Tonight’s game in Booneville will serve as another step for the Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers as they look to win the MACJC North Division title. NWCC, ranked No. 6 in the latest NJCAA poll, plays the Tigers a week before an even bigger home contest with No. 12 ICC.
The Rangers still have to play No. 3 East Mississippi on the road which means they can’t afford to stub their toe against the Tigers, who are 1-2 overall and 0-1 in North Division play. Last year the Rangers lost 34-28 to the Tigers at home, a loss that ultimately cost them a spot in the playoffs. (September 20, 2012, Page 9)
