Haviland, KS - The MCC men's basketball came up on the short end on Tuesday night on the road at Barclay College as they lost to the Bears, 76-72. This was the conference opener for both teams. The game was back and forth for a good portion of the first half, but with the Thunder leading 19-18 Barclay rattled off twelve straight points to take a 30-19 lead. MCC was able to close the gap to 35-29 at the break. Early in the second half MCC made a run to close the margin but Barclay responded and stretched the lead out to as many as thirteen points. With MCC trailing 64-56 the Thunder gave one last push and closed the score to 66-65 but that was as close as they could get. Nate Awbrey led MCC with 21 points off the bench. Gabe Awbrey and Zach Smalley each scored 14 points and Daton Aaron was the other player to reach double figures scoring 11 points.
