The MACJC South Division’s No. 2 seeded Hinds Community College Bulldogs (14-7, 9-5) will take on the MACJC North Division’s No. 3 seeded Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers (15-8, 7-5) on Monday, Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m. at East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Miss.
“I am extremely excited and proud of our men’s basketball program, the coaching staff, and the players; particularly the sophomores who helped lay the foundation last year and are now being rewarded with Hinds first playoff appearance in many years,” said Hinds Athletic Director Gene Murphy.
Forward Dontrell McQuarter is one of the Bulldogs’ sophomores that has been particularly instrumental in the success of the team. McQuarter has played in all 21 games for the Bulldogs this season and is averaging a team-leading 15 points per game.
“It feels good being part of changing the culture of this historic team by buying in to what Coach Yusef has taught us. I’m enjoying the overall experience and helping Hinds bring it because they deserve it,” McQuarter said.
