.
Your Beaver men’s basketball team jumped out to an early lead Saturday night in Dennis Lesh against Colby Community College, and never looked back. Our Beaver defense forced the Trojans into some tough attempts early, and turned a 36-17 halftime lead into a 77-56 PCC victory! The win upped us to 18-11 on the year, and 8-5 in the Jayhawk West. With a Hutch loss on Saturday, we climbed into a 3-way tie for 2nd place. Sad thing is, Garden and Cloud are still right behind all of us just 1 game!
Your Beaver men’s basketball team dug too big of a hole last night vs the Garden City Broncbusters to get back out. The fellas did battle, scratch and claw their way very close to getting out though. A Robert Davis wide-open 3-pointer would’ve stole the game for us, but it went in and out, and the final score read 61-62 Busters. The loss drops us to 17-11 on the year, and 7-5 in conference play. We are still tied with Barton for 3rd, but Garden and Cloud are now just one game behind us tied in 5th. Hutch is one game in front of us in 2nd. The story of the night was shooting.
