BREAKING NEWS: Starter Josh Reagan to Sit this Game Out, Foot Surgery Still Healing
By Bronson Peshlakai
KIRTLAND — The Cuyahoga Community College Challenger basketball teams are here ready to take on the Lakeland Community College Lakers today, Feb. 20.
The Lady Challengers (3-15-1, 1-7-1 Ohio Community College Athletic Conference) set to play the Lady Lakers (5-20, 0-9 OCCAC) at 5:30 p.m.
The Lakers have yet to win a game in the conference while the Challengers saw a win at home against Lakeland Jan. 30.
Tri-C missing their star player Darika Mahone for the rest of the season after it was confirmed she tore her anterior cruciate ligament while playing the Owens Community College Express Feb. 6. She is scheduled for surgery soon and will not play any more games this season.
Tri-C Center Josh Reagan will sit out this game, according to Head Coach Randy White. Coach White said Reagan was experiencing discomfort after playing against Edison Community College Feb. 16, where the men’s team won by a large margin of 91-48.
Reagan recently had surgery to remove a plantar’s wart from his right foot. He had sat out three games after the surgery was played mostly in the second half against Edison last Saturday.
White said his sitting out the game today is a precautionary measure to ensure Reagan is fully healed before tournament play begins in a little over two weeks. White said he expects the team to head into conference play ranked third or fourth place, which is a good position to be in.
The Lakeland team leads the conference with 20-5, 8-1 OCCAC record, while Tri-C ranks 4th with 11-13, 4-5 OCCAC record.
