College Basketball Team Withdraws from Conference

January 30, 2012 7:24 AM | Sports


The men’s basketball team from Assiniboine Community College (ACC) has withdrawn from the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) after not being able to meet the required number of players.

“It is regrettable that this decision had to come at this point in the season,” said ACC athletic director and MCAC president Larry Shannon. “We look forward to getting our men’s basketball team back into competition in 2012-13.”

Before withdrawing, the ACC Cougars were 4-4 and third in the conference standings. While all future games involving the Cougars will be wiped from the MCAC schedule, games completed will continue to count towards the remaining four teams’ records.
