February 15th saw many celebrate Valentines day as couples went to the Joe Charles Field House as Culver-Stockton took on the Mustangs. A silent auction was held as many of the players made deserts to help raise funds for breast cancer awareness.

Women’s Game

The Women’s Basketball team would suffer a huge loss to their playoff hopes as they would fall to the Mustangs 56-42. As the first half would be a struggle for the cats as they scored a season low 11 points in the first half trailing 33-11. The Wildcats would continue to trail until the final quarter where they outscored 16-9. But in the end it wasn’t enough.

The cats will move to 9-16(8-13) as they will play their last home game and celebrate their seniors Saturday February 17th against Baker University. They will close out the season with a 2 game road stretch against Graceland and Park. As they are currently tied with Park, Graceland, and Peru State for the 8th seed.

Men’s Game

The men’s squad continues to help their playoff seeding as they pick-up a win against the Mustangs 88-83. Celebrations are in order as starter Robert Fry II picked up his 1,000 career point with a basket in the game. At the end of the half Culver lead 35-33 as they came out and continued to battle with the mustangs.

However Mount Mercy star #1 Ryan Bartley didn’t make it easy as he put up an astounding 31 points the most by any opponent this season. However Tai Walters Whitaker would lead the team with 18 as they pull off the win and improve to 13-12(11-10) on the season. They are currently seeded as 6th and currently set to face 3 seed Central Methodist on the road. However Culver-Stockton has a chance to change this with their next three game against some tough opponents.
