The team has rival Kansas City Kansas Community College coming to town Saturday for a huge conference showdown.

Alexis Brown leads the Cavs in scoring with 13.3 per game, Nieka Wheel­er is second with 12.1, and Braile Fields is third with 9.6.

Men’s basketball

The college’s basketball team has been on a little bit of a hot streak as of late. The squad has won three in a row to improve to 11-10 on the year. The Cavs are 3-1 in the conference. The Cavaliers unfortu­nately lost Jaron Rollins for the rest of the season to a torn labrum. Rollins was a key contributor before his season ended. The Cavaliers had a spectacular last second 62-60 win against Cowley Community College with Zach Nelson making the game winning layup. Freshman Danzel Wright is having an outstanding season for the squad, averaging 20.7 a game, which is fourth among players in the Jay­hawk. The Cavs have critical conference games coming up against Kansas City Kansas Community College and Cof­feyville Community College. Both games will go a long way in deciding the winner of the Jayhawk.
