The Pioneers traveled to Gillette, WY on Saturday, March 3 to take on the Pronghorns of Gillette College in the first round of the Region IX playoffs. The winner of this game would advance to the Region IX Elite Eight and the loser would be done.

In the first half, the Pioneers didn’t have an answer for the Pronghorns offense and they got down early. MCC went into the half with a 16 point deficit. The Pronghorns continued their hot shooting in the second half despite the Pioneers best efforts to contain them. The Pioneers fell to the Pronghorns, 106-73.

Perion Little was the high scorer with 20 points. Erie Olonade contributed 14 to the effort. Andrea LoBiondo let the team in rebounds with 5.

With this loss, the Pioneers season is now over. Coach Chase Tait commented on the season, “I am proud of how this team competed down the stretch in a great league. I’m proud of our 2-year guys, Period, Erie, Gavin, and JaRon. This is an awesome bunch of guys that represented MCC very well. We lost to the 2-time Region IX champs and that is nothing to hang our heads about.” The Pioneers ended their season with a 10-21 record.
