12th-annual event at Trenton, Mo., junior college had three games Monday, Dec. 19, after weather-caused cancellations last Friday, Saturday
TRENTON, Mo. — Although three days later than intended, due to an ice storm and resulting treacherous travel conditions late last week, the massive 2016 North Central Missouri College Foundation “High School Holiday Hoops” event got some basketball played Monday, at last.
Three of the four originally-scheduled late-afternoon and evening games were contested, with only the would-have-been Southwest Livingston vs. St. Joseph: Lafayette girls’ contest scrubbed yesterday, due to Southwest still being out of session.
Play will continue today (Tuesday, Dec. 20) at NCMC’s Ketcham Community Center in downtown Trenton with a 6-games session on tap, starting at 2 p.m.
